Megan Williams of West Virginia endured unspeakable abuses at the hands of six people. The victim is a black woman and the alleged abductors are all white, including family members.
The police are also looking for two other people involved with the crime. The FBI is looking into if this crime can also be classified as a hate crime.
Megan Williams was held for over a week by her abductors. During that week she was sexually abused, beaten, stabbed, choked, humiliated and her life was threatened.
The woman’s abductors called her the N-word “every time they stabbed her,” Carmen Williams told the Charleston Gazette for a story published Tuesday.
According to Megan she was forced to eat dog and rat feces. Frankie Lee Brewster forced her to lick parts of her body under the threat of death. Her hair was pulled out. She had to drink from the toilet. She had to lick blood. She was sexually assaulted while hot water was poured on her and a man held a knife to her.
A woman allegedly cut Megan Williams’ ankle and said, “That’s what we do to niggers around here.”
Logan County Chief Deputy V.K. Dingess told the paper that the woman underwent surgery for her wounded legs. The police found the woman om Big Creek after receiving an anonymous tip. One woman was at the residence that the police had gotten in the tip. Frankie Brewster was on the porch. She said she was alone but the victim made her way to the door asking for help. Megan is now at Charleston Area Medical Center General Hospital.
As of Monday evening six have been charged with the alleged assault.
Frankie Lee Brewster,49 has been charged with sexual assault, kidnapping, malicious wounding and giving false statements to the police.
Bobby R. Brewster, 24 has been charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and assault during the commission of a felony.
Danny J. Combs, 20 has been charged with sexual assault and malicious wounding.
George A. Messer, 27 has been charged with assault during the commission of a felony and battery.
Karen Burton, 45 has been charged with malicious wounding, battery and assault during the commission of a felony.
Alisha Burton, 23 has been charged with assault during the commission of a felony and battery.
Each is being held at Southwestern Regional Jail on a $100,000 bond.
There are two others that are being sought for this crime. Two people whom Carmen Williams had thought were friends drive her to Frankie Lee Brewster’s house. They allegedly knew that Carmen would be tortured once there. Logan County Chief Deputy V.K. Dingess said Monday evening. “Apparently once they got her there they planned to do this,” Dingess said. Carmen Williams said she has barely left her daughter’s side since police found her Saturday. “She wakes up in the middle of the night screaming, ‘Mommy,’” she said. “What’s really bad is that we don’t know everything they did to her. She is crying all the time.”
Megan Williams endured a horrible crime. It will take a long time for her to get over the tortures she went through. Her mother and father are now by her bedside hoping she is strong enough to get through this.
“We have all been praying and asking the Lord to take us through this,” Carmen Williams said. “It’s hard to deal with it. We are very angry. … She will be scarred for a long time.”
Megan Williams has some “mental issues,” including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, her mother said. “She was always pretty happy,” she said of her daughter. “She wants to be on her own. She is a good person.” Carmen Williams said it will take a long time for her daughter to recover. “People don’t realize that people will call themselves your friends but they are not really your friends,” said Matthew Williams, the woman’s father. “People have to be aware that things like that will happen.”
