Carlinville among schools on nude image site, probe uncovers
Carlinville High School is making statewide news after being found on an “Image Board” list that solicits inappropriate images such as nude photos, the Edgar County Watchdogs reported recently.
The school is one of 67 in Illinois that made the list after a two-month NBC investigation. This study reportedly “uncovered dozens of anonymous image boards bearing the logos of Chicago-area and Illinois high schools, in which users request, even trade, nude photographs of what appear to be former students.”
A majority of the posts consisted of anonymous users using a female’s first and last name as well as her graduating class when they asked for the images. A number of them went so for as requesting nude photos of the former students, which are considered “wins” on the board.
While the schools are said to be grateful for NBC uncovering the soliciting trend, a number of them refused to comment because of what they said was a lack of information on the topic or investigation details. The schools also urged any students who fell victim to contact local law enforcement immediately.
