Locker room videos surface on porn website from South Carolina college; investigation underway

Five separate videos showed female athletes changing and showering in locker rooms. The hidden camera was coming from a sink inside a locker room.

GAFFNEY, S.C. — Limestone College is dealing with a disturbing case in which former female athletes from visiting teams were secretly recorded in a locker room. 

The videos were then found on a pornography website, according to police. The videos were taken between September 2012 and October 2013, according to investigators. 

"Kind of a distant camera angle,  yeah just changing, showering, conversing," said Detective Brian Blanton with the Gaffney Police Department as he spoke with WYFF-TV.

The female athletes were from visiting teams, according to Blanton. Police did not specify which teams. 

Investigators said the hidden camera was on a sink and captured team after team.

"Another university was notified by a concerned parent and that's what kind of got the ball rolling so to speak and I think that university reached out to Limestone," Blanton told WYFF-TV

The videos, between 90-seconds and 3-minutes, were published on Pornhub.

NBC Charlotte reached out to Charlotte-area colleges whose women's teams frequently play at Limestone College and did so during the same time period the videos were taken. 

Queens University and Wingate University said they wouldn't comment. 

A spokesperson for Queens University said, "We’ll let the legal process play out in this matter."

Neither of the schools knew about the investigation. 

Limestone College did release a statement that said in part, "It is unfortunate that an individual or individuals might have violated the terms under which we are gathered as a community at this College."

Police said they do have a person of interest in mind and added that he or she was associated with Limestone College at the time the videos were taken.

Investigators said the videos have been taken down by Pornhub.
