A website that posts sexually explicit photos of teenaged girls reportedly put up photos of students from Cypress Bay High School, according to morning show DJs at Power 96.
- Deputies Charge Cypress Bay's Bathroom Peeper
Normally, morning show DJs breaking news should be taken with an entire seven-pound bag of salt from BJ's Wholesale Club.
But in this case, the rumors seem to be taken seriously enough that the Broward County Sheriff's Office and Broward County Schools are looking into it, calling it a "criminal investigation."
The photos were allegedly taken on the girls' smartphones, and the website reportedly identifies each student by name.
Power 96 was bombarded with phone calls this morning, ranging from concerned to outrage.
The DJs did not divulge the website's URL on air. So that's good.
The photos and website were brought to a school administrator's attention by a student, according to a BSO incident report. The administrator was told that the website has pictures of naked, underage girls.
Oh, it gets worse.
Some of the pictures on the website apparently have images of teens engaged in sex acts.
There were reportedly at least ten photos of the Cypress Bay High students on the website, all identifying them by name. One student claims to have recognized the students in the photos, according to police.
The nude photos of the students appear to have been taken by the girls themselves, according to BSO.
A report has been filed to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children website.
Meanwhile, Twitter has gone off the rails with people chiming in on the whole situation.
This isn't the first time Cypress Bay has been embroiled in a sexual scandal involving students.
In 2009, a 17-year-old student was nabbed snapping cell-phone photos of female students going to the bathroom at the school. One of the victims was 15 years old.
Just last year, a wrestling coach at the school was accused of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a female student who was 18 at the time.
