Police Investigate Nude Pictures Of Teens
Central Ohio police are investigating nude photos of underage teens which have shown up on a social media site. WOSU reports investigators are being tight-lipped about the case.
The investigation was prompted after Westerville Police say it received a call about an Instagram account â€“ a social media photo sharing site â€“ that contained nude pictures of juveniles.
Westerville Police said the case was out of its jurisdiction and referred the case to Genoa Township Police.
Genoa Police Chief Steve Gammill declined comment. But on the departmentâ€™s Facebook page, Gammill refered to the case as a â€œcriminal investigationâ€.
Gammill said details are only shared with prosecutors, especially in those â€œwhen it involves juveniles.â€ Gammill went on to write, â€œWe make sure the parents are aware of their childâ€™s involvement.â€
Westerville City Schools declined to say whether any of its students are associated with the case. But it noted on the districtâ€™s Facebook page that â€œpolice consider this matter to be a societal issue involving teenagers and their inappropriate use of technology.â€
The district post also said it wishes for an expedient resolution so the issue â€œcan be addressed appropriately with our students and their families.â€
