The November 2002 Gilmer County Grand Jury indicted Mr. Messenger for tape-recording a subordinate employee, without her knowledge, in her Robert F. Kidd Library office. According to the indictment, he had secretly recorded the conversations of Eileen Dixon, the Library's long-time secretary, in October 2001. Campus Security Chief Phil Huff was the initial investigating officer and discovered the recording device above ceiling tiles in Dixon's office. Later, the State Police took over the investigation.
