A “high councilor” in Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon), Stephen Murdock, has been accused of taking pictures of a woman, Alondra Alcala, while she was in a H&M store in a mall at Opry Mills, Tennessee on Aug. 13.
Alcala told WSMV that Murdock allegedly pretended to be a store employee and “guided” her to a dressing room where things got weird:
From there, I undressed from the waist down, and I looked up and in the corner of the dressing room at the top, there was a camera phone, an iPhone, pointing down at me, so I obviously knew I was being recorded, I freaked out, I froze.
Alcala said she got dressed and tried to get someone to call the police, and noticed Murdock leaving the dressing room next to her.
Alcala said that she noticed that Murdock was deleting pictures from his phone, some of which were of her.
Murdock’s wife reportedly begged Alcala not to call the police after the incident.
