Dane Brown, manager at WorkSpace, got a call from a friend who told him about a mysterious photo of a heavily tattooed man on the company's Flickr web page.
Police knew the computer used to broadcast the picture was stolen because Flickr login details were stored on those PCs only.
Allegedly, a ransom has been issued - either the thief's demands are met or he posts another picture with one more piece of clothing missing. Brown is said to be facing a dilemma.
