“It’s not like there’s a master of the Internet or King of the Internet,” explained Vaughn. “There’s not one place that you can go to have these images removed.”
With the help of Beaverton police, KGW found an anonymous website where users trade nude photos of former classmates. We are not revealing the website to protect potential victims.
Beaverton police reviewed the site and found the online forum included the names of 13 Oregon high schools and all major colleges in the state. Users on the website request and trade nude or revealing photos of what appears to be former students, police explained.
