WYOMING, MICH. - Wyoming police have closed their two-year investigation into a case known as the Craigslist murders.

Search warrants unsealed Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016, reveal police found bloody clothing, sex toys, numerous weapons and a sex slave contract inside the home of 31-year-old Brady Oestrike.

In July 2014, 25-year-old Charles Oppeneer and 18-year-old Brooke Slocum arranged to have sex with the man they met online. Police identified Oestrike as their killer, tracking him down to his home in Wyoming.
