A former online troll who spent 12,000 hours abusing strangers from her basement says she is "haunted" by her past - and posted a video apology to her victims.

Landon Eason, 61, grew up in an abusive household and said she used to project her issues and anger on strangers in chatrooms and chess forums to cope with her own personal pain.

The former medical interpreter would logon on for five hours a night, seeking out online users to pick on using her alias username CBSmudge.
