Jeffrey Eisenbath, a religious teacher in Missouri in the US has been arrested after a hidden camera he had installed in the bathroom of an amusement park where he worked fell through the ceiling. After further investigation police also discovered another hidden camera in the school where Eisenbath worked. Since his arrest he is facing three major felony charges of invasion of property, invasion of privacy and possession of child pornography which could result in a pretty hefty prison sentence.
Eisenbath officially worked at a local amusement park but he also volunteered as a religious education teacher at a local church where the second hidden camera was discovered. Police are deeply concerned that Eisenbath has had a long time to commit a range of crimes. Speaking to reporters they said,
“We are trying to backtrack and see if there were any other locations or potential victims, and we’re asking anyone with information to come forward.”
Bizarrely, Eisenbath was caught after the camera he had installed at the amusement park where he worked fell through the ceiling tiles. Workers were puzzled by the machine and removed its memory card and inserted it into a nearby computer.
What they discovered was that Eisenbath had accidentally pressed record on the camera and that the first minute of recorded footage was a glaring closeup of his face as he struggled to insert the camera into a hiding spot.
Damn… that’s pretty stupid.
Both the church and the amusement park where he worked have apologised, with the park saying,
“On behalf of the Adrenaline Zone family, we are deeply saddened by the news of the recent events and their potential negative impact on the community. If true, the alleged events in no way reflect the values and standards we expect among our staff. We reassure that the accused employee has been terminated, and we are continuing to cooperate fully with the authorities on all matters relating to this investigation.”
Meanwhile the archdiocese in charge of the church told reporters,
“We are cooperating fully with the authorities in their investigation and will communicate with those impacted as we continue to learn more about the allegations.”
