Police in Oklahoma have arrested Francisco Gomez and Jimmy Lee Massey for not only torturing and beheading a teenage girl, but for forcing another woman to watch as it happened.

Carina Saunders, was only 19 when she was randomly chosen, kidnapped, tortured, killed, and cut to pieces all to be an example to another woman.

Saunders is believed to have been a completely innocent victim who was chosen at random so Massey and possibly Gomez could show another woman what would happen to her if she failed to do what they say.

The woman forced to watch the horrific acts has not been named in order to protect her, but police say she is 20 years old. The two victims are said to have not known each other. She and others are said to have been forced to cooperate with a human trafficking ring involving prostitution and drug smuggling and selling. Police say she was threatened because she was not “performing to their satisfaction.”

Saunders’ on October 13. Her body had been cut up, put in a duffel bag and left behind a grocery story in the Oklahoma City suburb of Bethany, OK.
