An Alabama man and woman have been arrested for forcing the pole to a bird feeder, as well as a garden hose, into their roommate’s rectum. Yes, they’d all been drinking…but still.
On Tuesday, September 13th, after the Calhoun County Sheriffâ€™s Office learned that a man was hospitalized with severe injuries to his rectum and colon, an investigation was started.
It was on September 3rd that the victim had been drinking on the front porch with 34-year-old Dustin Lee Bragg and 49-year-old Barbie Gordon Vaughn.
The victim then fell off of the porch and onto a bird feeder mounted on a pole. He and the pole-with-a-bird-feeder went tumbling to the ground and into some dog feces. The victim removed his clothes off to clean himself up.
During that time, Mr. Bragg, a registered sex offender previously convicted of raping a 10-year-old girl, and Ms. Vaughn used the metal bird feeder pole and a garden hose to sodomize the victim, causing severe internal injuries.
The victim didn’t get medical attention for six long days. It wasn’t until September 9th that he had a relative take him in to be seen.
The victim and his wife had been homeless and were paying $400 to rent a spare room at the home.
They’d only been in the home for a few days when the incident occurred. The victim’s wife wasn’t home at the time.
While searching the home, investigators found the garden hose with the end cut off, but haven’t recovered the pole.
Both suspects are being held in the Calhoun County Jail on charges of sexual torture.
Their court dates and bonds haven’t been set yet.
Investigators haven’t ruled out additional charges.
The victim remains in the hospital in critical condition.
According to Chief Deputy Matthew Wade, “He may very well die.”
