Feds investigating voyeurism incidents at Grand Canyon park

Posted

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. (AP) — Federal agents are investigating voyeurism incidents at Grand Canyon National Park.

National Park Service special agents with the Investigative Services Branch said they were working to identify potential female victims of surreptitious recordings taken in bathroom facilities in the canyon's backcountry.

In September 2020, park visitors at Phantom Ranch reported that they believed a maintenance worker had recorded them while using a toilet.

Authorities said that worker was subsequently fired and removed from the park.

Additional information about the fired worker wasn't immediately available Wednesday.

Federal authorities said that for the past year, agents have been working to identify the scope of the suspect’s activity.

There is no indication so far that the images were shared or distributed by the suspect, according to authorities, who said the voyeurism incidents remain an active and open criminal matter.
