Teen sex photo probe under way in Edmonds

EDMONDS -- The police department is investigating a case where a photo of three teens engaging in “an apparent sexual act” was posted on the Internet.

The Edmonds Police Department said it was called last Thursday by officials at Edmonds-Woodway High School and told about the photo.

“The picture showed the individuals involved in an apparent sexual act. The picture did not display any genitalia from any of the involved students,” the department said in a news release.

Police said the initial investigation showed that there were three involved parties -- a 15-year-old girl and two boys, 17 and 18.

“All were cooperative and initially interviewed at the school,” the police statement said. “It appears at this time that the incident occurred outside of school hours for the students and away from district property.  The picture had allegedly been posted by a friend of the male students on the Internet. That matter is also being investigated.”

The case has been assigned to a detective for further investigation, the department said.
