Investigation of nude student photos expands
RALEIGH (AP) — Six more counties are now involved in an investigation into nude photos of North Carolina high school students showing up on social media.
The investigation began this month when a woman called Wake Forest police to tell them that her daughter had learned that someone had posted nude photos of her on Twitter and Instagram.
A statement from the State Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday said the agency is now looking into similar instances in Chatham, Johnston, Edgecombe, Craven, Randolph and Surry counties. Investigations were already under way in Wake, Durham and Pitt counties.
The Durham County Sheriff’s Office reports two instances last week where girls reported nude photos of them appeared online.
Search warrants show authorities have subpoenaed Facebook, which owns Instagram, for user information associated with several accounts.
