EDGEWOOD, Md. -- Harford County authorities are investigating nude photos posted on Facebook that appear to be of girls from Edgewood High School.
Sheriff's office spokesman Edward Hopkins said Friday that the page was taken down shortly after police began looking into the matter Tuesday.
Hopkins says deputies were alerted by the mother of a boy who lives in the school district. The spokesman says deputies looked at the website and saw more than a dozen pictures of young women in various stages of undress, including some fully naked.
He says the page title referred to Edgewood High School but it wasn't the school's official page.
Hopkins says the photos contained no evidence of sexual activity or coercion, so child pornography laws may not apply.
