Parkville billboard controversy: Revenge porn suspect on TV news for billboard

The Parkville man who made headlines a few months ago for creating a pornographic revenge web site and distributing fliers in the victim’s neighborhood is back in the news.

The face of Andrew Snyder, 40, has recently been seen on a billboard along Highway 45 in Parkville. The electronic billboard message includes his photo and the text “Andrew Snyder wishes you a wonderful day.”

The billboard was taken down after the management was notified of the charges against Snyder, and after the billboard image was featured on KCTV5 news.

Neighbors told KCTV5 they were afraid of Snyder and his behavior, with the billboard being just the latest example of his bizarre activities.

Snyder himself appeared in court on Thursday, May 2, seeking a continuance. Snyder is scheduled to appear back in court on Thursday, June 6. Judge James Van Amburg ordered pre-trial release supervision for Snyder on Thursday, May 9, just days after the report featuring the billboard aired on local news.

Snyder was charged in December 2018 with non-consensual dissemination of private images with the intent to harass the victim. The victim also filed an order of protection against him.

According to court documents, the Platte County Sheriff’s Office was notified in September that fliers displaying a website address and stating “I’ll do what your wife won’t” along with a per-hour rate and the personal contact information of the victim — including her full name, home address, license plate number and more — were being distributed in her neighborhood. The victim’s husband’s personal information was also on the flier. Additionally, banners with the website address were placed at the entrance of the subdivision.

The victim said during a separation from her husband she had briefly dated Snyder. When she reconciled with her husband, Snyder became vengeful and threatened to ruin her life, she said. The website contained nude images of the victim, photos which the victim said had been taken by a professional photographer and were stored on a disk. When the website appeared, the victim realized the disk had been stolen.

A subpoena of the web hosting provider showed the site had been created by Snyder in early September.

Since the initial report, six additional reports have been taken by the Sheriff’s Office, according to the statement of probable cause. The fliers were also distributed in the victim’s mother’s neighborhood in Kansas City and at the victim’s husband’s workplace in Lenexa, Kan. A co-worker of the husband was able to identify Snyder as the source of the fliers that were handed out in the parking lot.
