|Rebecca Chandler and Raven "Scarlett" Larrabee|
The 18-year-old American man told police he had met one of the women on the Internet and had traveled to Milwaukee from Phoenix, Arizona, to see her. She and her roommate then held him in an apartment for two days and cut him more than 300 times, he said as stated in a search warrant affidavit signed by Milwaukee County police detective Michael Walisiciwicz.
The two women were identified as Rebecca Chandler, 22, and Raven Larrabee, 20. Both were being held in Milwaukee County Jail. Chandler is being held on $150,000 bail while Larrabee is held on $100,000. Charges are expected to be filed in the next few days, according to a news report.
Police followed a trail of blood to the apartment after the victim called emergency services from a nearby intersection. When police arrived at the apartment, Chandler approached them and said, "I think you are here looking for me," according to the affidavit.
Chandler said she and the man were having consensual sexual relations which involved cutting, but it got out of hand.
Chandler told police that her roommate, whom she called "Scarlett" (Raven Larrabee), did most of the cutting and that she was possibly "involved in satanic or occult activities."
The man suffered wounds to his back, face, arms, legs, and neck and was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa.
In a search of Chandler and Larrabee's apartment, investigators found a large amount of blood on the floor and on bedding, as well as knives, a bloody rope and duct tape fashioned in a manner that appeared to be a restraint. Furthermore, they found books or literature relating to Satanism or the occult, including a book titled "The Necromantic Ritual book," which is incidentally available on Amazon, and a black folder called "Intro to Sigilborne Spirits."
The former book promises to enable a reader to "share consciousness with the Angel of Death." Paperwork seized from the home was described by police as the "7 Pentacles" of planets. Additionally, a black folder was described as an "Intro to Sigilborne Spirits," an apparent reference to "The Sigil-Born," metaphysical entities that are "occultic practitioners" of necromancy, the purported ability to contact the dead.
Well, of course, a lot of these occultic stuff may sound so dire and serious, but so far, I've not seen anything supernatural here, just plain superstition and stupidity.
