Excelsior Springs 'Sex Dungeon Suspect' Hit With Murder Charges

An alleged creeper confronts more serious allegations and outright condemnation from law enforcement officials.

Remember that this case earned national attention when the New York Post called the guy's basement a "sex dungeon" and shared most of the nasty deets.

"Today's indictment represents the next step in our pursuit of justice for the victims, the families and our community," said Clay County Prosecutor Zach Thompson. "The physical, psychological and sexual torture described by the defendants surviving victim is brutal and barbaric."

The earlier nine charges stem from allegedly beating, raping and holding a 22-year-old Black woman captive. He was first arrested Oct. 7, 2022 after the woman escaped his basement where she was being held as a "sex slave," as Haslett referred to her, according to court documents.
