TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - The FBI is investigating allegations that someone tried to extort nude photographs from the newly crowned Miss Teen USA after hacking into a webcam in her Southern California bedroom.
Cassidy Wolf told the website of NBC's "Today" show that she received an anonymous email several months ago. The sender claimed to have stolen images from the camera on her home computer.
The FBI tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/14CZPcR) that the emailer threatened to go public with the images unless Wolf provided nude pictures.
The 19-year-old Wolf, a graduate of Great Oak High School in Temecula, won the Miss Teen USA crown Saturday.
The FBI says she's one of more than a dozen alleged victims in the case.
