Camera in Soap Dispenser Recorded Women's Teams

New details have emerged in the case involving videos recorded in a locker room at Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C., and subsequently uploaded to an adult website.

According to a report by ABC affiliate WHAS in Louisville, Ky., the camera used to shoot videos of female student-athletes from Louisville's Bellarmine University and four additional visiting women's sports teams in a locker room otherwise designed for men was hidden in a soap dispenser. The video of Bellarmine student-athletes changing and showering after a game at Limestone College was recorded in the early 2010s and has been removed from the website. The five total videos were recorded over a 13-month period, according to investigators, who remain unsure who's responsible for planting the recording device.

A Limestone College Police sergeant filed a police report with the City of Gaffney Police Department on October 10, alerting local authorities to the existence of the videos.

Bellarmine University released the following statement:

"We were recently made aware that, several years ago, a group of Bellarmine student-athletes were filmed without their knowledge or consent in a locker room during an away athletic event at Limestone College. We promptly notified the affected former student-athletes about this distressing incident and made resources available to them. We are angry and horrified that our former student-athletes were the victims of this despicable crime. Because a criminal investigation is currently underway, we must refer you to the Gaffney Police Department in South Carolina for further information."
