Police probe nude Facebook photo report

NEW CASTLE — Police are investigating a Facebook exchange between a 13-year-old New Castle girl and a man from Utica, Pa.

New Castle police said the teen allegedly sent the man, age 31, nude photographs of herself.

The police received a report about the matter from Lawrence County Children and Youth Services, after it had been reported to them by the girl’s mother.

She said she became aware when she received a text message from an unfamiliar phone number. The text was for her daughter and instructed her to “get me on Facebook,” police reported.

Police said the mother gave them access to her daughter’s Facebook account and said she had saved a conversation between the girl and the man. The officer saw a few nude photos of the girl that were sent to the man, and the dialogue was sexual in nature between the two of them.

The police said they have sent a request to Facebook to view all of the girl’s conversations for the past two months and are awaiting the information.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
