Identifying someone from IP, hard part over?

I'll try to make this short and sweet, but descriptive. I do tech support for a school. A teacher is getting lewd photos and emails from a fake twitter account and on school forums. We got the IP from an email, I googled, a lot, and connected this IP to a YouTube channel, found a video of a student who has this particular teacher. So I got my guy, right? Turns out this kid makes good grades, but has brothers. I find a Facebook page with his alias that links back to one of the brothers. So with an IP, how do I determine which kid it is doing this? Can I link a houses IP to one device? Find a mac address from the emails/twitter posts with the IP? Hell it could be their dad, because the external IP doesn't point to one device in the house, right?

I would say you have done what you can. The next step is to turn this over to the proper authorities. They have their ways of finding out who is guilty and what the appropriate punishment should be.
