Florida police have released a series of chilling images of sleeping women who, unbeknownst to them, may be the victims of sex attacks.
The Windermere Police Department are hoping the public can help them to identify the women, who were all seen in videos they found while searching the home of Darryl Patterson.
Patterson had been accused of attempted sexual assault by two women, prompting police to search his property. Although the search happened in May, police have been unable to identify the women so are now asking the public for help.
During the search they also uncovered a video of Patterson having sex with three women who were unconscious, but it is unclear if these women are the ones featured in that video.
Patterson’s attorney, Leslie Sweet, said in May:
You can have a video showing sexual acts, but you’re not going to know about a lack of consent or whether there was consent unless you talk to the people involved. Darryl Patterson is a regular member of the community. He’s very quiet, he’s self-employed.
Ms Sweet actually stepped down as Patterson’s lawyer shortly after giving the above statement and soon afterward more women came forward with allegations against her former client. According to Local 6, all the victims were drinking with Patterson, then woke up in his bed the next morning with little to no memory of what happened the night before.
Patterson has not been arrested or charged but remains under investigation. Anyone with any information regarding the women is advised to contact Windermere Police.
