Dad Sets Up Hidden Cameras To See Why Kids Suddenly Have Bruises, Gets His Worst Fears Confirmed

Steven Corthorn noticed something was amiss with his children.

“There were like bruises and bumps, like missing fingernails and cuts,” he told WDRB.

Corthorn’s wife and the mother of his children, Kendra Beswick, claimed she didn’t know how the children were being injured, so Corthorn decided to secretly install cameras in their Peskin, Indiana, apartment without Beswick’s knowledge.

He didn’t check the video until he grew suspicious in early November. "She quit texting me and telling me how the kids were and that kind of sent up red flag but then I went ahead and went home from work and found out she was going and the kids were gone,” he said. 

Corthorn’s footage allegedly showed Beswick abusing their children. "Then I just started going back through just video footage from that week and I happened upon that click and I said, oh my gosh, I can't believe this is going on," he said.

Cornthorn decided to post the footage online and it caught the attention of local police.

"A big difference in spanking a child and beating a child and I think that anybody can watch this video and probably can say that the mother probably went too far,” said Sgt. Jerry Goodin.

Corthorn is also trying to take full custody of their children after he retrieved them from Beswick. “When I got home to change them into their pajamas I noticed new bruises on them," Corthorn told WHAS11.

Beswick has been charged with two counts of battery on a child under the age of 14 and Corthorn is seeking a divorce.

“It is awful. I have cried many nights because I just felt like I couldn't do anything for my children,” Corthorn said.

“Hopefully they won't remember this when they get older. I hope they won't remember this abuse and it doesn't affect them long term.”
