The case of nudes with artificial intelligence in Almendralejo is still open. According to investigation sources, in the last 24 hours one more girl has gone to testify with her parents at the police station in this city of Badajoz with just over 30,000 residents. There are already 22 minors who are victims of a case that has turned the town upside down. The Local Operational Group of the municipality’s police station has also identified “so far” 10 of the alleged perpetrators, all of them minors. The investigation is not closed.
The case affects four of the five educational centers that have Compulsory Secondary Education in the town. The Spanish Data Protection Agency opened an ex officio investigation this Wednesday. Parents’ fear is that fake nude images of their daughters will be uploaded to pornographic websites.
It all started last week, with back to school. Isabel, 14 years old, went to her school on Tuesday with the hope of a new school year. That morning, after entering the patio, a rumor spread from group to group. There was nothing else talked about among the students. Most commented that there were photos of naked students roaming around on cell phones. Isabel, who hides her real name at the express wish of her mother, then went out to recess with her friends. Suddenly, a boy approached her in the middle of the yard and told her that he had seen a naked photo of her.
The young woman was scared. At noon, when she returned home, the first thing she did was inform her mother. “Mom, they say there’s a naked photo of me hanging around. That they have done it through an artificial intelligence application. I’m afraid. There are also girls who have received it.” Sara C., her 44-year-old mother, then contacted the mother of her daughter’s best friend, who had also just informed her family of what had happened. After the conversation, the mothers begin to make calls. The case had just exploded.
Now, seven days later, what is known is that a group of kids from the municipality captured the photos of the Instagram and WhatsApp profiles of at least 20 girls from the town and even, according to the mother of one of the affected minors, They photographed another during a volleyball training session in a municipal pavilion and then uploaded all these images to an artificial intelligence application. And so, in a few seconds, remove their clothes as if they were real nudes. Someone later created a video with images of seven of them. The mothers have organized themselves in a WhatsApp chat and there are already 27 members. Not all of them have seen photos of their daughters, but they have been told that they exist. There has even been a case of extortion of a minor with a snapshot through a fake Instagram profile.
