Shocking Details Emerge As WMP Investigates Grand Haven "Pier Pervert" Terrorizing Local Women

The "Grand Haven Pier Pervert," a man stalking local women in the Grand Haven area, filming them then placing the videos on internet porn sites, says he also likes to "window peep" as well as place hidden cameras in bathrooms, tanning beds, showers, and other public places.

This shocking revelation has Grand Havenders on edge-worried-wondering if hidden cameras may be placed throughout the area...
The profile for "DrDoom666" was deleted almost immediately after press reports this week brought the videos to light.

The profile was not named in the reports, but despite being deleted, a backup version was found in a WMP investigation of the issue...

While technically filming people in public is legal, window peeping and other "interests" described by the perpetrator on his profile are criminal activities and may spur an investigation from the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department, or the Grand Haven Department Of Public Safety.

The man filmed women primarily on the Grand Haven Pier, as well as at the beach. However, videos were posted from spots throughout Grand Haven, including what appeared to be private homes. Their were dozens of videos posted, with hundreds of thousands of hits in total.


As always, WMP believes the public has a right to know what is going on and subsequently, below are screenshots from the assailant.

Hilariously, he asks for privacy on his profile! Mind you, he secretly records women on the internet, but wants HIS privacy respected! Derp... He also says he is a single, middle-class,  college educated Atheist who does not want kids...










According to WOOD TV 8:

"Dozens of videos of apparently unsuspecting beach-goers visiting Grand Haven have surfaced on adult websites.

The videos, which primarily depict women’s backsides, have been posted to multiple free pornographic sites. Some of the footage also shows the subjects’ faces and other intimate areas.

A man claiming to be the photographer posted several of the videos on one site and encouraged viewers to comment. He promised more videos were coming.

The videos were labeled “West Michigan;” many videos showed Grand Haven area landmarks.

24 Hour News 8 has decided not to publish the names of the websites involved so as not to further the photographer’s agenda.

While some people may believe the videos are in poor taste, they are not illegal, prosecutors, police, and attorneys have told 24 Hour News 8.

“On a beach setting, knowingly exposing the parts that you expose to the public, it would be difficult to say that you had an expectation of privacy and without that there can be no criminal liability,” said Randall Levine, managing partner at the Levine & Levine law firm in Kalamazoo. Levine has no connection to the case.

Grand Haven police have responded to complaints about people taking photos on the beach, but never about videos surfacing on the Internet, Public Safety Chief Jeff Hawke told 24 Hour News 8. He said he will have a detective look at the videos."
