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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

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?
