An investigation quickly connected the 25-year-old victim to Brady Oestrike, who had set up a cash-for-sex deal with the deceased and his girlfriend on Craigslist.
On July 17, Oestrike fled in his car before authorities could apprehend him. The remains of Oppenneer’s girlfriend, Brooke Slocum, 18 years old and eight months pregnant, were found in a suitcase in the car’s trunk.

A hidden and locked rear entrance, nonfunctioning fire alarm, flammable wall coverings, and extensive candle usage exacerbated concerns.
