TORpedo'd dev dumps Doxbin files after police raids

They control one or more TOR nodes, so they could watch as it passes through the first node, and see what the packet looks like on the other side. To ensure that they know which packet is theirs, they could cut traffic to that node from external sources just long enough so theirs becomes the only packet passing through it.

As for tracking it, I'm sure that they have a full map of where every tor node sits and have wire taps at their closest routers (well, closest that they control).
