Brooke Marie Bennett (July 12, 1995 - June 25, 2008) disappeared in June 2008, and her body was found one week later. Brooke’s uncle was charged with the kidnapping. According to an affidavit, an unidentified minor told police that Brooke was being groomed by her uncle to join a sex ring called Breckinridge.
On October 1, 2008, her uncle, Michael Jacques, was indicted on charges of kidnapping resulting in murder and five counts of child pornography. After he kidnapped Brooke, he drugged, raped and then strangled her before burying her body in a shallow grave near his home. Jacques was sentenced to life in prison plus 70 years for Brooke's murder.
Another defendant in the case, Brooke’s former stepfather, Ray Gagnon, was charged with obstructing justice in the case. The FBI says he had his roommate in Texas throw out a computer believed to contain child pornography. Gagnon was later sentenced to 16 years and 8 months.
