It’s common for sons and daughters of parents who’re in the dating scene to feel protective. It’s a little less common for those sons and daughters to go to any lengths to make sure their parents are with the right person — especially if there’s a suspicion of infidelity.
But in one daughter’s case, she was right to be suspicious — she was just suspicious of the wrong thing.
In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a daughter had lived with her mother and her mother’s live-in boyfriend for seven years, according to the Sun Sentinel. The daughter began to suspect he was cheating on her mom.
She reportedly decided to investigate his “profile,” which was not password protected, on their home’s shared computer for anything out of the ordinary. That’s when she stumbled upon a file.
Instead of a mistress, however, she discovered pictures and videos of herself. In some of them, she could be seen naked, undressing in her own bedroom and a shared bathroom.
She subsequently uncovered hidden cameras in both her bedroom and the bathroom. One was hidden within an electrical socket in a wall and one in an AC adapter, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Investigators reportedly found that the man, 48-year-old Matthew Bordeaux, had more than 2,500 images captured by the hidden cameras dating back to December of 2016.
According to the Sun Sentinel, the victim, whose identity remains anonymous, told police she and her “family” moved not long ago and during that time, Bordeaux gifted her with the wall socket, saying it was “too expensive” to waste.
He reportedly had a memory card inside it which forwarded all images taken by the camera to the home computer.
After investigators discovered the images and media files, Bordeaux was arrested Sunday and charged with video voyeurism. He’s currently being held in Broward County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
Though the daughter found herself the victim of the boyfriend’s disturbing plot, she did, however, manage to protect her mother in the end.
