Police say the man accused of voyeurism after authorities found hundreds of “peeping tom” style videos on his computer has committed suicide.

John Hayes was reportedly found dead by a co-worker yesterday. The 38-year-old was arrested Friday after authorities executing a child pornography search warrant say they found some 15,000 files on his computer, including videos of about 50 local women filmed through their bedroom windows.

Authorities say Hayes’ death ends the investigation of adult victims, but investigators will still look into whether there are any child victims.
