    Stoddard told FOX 25's Heather Hegedus that she is concerned Hill may have hid other cameras in the house. She and her 17-year-old daughter feel extremely violated.

    Hill owns the Upton duplex and rents one of the sides to Stoddard. She lives there with her daughter and another female roommate. Hill lives on the other side.
