Ok so I am not entirely sure if this is where I was supposed to post this but here goes.
I recently have been victim of what I guess we all call a hacker, gained access to everyone of my passwords to my emails and facebook account, if that was all that happened things wouldn't be as bad, the person sent out emails accusing me of serious offenses, emails were sent to my boss etc. thankfully my reputation is something I strive to protect and no one doubted it was someone who simply wanted to harm me. Now I have suspicion as to who it is, but I need proof in order to proceed legally. I tried tracing the original emails to obtain an IP address however using the "Full Header" method only gives me the IP address that belongs to the Internet service company of the person who sent it, this information I obtained after running an IP look up and a who is search. I dont know where else to go, my country is third world and police force has no technology available to obtain what I am looking for and I cannot press charges unless I have some kind of proof, any help would be much appreciated thank you.

Sorry, but the only way you will get information is via the legal route - court order to the Internet Provider of the offending party forcing them to reveal whom that IP address belongs to.
