Soccer Coach Arrested
Police said it all started when staff at a local restaurant found a cell phone left behind at one of the tables. When they went through the phone to find a lead on who it belonged to, they instead shockingly found dozens of disturbing photos and videos of underage children.
Staffers called on the phone to police who launched an investigation after examining the media on the phone, which included videos of Campos recording himself “raping unconscious boys between approximately 9 and 17 years old.”
After an initial investigation, police allege that Campos would frequently stop by nearby school playgrounds in Hill Estates and Glass Lane in the downtown Franklin area during his off hours and approach kids to recruit them as players on his team.
After gaining their trust from him, he would then invite them over to his house from him, where he would drug and rape them, authorities claim.
Police did not say when the videos may have been taken or what drug may have been used on the kids.
Campos is currently being held at the Williamson County Criminal Justice Center with a bond set at $525,000, per Associated Press and CNN. It is not clear if he has obtained a lawyer.
The Franklin Police Department said at least ten children have been found on his phone so far and detectives are working to identify the victims.
However, authorities noted the challenges with this as they said the children appeared to be in “such an unconscious state” in the photos and videos that they may not have realized they were victims.
In an update on Twitter on Monday, the department said three of the ten victims have been identified so far and “five more that we didn’t know about have also come forward.”
“We are nowhere close to the end of our review of the evidence in this horrific case,” police added.
