Cops Bust ‘Sextortion’ Ring That Led Michigan Teen To Kill Himself

  • Seventeen-year-old Jordan DeMay was a homecoming king, a star athlete and a beloved role model at Marquette Senior High School in Michigan.
  • He was also the victim of what investigators say was an “international sextortion ring” that pushed him to take his life last March.
  • Disturbing Instagram messages between the teen and an alleged Nigerian scammer, who posed as a teenage girl to extort him, were revealed Wednesday by U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan Mark Totten after a monthslong investigation that led to the indictment of three men.
