The authorities spoke with her friend of the family, Terry Sumner, 55, who “admitted to placing the spy camera in the victim’s home, and that is the camera there for about a year,” according to the press release.

He told law enforcement that he would use a phone app to view and record what has happened in the house, the sheriff’s office said.
