Tracing to Prove Do Not Contact Violation - Help

Post by finallyfree01 » Tue Oct 17, 2017 1:02 pm

I received an email in my Spam box. It is obviously from my Ex Fiance who plead guilty to a felony charge in September and has a no contact order regarding me. I am trying to find out where this originated so that I can take the information to the police.
I used the tracking tool on the whatsmyipaddress website and it told me this information:

The source host name is "" and the source IP address is
Geo-Location Information

Country United States
State/Region MO
City Kansas City
Latitude 39.1472
Longitude -94.5735
Area Code 816

My ex lives in Beaverton, Oregon so I know there is more tracing to do...but I do not know how to look further. Is anyone able to help me?

Thank you!
