Ohio man charged with voyeurism kills self

Published: Wed, September 5, 2012 @ 3:30 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio man committed suicide today, just days after authorities discovered 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 John Hayes, 38, of Columbus, who was arrested last week and charged with two counts of voyeurism. He was free on $1,500 bonds.

The Columbus Dispatch reported today 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 this morning by shooting himself in the head. A co-worker discovered the scene and called police. An investigation continues.

Police had previously asked for women who lived near where the filming occurred or believed they might have been videotaped to come forward to see if they were victims.

John Hayes must have been experiencing some more severe issues that unfortunately, will remain hidden forever...always tragic when someone takes their own life.
