If you suspect your partner is cheating and you decide to snoop through his or her things, you're never quite sure what you're going to find. Evidence of an affair? Evidence of something bad that's NOT an affair? Evidence of nothing? How about evidence of something so horrific you immediately dial 911? That's apparently what happened to the boyfriend of 32-year-old Tanai Fortman. Thinking she was cheating on him, her boyfriend snooped through her cellphone and iPad, only to get the shock of his life when he reportedly found sexually explicit videos of his girlfriend -- and a child!
Fortman has been arrested for "illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material" -- which sounds like a fancy way of saying child molestation. And it all happened because her "friend" -- who says they were getting very close before he decided to snoop -- found several 30-second-long videos of Fortman and an unidentified child under the age of 5 in explicit situations.
Says the man:
I can't even describe how it all feels. We were close, we were getting very, very close when all this happened. Turned out she had several videos that she was sending to who knows. I was actually completely enraged. I mean it just made me sick to my stomach. I saw red.
He says he had no doubts about calling police and that's exactly what he did. I can only imagine the sickening feeling in his gut. Can you imagine?! Here you are getting to know someone, someone you think might be The One -- or at the very least be normal -- and instead you find out that person is perpetrating such horrific stuff? It's enough to make you never want to trust anyone again.
I am on the fence about snooping. I think that if you suspect someone of something, it's always best to confront that person and ask questions. If you feel the person isn't being honest or dodging, it's probably better to get out rather than suffer years of being on edge and wondering and not trusting.
But in this case, thank god this man snooped!
Have you ever spied on someone and found something horrible?
