Edmonds police investigating lewd photo of high school students sent on Twitter

Edmonds police sex-crimes detectives are investigating an incident in which a pair of Edmonds-Woodway High School students were photographed having sex with a teenage girl.

The incident was revealed when another student sent out the photo on Twitter.

Police became aware of the photograph last week when the Edmonds School District called, said Sgt. Mark Marsh. Detectives have identified the students involved, including the boy who took the picture and tweeted it. That boy was a student from Kings High School in Shoreline, he said.

Police are investigating whether the photograph might violate child pornography laws or possibly involve statutory rape. The boys were 17 and 18 at the time, and the girl was believed to be 15, Marsh said.
