Six Held In West Virginia Torture Horror

SEPTEMBER 11--A black West Virginia woman was sexually assaulted, stabbed, and tortured while being held captive by her white abductors, one of whom told her, "That's what we do to niggers around here."

The 23-year-old victim was freed Saturday after cops responded to the home of Frankie Brewster for a "welfare check on a female that was reportedly being held against her will." When cops arrived, Brewster claimed she was the only one home, but then the victim limped to the door and said, "Help me."

According to six harrowing criminal complaints, the woman, who apparently had been held for more than a week, had four stab wounds in her left leg, bruised eyes, and had been repeatedly sexually assaulted and humiliated. The woman told police that she was forced to lick Brewster's "toes, vagina, and anal cavity."

Brewster's son Bobby forced the woman to eat dog and rat feces, according to one complaint filed in Logan County Magistrate Court. The victim, who is now hospitalized, was raped at knifepoint, choked with a cable cord, and had her hair pulled and cut during the ordeal.

Police, who have arrested six defendants for their roles in the abduction and attack, are looking for other suspects who may have lured the victim to Brewster's home.

The arrestees are seen in these mug shots. Pictured clockwise from the upper left are Frankie Brewster, 49; Bobby Brewster, 24; Danny Combs, 20; George Messer, 27; Alisha Burton, 22; and Karen Burton, 46. (11 pages)

i think tehre MIGHT be more pressing matters at hand here then where this rat feces came from.... but i can understand where you might be coming from as an animal lover. I, too, have a soft spot for critters (in a completely sane, legal way.)
Is anyone else curious as to how this gang of depraved people apparently left the woman unattended, untied and unconfined, even though this "Frankie" woman was on the porch and saw the police approach? I suppose some will chalk it up to "just redneck stupidity", but in reality, that would be quite a bit over the top stupid. Simple self-preservation should have kicked in. No, I am thinking that the shocking allegations are going to blind people to the fact that there is more to this story then we are hearing. Not saying nothing bad happened, but saying that we aren't hearing all.
The "good old gang mentality". I bet they thought they would never get caught, either. Hope they enjoy their time in prison.
Where did they get rat faeces? From a rat at a guess.
No freaking way is the understatement of the year. I'd have chosen death before licking another woman's anything. As for eating feces of any kind, good luck with making me do anything of the sort. You'd have just had to have killed me. Screw that. And them. Godspeed to the victim.
No freaking way. These jerk lips are outta control. Where did they get rat feces, anyway?
