  • Marilyn Bagley has admitted to keeping a minor as a sex slave
Marilyn Bagley, a 47-year-old from Lebanon, Missouri pleaded guilty today to conspiracy to hold a minor as a sex slave.

According to the superseding indictment filed in federal court, which is one of the most lurid we've ever seen -- ever -- Bagley has admitted to the following narrative.

In December 2002, Marilyn Bagley and her husband Ed found the victim, "FV," who was only 16. She'd been living in foster care homes.

They invited her to run away and live with them in their trailer. They set her up with a bedroom, told her they'd "make her dreams come true."

For the next two years, Marilyn modeled "slave clothes" and showed the teenager some BDSM stuff on the Internet to to groom her.

In August 2004, Marilyn posed in photos where she "sexually tortured FV, including, but not limited to, full vaginal penetration with her fist."

FV expressed fear to Marilyn several times, but Marilyn didn't help her and told her not to upset the husband, "Master Ed."

During this time, by the way, Marilyn had taken FV's birth certificate and social security card.

From 2004 to 2009, Marilyn took money that FV earned by stripping at a local club and used it to buy herself cigarettes, steaks, clothes, food.

The details become more sordid once you consider the case against "Master Ed," but he has not pleaded guilty, and his case is still scheduled for trial at this time.
