Baugh formerly served as the online commerce company’s senior director of safety and security.

David and Ina Steiner were running a newsletter called EcommerceBytes which focuses on the eCommerce industry. eBay executives deemed the publication critical of the company and then began subjugating the couple to threats and other harassment 

Investigators say Baugh and other eBay workers sent anonymous and disturbing packages to the couple’s home as intimidation. Those packages included a book on surviving the death of a spouse, a bloody pig mask, and a fetal pig.
