According to the Franklin Police Department, Camilo Hurtado Campos allegedly recorded himself raping boys between the ages of 9 and 17 while they were unconscious. Attacks allegedly occurred over a 20-year span.
Hundreds of videos and pictures, described as disturbing by law enforcement, were found on a phone belonging to Campos, that was left behind in a restaurant on June 22. Staff at the restaurant found the phone and looked at the pictures and videos hoping to find the owner but called the police after the discovery.
Franklin Police Department Lt. Charlie Warner said, “What they found, instead, were dozens of unconscionable videos and pictures.”
According to police, many of the victims were Hispanic. Some of the victims may not have realized they were raped because the images allegedly showed them unconscious. So far, the rapes of at least 10 children have been found on Campos’s phone.
Detectives have identified 3 of the 10 victims we were looking for. Five more whose identities were unknown have also come forward. Police tweeted Monday night, “We are nowhere close to the end of our review of the evidence in this horrific case.”
Authorities arrested 63-year-old Campos on June 23 after his car was spotted in a Cool Springs parking lot. According to police, Campos has lived in two different Franklin neighborhoods over the last 20 years, on Glass Lane in the downtown area and Hill Estates, and allegedly targeted nearby school playgrounds and recruited children to play on his soccer team.
Campos is being held in the Williamson County Criminal Justice Center on a $525,000 bond on charges of Rape of a Child and Sexual Exploitation of a Minor after being accused of grooming the kids and then inviting them to his home where he drugged and raped them.
Authorities expect more charges to be filed.
