I don't understand why the website won't accept a blanked-out photo of no-one? Basically, be upfront about the fact that your reporter is anonymous.
It's standard practice in papers local to me to have stories with the byline "Court reporter" or whatever. People are not too stupid to understand that sensitive issues mean that journalists need protection. Take it back to the site and ask them not to be so inflexible.
