Duxbury Police are investigating after a DropBox page was found with images of female students in varying stages of undress.
Duxbury High School staff notified police on Wednesday of the presence of a DropBox page that allegedly contained images of some female students in varying stages of undress.
Police investigators have since shut down the page.
Police and school officials notified the parents of those students involved.
Duxbury Police said they are focusing on notifying anyone who may be a victim and to identify who may be responsible for creating the page.
"There are some young people here who are very embarrassed and very upset," Duxbury Police Chief Matt Clancy said. "They made a mistake and someone took advantage of that.
Duxbury parent Karen Wong said the incident is concerning.
"I was disappointed," she said. "It’s really unfortunate. As a parent we caution our kids about a variety of things."
Duxbury Public Schools Superintendent Ben Tantillo released a statement on Thursday:
The Duxbury High School administrators were made aware that a DropBox file had been created with a list of female students from Duxbury High School. They received this information from one of our students. These lists had files that were supposed to be pictures of our female students in a variety of undress.
Upon hearing this, the administrators immediately called our School Resource Officer who in turn called the Chief of the Duxbury Police. The Duxbury Police are investigating this issue and have been interviewing the students whose names appear on the list with their parents. The high school administrators did call the parents of the students to let them know what they had heard and that the police would be calling. The police have also been working with DropBox to determine who created this file.
This issue is now in the hands of the police who will communicate their findings to the school district once their investigation is complete.
An investigation is ongoing. No charges have been filed at this time.
