Officers executed a search warrant at Boykin’s home and found images and video of the victim on his computer, storage devices and phone.

Detectives believe Boykin had an infatuation with the victim. During the course of the investigation, they also learned that Boykin entered the victim’s Nashville home on multiple occasions during which he is alleged to have taken data from her computers and electronic devices.

Boykin is charged with unlawful photography, aggravated burglary, wiretapping, unlawful telephone recording and two computer crimes.

According to Metro police, the camera was recording while the victim was on her phone in the restroom, resulting in the unlawful telephone recording and wiretapping counts.

Boykin was arrested and booked into the Metro jail Monday. His bond was set at $100,000.
