X-rated evidence removed from murder suspects' home in Killgore investigation
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hundreds
of pages of newly-released court documents give a detailed account of the X-rated
evidence collected during the investigation into the murder of Marine wife
The documents reveal what
investigators found in a Fallbrook home, which was at one time shared by all
three defendants: Louis Perez, 45, his girlfriend Dorothy Maraglino, 37, and
their roommate, Jessica Lynn Lopez, 25.
The court documents include a long
list of sadomasochist sex toys, such as whips, wooden paddles, spiked gloves,
leather restraints, chokers and collars.
Perez, Maraglino, and Lopez have all
pleaded not guilty to murdering 22-year-old Killgore. The marine wife was
described in the search warrant affidavits as "an unwilling participant"
in the trio's sexually deviant behavior, including "bondage, torture, and
master, servant and slave role playing."
According to the court documents,
officers searched the defendants' home where "one room appeared to be set
up as some type of sex dungeon."
The search warrant inventories also
indicate that in the master bedroom of the home on Fallbrook Street detectives recovered a
black ball gag, several ropes, a wooden nightstick with a leather strap, a
black "love pacifier," a black taser, a ninja knife, and a machete in
a green canvass sheath.
Another search warrant reveals that
officers found a copy of "slave rules," along with a copy of a "slave
contract," as well prescription drugs and various types of saws.
In one affidavit, a detective writes
"because of Perez, Maraglino and Lopez's unusual sexual fetishes I believe
they may have accosted Killgore for these reasons."
Brittany Killgore's naked body was
found near Lake Skinner on April 17th, four
days after she was last seen with Perez. Search warrant documents indicate Killgore
had been strangled. She also had injuries indicating someone had tried to
dismember her with a tool, such as a saw.
