Some survivors feel better knowing where their rapist is in terms of their own sense of security, and it's unsurprising to me that in the Internet age, you'll find people "keeping an eye out," in that way.

Per your feelings of obsessions with the subject, I'd just make sure that you're enacting that in a way which is therapeutic for you -- healing for you -- rather than in a way that doesn't make you feel so good. You might, for instance, consider reading up on the subject of healing from rape, rather than rape itself.
