Lawsuit claims Hamptons landlord spied on renters by rigging home with multiple cameras
This is not the view they expected with their Hamptons summer rental.
An East Hampton landlord set up a spy-camera system that secretly recorded a family — including three young kids — as they changed, bathed and even lounged in the hot tub, a $4.6 million lawsuit charges.
Now East Hampton police and the Suffolk County DA are investigating what images landlord Donald Torr, of Celebration, Fla., caught on the recordings.
“We’re going through what’s on the tapes from the cameras in the bathrooms and bedrooms,” said a law-enforcement source.
Torr advertised the Winterberry Lane home — in a wooded area near Gardiners Bay — on a Web site as “a sanctuary for relaxation and privacy.”
But the cameras secretly caught all nine family members — including two grandparents, their adult children and three kids, the oldest of whom is 7 — “in the nude. In addition, their bedroom activities were videoed,” the lawsuit said.
