Modus OperandiEdit

Chad and Andrew abducted Westbrook in an organized fashion. Chad lured in Westbrook by smashing his car repeatedly with a baseball bat and taunting him by coolly smoking a cigarette at his direction. Then, Chad fled, allowing Westbrook to pursue him into a secluded alleyway. There, while Westbrook was distracted by Chad, Andrew shoved a bag over the former's head from behind and subdued him. The two then took Westbrook to an abandoned warehouse, where they threw him into a pit full of shattered glass. Next, Chad tortured Westbrook by throwing bottles at him, shooting at him with a handgun, and spraying him with a powerful hose while he was stripped of his clothes. All the while, Andrew recorded and took photos of the acts (referencing how Westbrook would take photos of his victims and keep them as trophies). Chad later tried to kill Westbrook by shooting him with the same handgun.


The unsubs are two white males who abducted Westbrook because of his previously unknown history as a pedophile. Based on the dates on the photos kept in the apartment where Westbrook would molest his victims, at least one of the unsubs are in their 20s. They are former molestation victims and/or family members who are seeking revenge. When the victims were younger, each of them had run-ins with the law, which is how they came in contact with Westbrook. They have now been carrying the burden of the victimization around for years, and it has affected their ability to find and maintain employment, as well as serious relationships. This mutual trauma would cause the both of them to isolate themselves from others, yet draw them close to one another. Their shared motive of revenge against Westbrook makes them extremely dangerous and volatile, as it is fueled by years of shame, hatred, and anger that has finally exploded to the surface. It is likely something had triggered one, if not both of the unsubs to abduct Westbrook, such as an anniversary or a recent death.
