MENASHA – Police say they are nearing an end to their investigation into teens sharing nude photos.
Investigators are reviewing a final piece of evidence and contacting the parents of the teens, police said Wednesday. As soon as the people involved are notified, police plan to recommend charges to prosecutors.
Last month, police said they were investigating more than 50 nude or semi-nude photos of students uploaded to the web. About a dozen students – boys and girls – are part of that investigation. The teens involved are all between 14 and 16 years old and most go to Menasha High School, but some from other districts may be involved.
Officers said the teens took pictures of themselves, sent them to people they knew, who then uploaded them to a password-protected website without the permission of the people who took the photos. The password got out to other students, and that is when the school district was notified.
Police expect their investigation to wrap up by Monday.
