"She was like 'Oh my God, mom. You're not going to believe this. Look at this picture.' like she was shocked,” a Chesapeake mom who doesn’t want to be identified tells NewsChannel 3.
She says her ninth-grade daughter showed her the photo sent to her on Twitter Tuesday night.
"Everybody knows about it she said. She said it was like the talk of the school yesterday."
While the mom says the rumor is that the teacher sent the photo to a student, police say he may actually be the victim.
For that reason, NewsChannel 3 chose not to identify him at this time.
More than a year ago, police say the teacher reported his phone stolen to his cell phone provider.
Then, Tuesday night he found out the very personal picture saved on that phone had been shared on the web.
NewsChannel 3 traced the photo to an Instagram profile where close-ups of private parts and even naked body shots are being posted anonymously by VAWarning 757. And the user is calling out for others to submit those photos in order to expose the "hoes" of Virginia Beach and Chesapeake.
Police say they do have a couple of potential suspects in mind, but they're still investigating.
Chesapeake Public Schools officials say their human resources department is also looking into it, but they can’t comment further as it is a personnel matter.
Since NewsChannel 3 first aired this story at four o’clock Wednesday evening, the user changed the Instagram account name.
