Brady Oestrike, 31, beheaded Charles Oppenneer, 25, and killed Brooke Slocum, 18, who was eight months pregnant, in July 2014, researchers said, adding that Oestrike killed himself after a police chase. Oppenneer’s head was never find, Fox 17 reported.
The videos obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request were are available in the working day and hours before the murders. Oestrike had set up four surveillance cameras around his home in the city of Wyoming.
The first video is dated July 5, 2014, the weekend before Oppenneer was killed and Slocum was abducted. The video presents Oestrike hanging ropes from his cellar ceiling and holding a whip. He also strolls by with a chain and padlock and lays out underwear.
Investigators collected at least 400 items from Oestrike’s home, including firearms, ammunition and knives. They also seized electronics and the victims’ possessions.
Emails indicated that Slocum connected with Oestrike through an ad on Craigslist and arranged a sexual encounter in which Oppenneer would be present, according to investigators.
Chief James Carmody has said that Slocum’s boyfriend, Oppenneer, was received decapitated in a park on July 16.
According to police reports, Oestrike held Slocum captive for five days after meeting the couple. Police reports also say Oestrike videotaped most of his assault on the pregnant teen.
After police obtained a search warrant to raid Oestrike’s home, he escaped, triggering a police chase. After crashing his auto, Oestrike killed himself, authorities said.
Police then find Slocum’s body in Oestrike’s trunk. Police say Slocum was strangled that day. Her unborn infant did not survive.
An ex-girlfriend of Oestrike told police he would lock her in a puppy enclosure for up to 10 hours if she disobeyed him, Fox 17 added.
The city of Wyoming is located just southwest of Grand Rapids.
