A television personality known for using hidden cameras in undercover sting operations, is now personally involved in an alleged sex scandal. According to reports, hidden cameras captured American journalist Chris Hansen cheating on his wife. The 52-year-old investigative reporter and host of the popular Dateline NBC series, “To Catch a Predator” has reportedly been having a four-month affair with 30-year-old television reporter, Kristyn Caddell.
National Enquirer cameras captured Hansen during a romantic dinner date at the Ritz-Carlton on June 24th. After dinner, the two went to a liquor store then returned to her Palm Beach apartment around 10:00 P.M. At about 8:00 A.M. the following morning, the two emerged from Caddell’s apartment wearing different clothing. She reportedly then drove Hansen to the airport. The video can be seen here. Hansen has been spending time in Florida investigating the 2006 disappearance of James “Jimmy T” Trindade.
Hansen began reporting on Internet sexual predators in 2004. The series, watched by more than 40 million Americans, brought national attention to the disturbing problem of online predators. Along with watchdog Perverted Justice, more than 250 online predators were ”exposed” since the show’s inception. Hansen also wrote a book “To Catch a Predator: Protecting Your Kids from Online Enemies Already in Your Home.“ Identity thieves and the counterfeit prescription drug trade were also part of Hansen’s investigative work. And his work with child sex trafficking in Cambodia earned him two Emmy Awards. Other awards include four Edward R. Murrow and three Clarion awards.
Christopher Edward Hansen was born on March 26, 1959. He shares two sons with his 53-year-old wife, Mary Joan.
