A Tennessee soccer coach left his phone behind at a restaurant when workers, who were trying to contact the owner of the device, looked through his phone and found “dozens of unconscionable videos and pictures of children,” authorities said.
After looking through the phone, the Franklin Police Department found “hundreds of disturbing videos and pictures” including videos recorded of him raping “unconscious boys,” Franklin police said in a news release Sunday.
Camilo Hurtado Campos, 63, is being held on allegation of child rape and sexual exploitation of a minor. “Detectives are expected to file several additional charges,” Franklin police said in the release.
Franklin police said at least 10 young children, between the ages of nine and 17 years old, were drugged, raped and filmed by Campos.
“Working with local schools, detectives have identified two of his victims,” Franklin police said. “Police hope that those familiar with Campos can help them put a name with the faces of the remaining victims.”
Detectives said the children in the videos were in “such an unconscious state” that they might not realize they are victims, police said.
Camilo Hurtado Campos recruited players at school playgrounds
Franklin police said Campos has lived in the Franklin area for 20 years. He would recruit children at nearby school playgrounds to play on his team, police said.
“After gaining their trust, Campos invited many of the kids to his home where he drugged and then raped them,” Franklin police said.
The investigation is ongoing as police work to identify the young children.
