The SBI says it is investigating dozens of Instagram accounts linked to the probe that began earlier this month in Wake County. The SBI says a growing number of law enforcement agencies across the state have now started their own investigations. The SBI is now investigating at least 30 accounts involving nude photos of minors in at least nine counties in North Carolina. Wake Forest police asked the SBI to step in last week after a mother complained about nude photos of her teenage daughter appearing on the social media site.
Several other law enforcement agencies in North Carolina, including police in Rowan County, are now launching their own investigations into the scandal.
