    MO - Edward Bagley & others for keeping teen as sex slave for 8 years, Lebanon, 2009

    In 2002, Edward Bagley Sr invited a mentally challenged 16 year old who had been in and out of foster homes into his trailer. His hook was that he was going to make her a model and a star.

    The now 24 year old was fed drugs, raped, tortured and sold to at least 4 other men for 8 years. She was tattoed with a bar code indicating she was a slave, forced to sign a slave contract and taken across state lines to pose in pictures depicting sex acts. She was forced to strip in clubs. She was kept in a dog cage, and electrocuted and suffocated by men who traded money, drugs and food for the opportunity to rape and torture her themselves.



    It all came to an end when in Feb 2009, she was taken to the hospital in full cardiac arrest from having been electocuted and suffocated.

    Dear God.

    Bagley was smart-in an evil kind of way. He waited until she was 18 to have her sign the contract and held off on the serious torture until then. So we know that the defense will be it was a consentual relationship. I can already hear the words. The kicker for me is that the men may face as little at 15 years.

    I have never believed in the Devil or Hell. I might be wrong about that. God Bless and Keep this woman close...

    My prayers are with this woman, may she heal somehow! One of these monsters lives very close to my little town, which makes this all too real for me. I just cannot imagine this happening, no matter how much I read here, some lunatic always comes up with a new more vile idea of torture and disgust!

    This is another shocker to me as well... these stories remind me that we have absolutely no idea how the brain functions. I get an instant headache just reading these because my teeny, tiny brain just cannot be wrapped around the sick, sick ideas these perps come up with!

    I pray she can somehow heal emotionally! The body manages to usually heal itself but our minds are an entirely different matter!

    The other defendants in an 11-count indictment released by prosecutors Thursday were Bradley Cook, 31, of St. Louis; Dennis Henry, 50, of Wheatland; Michael Stokes, 62, of Lebanon; and James Noel, 44, of Springfield.

    and now they walk among us free

    OMG, this story is nauseating.

    I'm sorry did it say one of the perps was the postmaster general?

    That poor poor girl. What a horrifying story.

    I'm just left reeling from these details. Anyone who knows me and knows my story can understand how the words bring me to my knees:

    "...Federal prosecutors describe the woman, now 24, as mentally deficient and say that she grew up in foster homes..."

    The most vulnerable of the vulnerable. I have been so saddened to read of the almost continuous flow of arrests in the Kansas City area for child sexual abuse and child pornography. I've followed the Mohler case from the moment it broke which has caused me to focus on that area. Of course, I realize that these crimes occur every where in the world. No spot is immune. I'm wondering, though, if LE in Missouri is not just really cleaning house. While I'm heartbroken for the victims, I'm encouraged by the arrests.

    I've had it explained to me over and over again that even "mentally deficient" (the legal term for someone with an IQ under 69) people have free will. They have the right to consent to sex. What a cruelty that would be if we took away that right. But then I live everyday with the knowledge of what is being done to my "little girl". She too has low self esteem brought about by early neglect and abuse and numerous foster placements until she was adopted by our family at age 6 years. She's now 22 and has an IQ of 63. She's also tattooed and is treated as a slave and coerced into servicing men. She's also transported across state lines.

    What are the answers? My heart breaks for this young woman and the thousands just like her. There are NO services to treat mentally disabled women who choose to break free from this horrible life. Don't they deserve the care and treatment we afford children? Do they truly understand the limits of consent?

    This case reminded me of the young girl from Oregon, who got kidnapped while hitch hiking in CA. I think her story is called 'the girl in the box'.

    From the article:

    The U.S. attorney's office said Henry is the postmaster general in Nevada, Mo., city of about 8,400 people near the Kansas border.

    Among the charges, all five defendants face one count of commercial sex trafficking. If convicted of that charge, the minimum sentence is 15 years in prison without parole, and the maximum penalty if the case involves aggravated sexual abuse is life in prison.


    Sick, sick, sick!! MissIzzy, I have no words. I can only offer prayers for your family. Perhaps as this case unfolds, it can get a prosecutor involved in your daughter's case!

    Sunnie, you are probably referring to Colleen Stan (she insists that her name be public, bless her heart):

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kidnapping_of_Colleen_Stan

    There have been books and a film made about her horrific ordeal and STILL people judge her for not breaking away. It is mind numbing.

    I've wondered if something like this didn't happen to poor Dustin of Canada.

    Nevada, MO is a small town--only about 8600 people. This is the very same town where 17 year old Garrett Mason killed two teen girls in May of last year. Mason was a VERY angry young man and had a "hit list". His first victims were only 14 and 18. Could there be some connection?

    Mason's trial is set for January 2011. More details:

    Wow. The story of the girl in the box was one of the first true crime books I read, and that was probably back in the 70's or early 80's.
    May you dream you are dreaming in a warm soft bed
    and the voices inside you that fill you with dread
    make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
    tonight where you might be laying your head.
    I wish you well.

    I would love to know if this child's foster parents looked for her after she disappeared in 2002.
