University of Wisconsin Police say they are investigating what led to the photo leak — including whether the player’s phone was hacked. Authorities noted the unnamed player is not suspected and she doesn’t know how the photos were leaked.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Marc Lovicott, University of Wisconsin Police’s executive director of communications, said none of the players on the team are being investigated.

“This is a unique case because of the high profile of the girls involved and our detectives are working on this case as a priority,” Lovicott said. “Nothing like that is suspected in this case and again, this case is unique because of the high profile of the players.”

According to Wisconsin law, it’s illegal to share explicit photos without consent, which means whoever leaked the nude snapshots would’ve needed permission from all 18 members of the volleyball team to share the images.

The 40 photos and videos were reportedly shot in December 2021 after the Badgers won the NCAA national volleyball title.

Pictures included members of the team flashing their breasts at the camera while celebrations commenced in the locker room. The leak was revealed on Oct. 18 after team members saw their photos trending on TikTok.

It was then reported to police.

University of Wisconsin Athletics later released a statement, noting they are “aware that private photos and video of UW volleyball student-athletes that were never intended to be shared publicly are being circulated digitally.”
