Third Suspect in Killgore Murder Connected to S&M

Dorothy Grace Marie Maraglino, 36, was arrested on suspicion of murdering 22-year-old Brittany Killgore, whose body was found in a field near Lake Skinner in Temecula.

UPDATE: Details about the events leading to the murder were added at 7:41 p.m. Saturday.

A woman who was arrested Thursday on suspicion of killing a Fallbrook resident was connected to the other suspects accused of the murder through an alternative, polyamorous relationship.

Dorothy Grace Marie Maraglino, 36, , owned a house that the two other suspects list as their residence, according to the North County Times.

Maraglino also appears in photos with Louis Ray Perez, 45, one of the other suspects. Perez is a Camp Pendleton Marine staff sergeant.

He and fellow suspect Jessica Lynn Lopez, 27, pleaded not guilty to the murder last month.

Law enforcement discovered her at a hotel in San Diego after a failed suicide attempt. Her vehicle in the parking lot has a sticker depicting a woman on all fours wearing a collar and leash, according to 10 News.

Maraglino maintains a page on several websites catering to people interested in an alternative sexual lifestyle, according to CBS8.

She wrote in her bio on one website that she is "an alpha slave to master Ivan. We have a poly home in which I own two slave girls. Life is good." Perez also maintains pages on several sites, and calls himself "Master Ivan."

Maraglino owns the yellow stucco house in Fallbrook both Perez and Lopez list as their homes, though it is now in foreclosure. She bought the house in December 2009, but Bank of America filed a default notice two weeks ago, saying Maraglino owes $12,862, according to the Times.

Maraglino, who goes by the username "twisted2plusyou," appears with Perez in photos on the websites, and writes in her bio that she is the "care giver of the household and manages it according to (Perez's) wishes."

On the same site, she writes the couple was looking for another woman "slave" to add to their relationship.

"We are seeking a sincere submissives, perhaps with the potential of or the heart of a slave," she writes.

Perez, who goes by the username "DI_Ivan_34," maintains a profile on the same website. He states he and his partner were looking for an additional submissive woman for "asphyxiaphilia," caging, kidnapping, "mummification" and various kinds of physical torture.

Killgore rented an apartment less than a mile from the home all three defendants list as their residence. She was married to a Camp Pendleton Marine deployed in Afghanistan, though she filed for divorce three days before she went missing.

The day she disappeared, she was scheduled to go on a dinner cruise with Perez and another woman, but the other woman backed out at the last minute, .

On the night of the murder, Brittany's last communication with anybody was a brief, vague text message sent to a friend asking for help, according to San Diego sheriff's officials.

Appears both women(the suspects along with him) were at some point all together with the victim Brittany. Which means they were all on board to either get her initiated if she wasnt already. The thing that bothers me the most is her phone call to a friend for help, NOT the police, but a friend who could NOT have done anything obviously about her being murdered. This is the most puzzling thing about this case is she did NOT call the Police and she obviously HAD the opportunity to. I believe she had befriended them all, and it could have just been curious about the lifestyle, and had met before, and it got into some rough things which is what they even advertize for. The things they wanted in a partner is as close to murder as you can get without doing it, or doing it accidently. So they either accidently killed her in the process of these fetish acts(and somewhere in there she called a friend for help to get her out of the mess), or they went ahead and killed her because she was putting up a fight and they would be charged, especially the SGT's career ruined. One thing about these people is they do not hide what they do and want, no masks, put the ads on the internet, tell people they meet, so I think Brittany knew all along, maybe just not the extent. Jealousy could have played into it, Brittany very young, beautiful these woman fat and not attractive, and he wanted Brittany as his new queen? I hope women learn from this, and have some dang common sense!

"polyamorous" - Great word Peter! I'm thinking that "amour" was the last thing these wackos were into. This gang of nut jobs were flat "med-evil"! They all need to be locked up for the duration.

@Temeculan: "Polyamory" is well established as a term for consensual nonmonogamy and is in common usage. It was added to the Oxford English Dictionary a couple of years ago. @Brenda: the young woman didn't call the police because she had no reason to believe she was going to die; she may have wanted some help in figuring out whether she wanted to proceed with what was being offered to her. (It's hard to tell without knowing the exact contents of the message, of course.) This is almost certainly a case of a consensual scene gone wrong - quite possibly breath control play, which is riskier than many people realize, with a bad outcome. There's no reason at all to believe that the suspects intended to do harm; panicking and hiding the body was a bad mistake, but a far cry from murder. A tragedy for all concerned. Janet W.

I agree Janet. Except the last part. I believe anyone participating in an act that they know can kill someone is premeditated, maybe not murder 1 in this case, but definately a lesser charge, along with everything else they will be adding on. I would like to see straight up premeditated murder, end of story. Too much of this type of thing goes on and these people serve maybe 4 to 10 years, it was a sex accident. Like the man back east, the college student years ago. I think he did maybe 4 years for the death of a young vibrant person. But then also Brittany made some her own choices, albeit younger in age and less knowledgeable of these "games" then the others. There was a discription of her body however when they found her that said it was rather gruesome murder or appearance and eventually we will find out with the coronors report. It also said that the girl Laura who tried to committ suicide in the hotel room had written a full confession with all details of the murder. Sure we will eventually see that also. It is an interesting case and hopefully opens alot of peoples eyes, especially the young ones into what REALLY goes on in some of these S&M groups, and the seriousness it is to them.

Ms. Hardy (or should I call you Professor Hardy!) ...What about my word, med-evil? Can you call your buddies at Oxford and get it in their dictionary? :)

Wow, is this "Brenda" the Brenda I have exchanged with on other subjects, or is this another person??? This person has built an entire case about these people using "I think" and "I believe" as the qualifier for determining that people should be more educated about the S&M lifestyle. Not only that, but based upon the plural "I think", goes on to suggest that she hopes that especially young eyes might be educated about "what REALY goes on in some of these S&M groups...". Do tell, Brenda... What does go on in these groups? What is it that you are really telling people? Are you Dome or sub? How long have you been in that position, and why don't you just come out and tell us your experiences, and what you have seen? You sound like someone who has spend a lot of time supposing, rather than participating, based on what you have to say. But, your statements have just a little hint of either a fantasy or two or a lot of watching videos and reading books you shouldn't really be reading or watching... lol Really, Brenda... I would like to know what your experiences have been in that lifestyle and how you have come to have this extensive knowledge on the subject. Based on the information I have seen, there is not enough evidence showing that the victim was involved in such activities. I think you and the article are recklessly making a lot of suppositions that are yet to be supported to the extend of your ass-umptions.. Did she have a public profile on those sites?

Nice button LHJ - Your like the "designated" dork...right?
LHJ May 13, 2012 at 08:56 PM
Why, because I point out the obvious and the lack of real information being pushed by ignorance? That makes me a little bit more than a dork. But, you think any way you choose.. The less you think of me and what I know and am able to point out to you, the easier my life is... When little is expected, it only takes a little effort to impress... lol Did it actually take you 12 minutes to come up with that response??

I'm sorry. I refuse to believe that this young woman 'knew' she was about to be used as a 'partner' or 'slave'. I believe they lured her on a false pretense and then when she realized what was going on she cried out for help - probably caught on to what was going on and wanted "out", never realizing she would end up dead or I am sure she would have dialed 911. She told her parents she was taking a dinner cruise. She was dressed for an evening of elegance, which makes sense and points to her thought she was going on a cruise. I believe she was lied to. In those circles, (S & M) its not like the newbies are told all the facts, little by little they indoctrinate newbies into wanting this type of thing by bringing them around their world, slowly introducing items and rituals. Obviously things bad. How or what happened we still do not know. For all we know she could have been a sacrifice offering. No matter what the whole thing is really sick and I feel for her parents and the man that loves her.

Be careful of whom you choose as your friends...you lay down with dogs, you wake up with fleas, sadly, in this case...the "fishes". It is very tragic that this young lady is dead. We do not know ALL of the details, but the few published would totally make me stay far away from the likes of these sick perverts and felons! Stealing weapons from the U.S. Military and for what purpose. She filing for divorce 3 day's prior to her death, something smells.
LHJ May 14, 2012 at 05:43 AM
A lot smells about what is being reported and what possibilities there could have been. Yes, it is tragic the young woman lost her life. Unfortunately, we don't always know what is going on in the minds of those we interact with.. If we were able to read minds, we would be able to protect ourselves much better than we do.. But that is the stuff of fairy tales. The harsh reality is, the victim may not have known the lifestyle of those she fell victim to. If that is the case, it is very truly tragic. However, if it is that she did know and was at some point a willing participant.. It is still a tragedy.. Regardless of the lifestyles, which the media and some "puritans" like to claim is out on the fringes of society (they really aren't based on the fact that even Brenda is an expert on that lifestyle..), taking a life is a crime and is very wrong.. For that, those involved should pay whatever price our society deems appropriate.
Samantha May 14, 2012 at 04:07 PM
The image of this young woman whose life was cut short is etched in my mind. The 'facts' that we have been given leave a lot of room to speculate but eventually we will know the details of what transpired. Regardless of how this situation came to be, I hope that the people who brought this woman to her death are punished to the harshest extent.
temeculan May 14, 2012 at 06:39 PM
LHJ - I have a tip for you partner - If you have nothing to say, it is usually advisable to STFU. Your blog is blather my pedantic friend. And, why have you decided to pick on Brenda? Try picking on me, knot head.
LHJ May 14, 2012 at 07:53 PM
You want an exchange, I have no problem with it.. I guess you are the savior.. of those who make stupid comments, exhibiting both ignorance and a willingness to build a case against someone based purely on supposition.. Go for it ... I'm game... lol You are a real winner.. So, you suggest I STFU, because why? Because it annoys you to see someone make obvious statements rather than worthless ass-umptions? If you don't like it, either get over it or practice what you preach.. BTW and FWIW, I didn't blog.. I commented.. learn the difference..
Amazing Lies May 14, 2012 at 09:40 PM
Is that you John? Why the need for yet another mask behind which to hide? I see you've yet to develop that free-speech idea any further than applying it to yourself..... I thought your posts seemed familiar. Now I know why. You're still using the bludgeon in an attempt to persuade. Nothing changes, does it?
