Waterford – A Rhode Island man who was arrested in October for allegedly secretly recording people as they used fitting rooms at the Crystal Mall committed suicide last month in Westerly.
Christopher Gribble, 40, of Bradford, R.I., allegedly attached a small camera or digital recording device similar to an iPod on the top of his sneaker, then stuck his foot under the fitting room doors on Sept. 8 and again on Sept. 29.
He was scheduled to appear in court Monday. Prosecutor Michael E. Kennedy said the case would now be nolled.
Waterford police had released photos of the suspect which led to a positive identification of Gribble and a warrant for his arrest. Gribble had been charged with two counts of voyeurism, two counts of disorderly conduct and risk of injury to a minor.
