PUTNAM COUNTY, Tenn. -- Detectives believe someone hacked into a teen's Facebook page and now the girl has become target for sexual predators.
Putnam county sheriff David Andrews said the hacker stole teen's identity and then started posting messages on another social networking page. The teen said the posts were racy.
"They were very vulgar. Things I would never say," said the girl who asked that we not identify her or her family members.
Detectives believe the hacker -- posing as the teen -- then started chatting with adult men. Then earlier this week a strange man pulled into the driveway of the family while the victim and her dad were playing basketball. The father confronted the visitor.
"He said I'm here to see my daughter. And I called her over and said do you know this guy? And she said no," said the father.
The stranger told him that he met the girl in an online chat room.
"Which she had no part of and I told him you have three seconds to get off my property," said the father.
The father believes the man was there to have sex.
"Could he have been a pedophile? Certainly," said sheriff Andrews. He believes the hacker linked the girl -- and her home address -- to an online network of men looking to meet young girls. One man has already showed up at the teen's home. And there could be more.
"Others certainly could should up," said Andrews.
"I'm worried someone else will get my information and come to my house when I'm alone," said the teen.
Experts are trying to find the person who hacked into the teen's Facebook page. And the sheriff has increased patrols around the teen's home.
