Police say a central Ohio man has committed suicide after authorities discovered of hundreds of videos of naked woman they say the man filmed from outside their windows.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said about 50 women were targets of 38-year-old John Hayes of Columbus, who faced two counts of voyeurism.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that members of the county Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force were looking for child pornography when they searched Hayes’ home and computer last week. Instead, they found hundreds of videos showing women dressing, nude and, in some cases, having sex.
Authorities said each video was categorized on a hard drive by the location where it had been recorded.
Police said Hayes committed suicide at work Wednesday morning by shooting himself in the head.
