In a scandal that has rocked the small town of Kennebunk, Maine, 29-year old Zumba instructor Alexis Wright is facing several charges of prostitution after it was discovered that men were frequenting the dance studio to pay for sex rather than a workout.

Now, the first round of names out of 100 alleged participants has been released, and Kennebunk residents are eager to scour the list to see if it contains anyone they may know. Officials had hinted last week that documents would be released, much to the chagrin of the locals, who found themselves simultaneously repulsed and curious about the news.

“Any time something like that happens, people get curious. It’s almost like the newspapers are teasing us that there are prominent names on the list. But maybe it’ll be nothing,” said Dan Breton, a business owner in town.

Officials have seized computers and photographs of documented sex acts which took place inside the studio and are currently working on building a case for prosecution. But with all the information they have to compile, it could take a while. For now, they are exposing a few men at a time to the world:

Gary D. Bahlkow
Jens W. Bergen
Norman P. Crepeau
Joseph P. Cuetara
Kenneth A. Fairbanks
Donald F. Hill
Monie B. Hobbs Jr.
David Kline
Robert R. Labonte
Dale P. Madore
Paul A. Main
Harry J. McMann
Kevin L. Pagliccia
Claude S. Palmer Jr.
Philip K. Parker
Colin P. Powers
Clinton J. Ray
James A. Soule
John D. Verreault
James P. White
Peter M. Wormell Sr.
