A pregnant Michigan teenager was strangled and her boyfriend was decapitated after apparently connecting with a stranger through the online service Craigslist for a sexual encounter, police said Monday.

The police chief in Wyoming, a Grand Rapids suburb, said that 18-year-old Brooke Slocum was held captive before her death. Her body was found Thursday in the trunk of the suspect's car. She was eight months pregnant.

Chief James Carmody says her boyfriend, Charles Oppenneer, 25, was found decapitated in a park a day earlier. His head hasn't been found...

Police got a search warrant for (31-year-old Brady) Oestrike's home, and he fled. He fatally shot himself after crashing his car, after which police found Slocum's body...

Never go looking for sex on line. In fact there are a lot of things that its a bad idea to do online.

He apparently “died of some type of head trauma but that couldn’t be determined because the head hasn’t been found”?

Really?!

I know the chief in Wyoming. My brother in law is one of his buddies from high school. He’s a decent guy.

I should probably be horrified, but I can’t get past the “8-months pregnant and looking for sex online” part.

Not saying this was the case but with the “boyfriend” scheduled to be present at the rendezvous and the craigslist hookup, it could be a pimp and prostitute party gone wrong.

The way I read the story, the male in the relationship was looking for sex online. That is why the first or second poster said, ‘bye bi’.

Likely there was nothing on his body indicating a cause of death. Thus leaving the head as the culprit, so to speak.

It's likely that Oppenneer died of some kind of head trauma, but that couldn't be determined without his head being found, police said.

“8-months pregnant and looking for sex online”.

Evil and stupid people have always existed but because of the internet and television it’s in our face 24/7. Still I simply cannot fathom why anyone who was about to give birth to a blessing from God could ever engage in this kind of activity. How far we truly have fallen.

Guess decapitation doesn't count as head trauma. I suppose he could have been bopped with a hammer, but really... once the scissors have spoken, there's nothing more to say.

In the meantime, apparently there *is* a depravity line that still can't be crossed in this day age without certain death.

How long before this type of third-trimester threesome abomination-perversion is normalized? Glad I don't have cable!

Could be she had already thrown her life away. Pregnant and going around to an annonymus sex romp while being watched by her so called boyfriend. Something tells me the killer was involved in his own version of satanism. Or he could have been a provider of meth. The violence and destruction is overwhelming.

Dad: Strangled pregnant woman ‘wanted love’

Apparently that was not the case, that he was bi-sexual.

Greg Slocum said his daughter would do anything to keep her new family together, “no matter what it took — and she paid the ultimate price for it.”

“Even to meet men on Craigslist to make some money because her boyfriend was manipulative,” he said. “She would put herself through hell just to make sure her family didn’t get divorced.”

He said he found letters that she wrote to her unborn child. In them, she talked about why she met men through Craigslist to have sex.

“She wanted to be loved,” Greg Slocum said.

He had caught her once an warned her of the dangers of meeting strangers for sex, but she was a teen with a mind of her own.

I know what you mean. It’s sort of an “I told you so” moment.

Sorry such horrible things had to happen. May God have mercy on their souls.

But this has the smack of sex-obsession. Of which I am really tiring in this society. Everything is sex.

I mean, screwing someone outside marriage, ending up pregnant, then the illegitimate “couple” looking for more deviant sex.

Yes, this is why I’m against pre-marital sex - can you imagine the life this child would be stuck with? Surprised he wasn’t aborted by mom and dad already, getting in the way of their sex.
