TULSA, Oklahoma -

Sapulpa man Howard Harjo faces felony charges after he admitted to police that he hid cameras in the Sapulpa High School softball locker room.

As investigators try to identify the girls in the video, parents are forced to have a delicate talk with their children.

Sapulpa Public Schools and Sapulpa police say identifying all the girls in the videos allegedly taken by Howard Harjo will be a very long process.

Investigators say the 54-year-old admitted to hiding two cameras in the restrooms of the girls' locker room.

Harjo worked there for four years, so there could be a lot of victims.

"A violation of the worst proportions," said Michael Brose of the Mental Health Association.

Brose said parents who think their daughters may be victims need to stay calm when having that discussion, because kids cue in to emotions.

"They lock in," Brose said. "If they see us losing it, freaking out, they're more likely to follow us right down that trail."

Authorities say the videos show girls nude from the waist down.

Harjo is seen placing the camera and adjusting its angle in some shots.

The case is eerily similar to a Skiatook locker room scandal.

Basketball coach Harry "Noonie" Red Eagle Jr. was caught secretly taping girls undressing in the locker room more than a decade ago.

The discovery led this confrontation with Red Eagle: Our reporter, Lori Fullbright, questioned Red Eagle 12 years ago in a school parking lot after video that was obtained by KOTV showed Red Eagle adjusting the camera to obtain footage of young girls in the locker room.

He denied it to Fullbright, but later pleaded guilty in court.

Victims in the Skiatook case were asking the same questions many girls in Sapulpa now have.

"People need information because people are wondering, 'Well was my child on there, or was I on there or was I not on there?' I think that has to be appropriately communicated," Brose said.
