Police are investigating the origins of a Dropbox page that contained images of female Duxbury High School students in “varying stages of undress.”
Duxbury police said in a statement Thursday they were alerted to the page by school staff Wednesday and quickly worked to shut it down. Both school and police officials have been notifying the parents of the students pictured.
“There are some young people here who are very embarrassed and very upset,” Police Chief Matthew Clancy said in a statement. “They are victims. They made a mistake and someone took advantage of that. Unfortunately we are learning that many communities have been dealing with this very issue. We will join the Schools as needed and requested in educating students on the negative impacts of this activity.”
The department said officers are focusing on identifying the victims involved and the person responsible for creating the page.
