Investigators: Texas Man Scammed Nude Photos From Peoria Teen
(Peoria, IL) — Investigators say a 17-year-old from Peoria is the latest victim of an online modeling scam that ended with nude pictures. Police officers in Texas arrested Mark Barnwell earlier this month. Detectives say he would contact young women with promise of modeling work, then push them toward nudity. The young woman from Peoria told police that she was asked for modeling pictures, first with her clothes on, then with her clothes off. Police say Barnwell then threatened to release the pictures if she didn’t send more.
