Comments: Who Has This Phone Now?

If they are under age (or we suspect so) children's privacy should prevail. Blur their faces and/or contact the Thai authorities.

Someone connected with the MMM project let me know that they believe this is a young woman, and so therefore, they believe it's okay to post. But you bring up a good point. Also, my understanding is that the Thai authorities have been contacted.

When in doubt "they believe this is a young woman" we should try to protect the unprotected. I couldn't assure that the 3 girls are over 18. The 2 girls in the second photo seem to be wearing some secondary school uniform.

Any material obtained this way shouldn't be published (child or adult). IMHO.

These seem pretty clearly to be under 18yo school children. I agree their privacy should be protected.

This is such a wonderful mystery. I see no problem in posting the photos - they haven't tried to return the phone, right? In fact they've avoided it.
