File this one under be careful who you meet on the Internet. Last week, an 18-year-old man from Arizona hopped on a bus to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he planned to meet a girl he had been communicating with online. Little did he know that he'd be in for a huge, potentially-Satanic surprise once he arrived.
The man had been communicating with 22-year-old Rebecca Chandler. Once he made it to town, the teen says that Chandler and her roommate, Raven "Scarlett" Larrabee, 20, stabbed and slashed him 300 times, while holding him captive in their apartment for two days. The violence apparently occurred while the young man was having sexual relations with at least one of the women. The incident is being disturbingly described as a mixture of sex, blood and -- pain.
After apparently being released by the girls, the man called authorities from the street. The Milwaukee Police subsequently began investigating the incident on Sunday night. When they reached the young man, he was bleeding from his neck, arms and back.
Once transported to a hospital, medical personnel estimated the number of wounds at 300. According to a search warrant, Detective Michael Walisiciwicz claims, “He suffered multiple puncture wounds as well as lacerations and slash wounds to his back, face, arms, legs and neck."
Police, though, were in for a surprise. After obtaining the warrant, they went to the girls' apartment and confiscated knives and cutting devices, blood, DNA evidence, duct tape, devices fit for restraining, and "Books or literature relating to Satanism or the occult." Among these items, they found bloody duct tape and a bloody rope, adding fuel to the man's initial story. The Smoking Gun has more:
During a subsequent search of the apartment, investigators seized copies of "The Necromantic Ritual Book” and "The Werewolf’s Guide to Life.” The former book promises to enable a reader to “share consiousness with the Angel of Death.” Paperwork seized from the home was described by police as the “7 Pentacles” of planets. Additionally, a black folder was described as an “Intro to Sigilborne Spirtits,” an apparent reference to “The Sigil-Born,” metaphysical entities that are “occultic practitioners” of necromancy, the purported ability to contact the dead.
When the police arrived at the scene, Chandler said, “I think you are here looking for me.” She went on to claim that both the sex and the stabbings were consensual, but that the situation "got out of hand." She also claims that Larrabee did "the majority of" the stabbing and cutting and she indicated that her roommate may be a dabbler in the occult (as evidenced by the books that were confiscated).
Chandler is being held on $150,000 bond and Larrabee is being held on $100,000 bond in the Milwaukee County jail. The young women haven't been charged yet, but they're being held for suspicion of reckless injury (which is a felony).
This story comes after another disturbing Satanic tale we reported on at the end of October.
