The Los Angeles Police Department has received 234 police reports from women who say they were sexually abused during gynecological exams by Tyndall when he was working at the student health center.
The case is believed to be the largest sex crimes investigation involving a single person in LAPD history.
Police found the photos after Tyndall drove to a self-storage facility and spent time inside a rental unit, police said.
Detectives are now trying to determine the identifies of the women in the photos and determine if the pictures show patients at campus clinic appointments.
Tyndall insists that his use of a camera during gynecological exams was for legitimate medical purposes, although patients complained about his inappropriate use photography dating back to the 1990s.
USC allowed Tyndall to continue working as the campus gynecologist for 27 years, despite dozens of complaints from colleagues and patients about alleged misconduct during gynecological exams.
When Tyndall was forced out of the clinic in 2016, administrators found a box of photos of patients’ genitals in his office.
USC recently agreed to pay $240 million to settle a proposed class action lawsuit in federal court. At least 65 individual lawsuits are now moving forward, including many cases involving women who accuse Tyndall of inappropriately photographing their genitals and saving the pictures.
One lawsuit was filed by Joanna Massey, a sorority alumna at USC who told her to spread her vagina while he photographed her genitals, claiming he was looking into an “epidemic” of vaginal warts. She said Tyndall told her that he collected photos of other sorority girls’ vaginas.
