USA TODAY Travel writer Barbara De Lollis has what the outlet touts as an, “Exclusive photo of the modified peephole of Erin Andrews‘ room at the Marriott Nashville.”
This is a never-before-published photograph of the peephole of Room 1051 at the Marriott Nashville at Vanderbilt University through which seven of the eight nude videos of Erin Andrews were shot, according to (Andrews attorney Marshall) Grossman, who provided Hotel Check-In with the photo.
De Lollis reports the peephole from the hallway side of the door can be popped off “in seconds” and fitted with devices for videotaping.
If you examine that particular photo above, you can see scrape marks around the peephole that indicate where Barrett altered it. (Arrows.)
The man who filmed Andrews illegally, Michael David Barrett, has pleaded guilty of interstate stalking and is in a Federal courtroom today for sentencing in the case.
