An Alabama couple from Calhoun County stands accused of sexually torturing a homeless man with a pole and a garden hose.
Sex offender Dustin Lee Bragg, 34, and Barbie Gordon Vaughn, 49, allegedly inserted the objects into a man’s rectum, causing severe damage to the man’s rectum and colon.
According to AL.com, investigators currently believe the two were drinking with the man on their porch. The victim, who is married, was renting a room from the accused and been doing so for four days.
Apparently, the victim fell off the porch, onto a bird feeder and then on dog excrement. The victim removed his clothes to deal with the feces problem. It is at this point, police say, that Bragg inserted a pole and a hose into the man’s rectum.
Vaughn is said to have watched as this happened.
Bragg has a criminal history. He pleaded guilty in 2004 to rape and sexual abuse of a 10-year-old girl.
After waiting for six days to get medical help, the victim is now in critical condition.
It’s not immediately clear how much time behind bars Bragg and Vaughn might face.
