Middle school teacher Joel Fowler apparently posted nude pics of himself on Craigslist

Categories: Crime
A person close to Fowler's family sent us these photos of Joel.
Joel Fowler, a teacher at Minneapolis's Olson Middle School, has been charged with felony electronic solicitation of a child thanks to a Craigslist post he published "looking for a soon-to-be or recent high school graduate who wants to play with a just out of college guy." (Read the full backstory here.)

But it doesn't appear that was the only Craigslist casual encounters post Fowler published on Tuesday. In fact, another one that looks to have been posted by him as well tries to entice women with a photo of a man naked from the neck down. (See it for yourself on page three of this post.)

Are these the sex-seeking Craigslist posts posted by a former state legislator?

A person close to Fowler's family who has known Joel for about a decade tells us "he's had issues, behavioral issues, but I never would've predicted this." (She asked us to withhold her name.)

Our source says Fowler called his fiance from jail and told her about his arrest. She then spread the news to Fowler's family before the story was picked up by the local media.

The wedding, scheduled for August, "isn't officially off, but it's off," our source says.

"He was engaged until he called her from jail," she says. "They lived together and she has all his passwords."

This is the post that drew the attention of authorities and led to Fowler's arrest.

Our source directed us to other posts she says Fowler published on Craigslist, including one from Tuesday entitled "Just Got Back From Omaha" that says, "So I'm taking the day off today. We can do WHATEVER you want." (Fowler told cops he called in sick the day he was arrested.)

"I was there for a High School Graduation. Damn did it make me horny," the post continues. "Right now all I want is a young 18 year tight girl to please for the day."

Our source says that post especially upsets her.
