LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)--  Officials know who created some of the Instagram pages that posted, “inappropriate,” photos of JCPS students, according to Christi Lanier-Robinson, director of communications and community relations for Jefferson County Public Schools.
 
School officials first learned of the photos Thursday morning when students approached principals at district high schools.  They said some photos were put on Instagram without their permission.
 
Victims are mostly high school girls and some of the photos are nude.  Comments on the photos were sexually explicit, according to Lanier-Robinson. 
 
They do not think just one person is behind the pages.  JCPS passed along information to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and LMPD confirms their Crimes Against Children unit is also investigating. 
 
Some of the pages have been taken down, according to JCPS.  Area superintendents will be sending out a letter tomorrow to middle and high school principals about the incidents.
