Mum's Baby Monitor Is 'Hacked' With 'Deep Male Voice' Talking To Tot Through The Camera

Mum's Baby Monitor Is 'Hacked' With 'Deep Male Voice' Talking To Tot Through The Camera

The voice had been talking to baby Freddie for weeks.

Parents Shannon Richardson and Jack Gray have been horrified with the news that their toddler has been spied on for weeks through their baby camera system.

The pair from Banbury, Oxfordshire say their 15-month-old son Freddie has been waking up at 2am every night and refusing to sleep. Little did they know that he had company every night...

The couple were horrified to discover a 'deep male voice' talking to little Freddie through the camera, which was so clear they thought someone was in the house at first.

After discovering the scary fact, father Jack immediately ripped the 'hacked' monitor out of the wall from where it had been positioned to film baby Freddie as he slept. The family immediately threw the device into a skip before running away to Shannon's mum's house.

Young mum Shannon feared the voice could be a "local man" and even since returning home, she only feels safe if Freddie sleeps in bed with her.

Now the care assistant fears that the man could have been watching their son for weeks and even seeing the couple trying to calm him, with images on the monitor showing Jack climbing into the cot to try to soothe his son.

Shannon said: "The sickness, upset and disgust we feel is awful. How long has this creep been watching Freddie's room? We get him changed after bath times and put him to bed in there.

"We don't know how long this has been going on for because, for a while, he'd been waking up at the same time in the night at around 2am and we weren't able to settle him.

"Jack was getting in the cot to try and comfort him. We'd been trying to settle him and nothing would work so we think someone was waking him up.

"But now we've removed the baby monitor, he hasn't been waking up in the night."

Images caught on the monitor show Jack trying to comforting his son in the cot in the middle of the night before they made the chilling discovery.

Shannon said: "It was around 2.30am and me and Jack were watching TV.

"We had the camera on and we heart rustling so we watched it for a minute thinking it was probably Freddie moving around in his cot.

"All of a sudden, we heard this really deep, male voice and it was so clear, we thought he was in the bedroom.

"He was saying 'baby' and 'baba' like he was trying to wake Freddie up. Jack ran upstairs and barged into Freddie's room.

"No one was in there but the monitor moved towards Jack's direction. The voice had come through the monitor. Jack just ripped the monitor out of the wall and picked Freddie up.

"We went into our bedroom and just sat there not knowing what to do. We were in shock. I didn't know what to believe or to think."

Shannon says the man's voice had been so clear that they thought someone was in the house and that the incident has left her feeling scared in her own home.

Shannon said: "Jack threw the monitor in a skip. I didn't want to be in my house, I kept going to my mum's even though the monitor was gone.

"I didn't feel comfortable and I was on edge. I was scared because we didn't know if it was a local man.

"I wasn't comfortable putting Freddie to bed on his own so he was sleeping in my bed with me but I had to eventually put him in his own bed so he didn't get too used to being with me."

Shannon had been given the video baby monitor as a gift while she was pregnant and had been using it ever since Freddie was born,

Shannon said: "I thought it was really handy because when he was in bed, it was nice to be able to see him.

"We've been using it since he was born. Baby monitors are supposed to be a safe thing to watch your baby.

"You would never think that someone else would be watching them through it."
