OAKLAND, Maine (AP) -- Police are trying to get the bottom of Facebook pages that keep resurfacing with sexually explicit images of young girls in Maine.
Maine State Police Detective David Armstrong tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1JCal9v) that five separate Facebook pages had been removed from Facebook by Thursday morning. Three other pages popped up later Thursday, the paper reports.
The State Police Computer Crimes Unit is working with Facebook to determine who created the accounts.
Armstrong said he couldn't say for sure whether there were additional pages.
The pages generated a flurry of responses from the public, including many people who expressed disgust and disapproval. Police said the images could violate the state's child pornography laws.
