A Louisiana trio has been arrested and charged with enslaving and torturing a Minnesota transgender woman for two years, New York Daily News reports:

An assistant town marshal said he found the woman on Saturday night near an intersection in Natchitoches Parish with a logging chain wrapped around her body.

The victim told cops she’d been held against her will and forced to perform sex acts and do hard labor for her captors, KATC reports. She was taken to a local hospital, where she was treated for multiple lacerations and bruises. The logging chain had to be removed by Natchitoches firefighters.

Natchitoches Sheriff Victor Jones Jr. said this was the most “severe and disturbing” human trafficking case he’d ever investigated.

Ambre-tubbsThe three suspects – David Rodriguez Jr. (above), Christina Marie Harper (above), and Ambre Tubbs Lomas (right) – turned themselves in on Wednesday and face multiple charges of human trafficking, aggravated second-degree battery, second-degree kidnapping/false imprisonment, and offenses against computer users. 

Investigators learned that the victim had met Rodriguez and Harper online. She agreed to move into the couple’s home and was promptly forced to hand over her cash and give up her motorcycle. She was then tattooed and registered as a slave on a website.

The victim says she was forced to do a daily list of chores that included sexual acts. In addition, she was required to serve meals, take care of pets, install a swimming pool, and remove fallen trees. If she didn’t comply, she says she was brutally disciplined by Rodriguez, Harper, or Lomas. She claims she was beaten, tased, doused with urine. She also said she had letters carved into her body.

When she told the couple she wanted out of the arrangement, she was allegedly chained in the woods, fed once a day, and given small amounts of water and urine to drink.

The woman is now in protective custody. Two teens who were also living in the home were taken into the custody of the state’s child protective services.

    1) It sounds like she entered this twisted “live in sex slave” situation voluntarily after meeting these people online. The “slave registration” was probably on some BSDM website.

    2) When she asked to leave, then they essentially kidnapped her and chained her up. This was the crime. Not slavery.

  2. Paul R says

    QJ201 is absolutely right. The were obviously cruel and evil people, and they deserve to be punished. But she knew what she was get into (or at least that she was exposing herself to major risk), as evidenced by the story listing all the chores she was “forced” to do—with no indication that she was being held against her will (just punished for not obeying, which is sort of the point with BSDM setups)—then deciding that she wanted out of the arrangement. Clearly she wasn’t tied up while she was installing the pool and removing fallen trees!

    Those teens must have a sweet life.

    “Oh hey, John, how’s it going?”

    “Oh you know, the usual. The 3-some I call my parental unit is pissed off because I tried to help their tranny sex slave catch a wild boar and roast it for dinner, then a bunch of blood…”

    “JOHN!!! What did you just say?? Did I hear you right??”

    “What, about my weird home life?”

    “NO, not that–who gives a crap, we’re in Louisiana. No, what bothers me is that I could have sworn you just used the word ‘tranny.’ How VERY, very dare you!”

    Anybody who felt threatened by that dude could have just taken a safety pin and popped him. He looks like an overfilled balloon. Also, this is the most severe and disturbing human trafficking case the sheriff of Natchitoches has ever seen? Just how many has he seen??

    “When she told the couple she wanted out of the arrangement”

    woaaaa there. That points to it being at first a consensual bdsm thing

    PAUL R, do some research and you’ll see that human trafficking is a very real problem – everywhere. Slavery isn’t just something from the history books. It is alive and well. Educate yourself.

    Makes me sick to see gay men be so transphobic. You’ll get yours, of course.

  6. Moz's says

    @ Mikey m

    how is pointing out that it sounds like it was a consensual bdsm thing in the beginning transphobic?

    no excuse for what eventually occurred, BUT in the beginning she has to accept some blame for entering into such

  7. doug105 says

    Given rabid Christianity that infests Louisiana (like KKK friend and would be Sen. Tony Perkins), the biggest surprise is they didn’t return her to her master’s.

    When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. Exodus 21:20-21

    Hmm this sounds like the plot of some twisted low budget horror movie…next time on Chiller “Hillbilly Tranny Slave!”

    Reality TV show soon to be broadcast? My guess is all this hype is just to get free publicity.
