Daily Mail reports:
Police have released chilling surveillance footage that shows Craigslist killer Brady Oestrike setting up a ‘sex torture dungeon’ where he kept an 18-year-old girl chained for five days before killing her.
Investigators in Wyoming, Michigan, also unveiled more than 100 photos from inside 31-year-old Oestrike’s gun-littered house of horrors on Wednesday and confirmed that video of Brooke Slocum’s gruesome strangling also exists.
On July 12 of 2014, Brady Oestrike kidnapped Slocum – who was eight-months pregnant – after agreeing on Craigslist to meet her and her boyfriend, Charles Oppenneer, 25, for sex.
He then decapitated Oppenneer in the park, handcuffed Slocum and took her back to his home in the early hours of July 13 where he kept her in a dog kennel and sadistically abused her.
In the video, Oestrike is seen preparing a dog kennel, trying out ropes and chains, laying out bowls of water and walking around with handguns in the videos.
Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody revealed that Oestrike, who he described as a gun fetishist, had hoarded whips, swords and bondage tools inside his home.
Police recovered a ‘sex slave contract,’ stuffed toys tied with handcuffs and blood-covered panties.
The contract was written by hand and involved sickening clauses such as ‘I must obey my master’ and ‘pleasure, I must earn it’.
They also found dozens of restraints, ropes, sex toys and cattle prods strewn across his dilapidated home.
In addition they recovered a medieval mask and chainmail gloves, medical gloves and syringes
And in a another disturbing twist, officers who collected evidence from Oestrike’s home found a child’s sippy cup, a baby doll with a noose and suitcases filled with women’s clothing.
But they saw no evidence of any children inside the property.
Police also called in the FBI when they discovered a map of the US hung on Oestrike’s wall – covered from coast to coast in push pins.
Authorities panicked and thought they were dealing with a serial killer, but a former girlfriend told them that the pins represented places where he had stored food in case of the apocalypse.
The disturbing video – which has audio – was recovered from four cameras that Oestrike had set up across his home.
The first dated surveillance footage that police released show him cleaning a room in May 2014, in apparent preparation for a murder and abduction.
It shows the same dog kennel cage that Slocum was imprisoned in and the various chains and restraints that Oestrike used during her torture.
Video that police have said they will never release shows the depraved torture that Oestrike put Slocum through.
One of these videos is time-stamped 11 p.m. on July 12, 2014. This is one hour before he went to meet the Oppenneer and his pregnant girlfriend.
He also walks by with a chain and padlock and lays out underwear.
Slocum is first seen on Oestrikes depraved video being dragged into his Taft Avenue house with handcuffs on at 1am on July 13.
According to the police reports he wrapped a chain around her neck that had been bolted to the bathroom floor and forced her inside a dog cage.
Her arms were then attached to a pulley system suspended from the ceiling – which he could manipulate at will – controlling her like a puppet.
Slocum is then seen to be repeatedly assaulted and forced to smoke marijuana for several days, the documents show.
The video appears to show Oestrike convince Slocum that Oppenneer is still alive before he kills her.
The autopsy carried out on Slocum revealed that her cause of death was strangulation.
The footage is so stark that the Wyoming Police Chief James Carmody called the case ‘one of the most brutal’ he had ever seen.
‘I think it was pure evil from start to finish,’ he added, saying that officers who discovered the torture video had to go through counseling afterwards.
‘It definitely had a profound effect on all of us,’ he said to MLive. ‘It’s very disturbing. There’s no way you can say that you get used to that stuff, because you don’t.’
‘We always try to find a reason for someone acting like this’ he added. ‘Sometimes there isn’t one.’
Until police released the video on Wednesday it was not clear to the public how long Slocum had been held captive.
In one of the released videos, Oestrike is seen walking back-and-forth in a room containing the empty dog kennel.
As he moves things around, ropes can be seen hanging from the ceiling and lying on the floor.
Police apprehended Oestrike on July 17 after a high speed car chase ended with him taking his own life by shooting himself following a crash.
Slocum’s body was found in the trunk of Oestrike’s car inside a suitcase. Her baby who she had already named Audi did not survive.
Oestrike worked as a lineman for a power company.
On July 13, 2014, police said they received a tip from a woman who reported that there was a man in a white mask looking into vehicles near the park where Oestrike had killed Oppenneer.
Around the same time, another person turned in Oppenneer’s wallet that was found on a dirt road near the Gezon Park.
Officials also contacted Oppenneer’s parents.
That same day, police found the empty car that was registered to Oppenneer in the area, according to the unsealed and released documents.
Authorities tried to contact Oppenneer after the vehicle was unmoved for two days.
Police then searched the area near the car on July 15 and smelled a ‘faint odor of decomposition’.
The next day, authorities continued the search and found Oppenneer’s decapitated body in the woods.
His head has still not been found.
Police then obtained search warrants for the couple’s cell phones.
Slocum’s roommate told police that the pair had been posting Craigslist ads for ‘sex for cash’ at the time, according to the recently released documents.
A conversation dated for July 12, 2014, between Slocum and a person identified as ‘Hard Mike’ was discovered by police.
They were planning to meet at Gezon Park for sex, the documents show.
Police were able to link the Craigslist profile to a Gmail account, which led them to a Facebook user by the name of ‘Joat Amos’, who turned out to be Oestrike, according to Fox.
Oestrike was briefly stopped by police on July 17 near his home.
Dashcam video shows him speeding away from police in a yellow car.
He led them on a short pursuit before crashing at Burton Street SW and US-131 and killing himself.
