The Ice Bucket prank suspects that tricked a 15-year-old autistic boy and then dumped a pail of feces and urine over his head have been identified.

Their names have not been released and no one has been arrested or charged, Bay Village, Ohio Police Chief Mark Spaetzel said in an email to the media Monday afternoon.

The news comes after Drew Carey, Jenny McCarthy, and Donnie Wahlberg pledged $30,000 to anyone who could identify the high schoolers responsible for the fake ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Cleveland.com initially reported the story on Thursday, and it soon caught the attention of hometown hero Carey, currently the host of "The Price is Right." He was repulsed by the story and took to Twitter to offer $10,000 to help. Shortly thereafter, McCarthy, the mother of a special needs child with autism, and Wahlberg also tweeted their support and matching funds, bringing the total reward to $30,000.







Spaetzel addressed the pledge money in his Monday statement.

"Regarding the celebrities offering rewards to help find who committed [these] terrible acts, reward money is not necessary as we have identified the participants. However, we are grateful for their offers and would like to assist if they are willing to contact the BVPD directly."

The victim's mother said that her son "was embarrassed because he did not know what the contents [of the bucket] were until afterwards, and then he didn't want anybody to know."
