Plus News 24 January 2019 - Missing Girls Found As Branton Butcher Confesses
Eva and Alyssa Krupa-DeDonato have been found alive but in critical condition as police report that local dentist and father of three Lance Cooper, arrested for the alleged kidnapping of the two women and Diana Collins has confessed to the murders of 25 women during questioning.
Jewellery was found belonging to Tiffany Green and Charisma Jones in his wife’s jewellery box and what is believed to be human kidney in a freezer in the kitchen at his home - each victim found had their kidney cut out before death - with the horrific implication that the serial killer may have cannibalised part of his victims or even fed the grotesque ‘trophy’ organs to his family.
It is believed he used a variety of methods to kidnap the young women - most of whom were taken from the Breweries area in a wave of crimes that may stretch back for years.
The two young women rescued by police are currently recieving emergency treatment at St Judes Hospital. Doctors say it is too early to say whether they will survive their injuries, but they are doing everything in their power to ensure the women recover and can be reunited with their family as soon as possible after the horrific ordeal they have endured.
The investigation continues as police search for further evidence but it seems now, finally, the women of Branton can sleep a little easier at night.
