Couple Secretly Taped Stranger's Sex With Wife, Burbank Cops Say
A married couple lured a man via a dating website to have sex with the wife, which was then secretly videotaped, Burbank police say.
The allegedly freaky crime would only be a misdemeanor - you can't secretly record someone in California without their consent or a warrant - but cops say video they recovered shows other possible
lucky guys victims.
What a duo:
The pair was essentially cited and released, Lt. Darin Ryburn told us. According to Sheriff's inmate data, the arrests came on the morning of Jan. 24.
But cops are just now getting around to the part where they're asking for your help in identifying other men who had sex with this woman, were allegedly videotaped without their knowledge, and are willing to admit it.
The suspects were identified as 40-year-old Curtis James Beck and 26-year-old Erica Joy Beck.
Each suspect was assigned $25,000 bail, according to the Sheriff's info, but it sounds like they might have been released without having to post bond.
Burbank police have been investigating the case for nearly a month, Ryburn said. The unidentified 37-year-old man who said he was secretly taped with another man's wife came forward to cops Dec. 31, according to a Burbank police statement.
The guy met the woman on a dating site - officials wouldn't say which one - and had two separate sexual encounters with her somewhere in Burbank, Ryburn said.
Video recovered by investigators shows a residence and a motel and possibly other victims (perhaps it's not clear if they knew they were being taped). Ryburn:
There is additional evidence indicating other victims on tape. We're trying to find every and all victims.
If you were a victim, or if you think you know someone who was, detectives would like to hear from you: 818-238-3247.
