Austin police investigate Web site

From staff reports

Austin police are investigating whether a Web site showing images of Austin High School's principal being beaten up contains physical threats against the administrator.

The Web site shows pictures of Principal Joe Brown being "mutilated," said Austin Police Chief Paul Philipp.

A secretary found a piece of paper with the Web site address taped to the office door Saturday morning, Philipp said. When she called up the Web site, "Wanna Beat Up the Principal," the site showed three attacks on Brown, with the wounds getting more serious with each click of the mouse, Philipp said.

A school information systems manager traced the Internet service provider to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
