Michael David Barrett is the stalker who followed ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews around the country, drilled peep holes and filmed her nude inside the privacy of her hotel room. The FBI has arrested him on charges of interstate stalking.
Agents said they believe Barrett called many hotels to find out where Andrews was staying and requested a hotel room next to hers. Investigators said the eighth video was likely taken at another hotel, which Andrews couldn’t identify.
FBI agents said Barrett also made reservations at a Milwaukee hotel where she stayed in July 2008. They found her door’s peephole similarly rigged, but he didn’t check in at that hotel and the furniture in the room did not match furniture seen on the eighth video.
Barrett tried to sell the videos to TMZ, but an employee there informed Andrews’ attorneys, according to the complaint.
Is it that easy to get information from hotel front desks?
