BATON ROUGE- State prison advisers are trying to figure out who is creating online profiles for inmates in the state prison system.

Pictures and biographies have surfaced on a website where inmates solicit pen pals. Some are looking for love on meetaninmate.com.

"The department strongly discourages people who might see these postings just not to respond," said Pam Lanorde with the La. Department of Corrections.
