According to the incident report, an 18-year-old girl who was Hogan’s neighbor spotted a GoPro camera outside her window as she was getting out of the shower. She told her mother, who then gave the camera to Hogan to examine. The mother knew that Hogan worked in cybersecurity but didn’t appear to suspect him of the crime.
When deputies responded to the initial report of the camera being found, Hogan willingly turned it over to investigators.

The mom then told deputies she remembered finding a small hole cut into a window screen in March but that she didn’t think anything of it at the time. According to a report, the hole appeared to have been cut specifically to position the camera in the corner of the window.
Hogan was later arrested on Peeping Tom charges. It’s unclear how investigators were able to determine that he planted the camera.
The victim’s name has not been released.
