hackerVictims of the leaked nude photographs which were being shopped around on an international pornographic site have identified at least eight medical students from the University of the West Indies at the St. Augustine campus.

Police Service’ Corporate Communications Manager, Ellen Lewis said yesterday that victims have been coming forward and reporting the crimes to the Fraud Squad, which has led to a full scale investigation with Cyber Crime Unit.

A close relative to one of the victims spoke with the Power Breakfast show on Power 102.1fm this morning, who said they have been trying to contact the site to have her image removed, before further damage is done to her character.
