Pregnant Michigan Teen Strangled, Boyfriend Decapitated

8-month pregnant Brooke Slocum, 18, contacted a guy she met on Craigslist for some sexy times with her and her boyfriend, Charles Oppeneer. Except, times turned decidedly less sexy when the man she went to meet, Brady Oestrike, kidnapped her, strangled her and decapitated her boyfriend. Not necessarily in that order.

Police chief James Carmody says Brooke’s body was found in the trunk of the suspect’s car. The head of her boyfriend is still missing.

Police got a search warrant for Oestrike’s home, and he fled. He fatally shot himself after crashing his car, after which police found Slocum’s body.

Carmody said it has been a “hellish environment” for officers as they investigated the various crime scenes, including Oestrike’s home.

Investigators collected at least 400 items from Oestrike’s home, including firearms, ammunition and knives. They also seized a number of electronics items and possessions from both victims.

Coincidentally, online is also where Brooke met her boyfriend Charles. Which goes to show. Don’t trust anyone you meet online. That’s why every time I meet a girl I found through the internet, I make sure to bring rope and duct tape just in case. At least that’s how I explain it to them.
