Reported: Wednesday, October 16, 2013 4:03 PM EDT
An Ohio police chief says photos taken of an alleged rape last week may seem despicable but are also helping police in their investigation.
A police report says the female student reported unconsenting sexual conduct with a man on a street near campus between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday.
Athens Police Chief Tom Pyle tells WBNS-TV in Columbus that the photos and a video posted online that night are essential to the investigation.
Ohio University says in a statement it is assisting the investigation and providing support to the accuser.
