Professor Accused of Spying on Students Found Dead

An NYIT professor accused of spying on students in the bathroom has been found dead days after his arrest.

Law enforcement sources tell News 12 the body of Professor Jackie Conrad was found in his Harlem home last night.

The 39-year-old had been arrested last week after police say a camera was found hidden inside a handicapped stall at the school’s health care center in Old Westbury. more

An autopsy will determine his cause of death, but police suspect he killed himself, according to sources.

Conrad, a professor at New York Institute of Technology, planted a camera disguised as a pen in a handicapped-accessible bathroom at the school’s Old Westbury campus in Nassau County on July 13, according to a criminal complaint. more
