One of the men who allegedly saw the ra*pe of Louisiana State University student Madison Brooks said in a video, “These guys are crazy. They are going to ra*pe her.
One of the suspects, Casen Carver, is said to have made the shocking prediction in a selfie video he made from the front seat of the car he, Brooks, and three of his friends got into on January 15.
In the short clip, which was shown in court on Friday, Carver is said to have said, “These guys are crazy. “They’re going to ra*pe her,” Brooks’ mother’s lawyer, Kerry Miller, told Fox News Digital.
Brooks, a 19-year-old college sophomore, was allegedly rap*ed by Kaivon Washington, 18, and Desmond Carter, 17, who is being tried as an adult, in the backseat of a car after the group left Reggie’s bar in East Baton Rouge between 1 and 2 a.m.
Everett Lee, 28, and Carver, 18, saw the alleged assault happen. After that, the group of men dropped Brooks off on the side of a busy four-lane highway when she said she was going to call an Uber.
As soon as Brooks got out of the car, she was hit and k*illed by a rideshare car.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office told The Post that Brooks died from “multiple traumatic injuries 2nd motor vehicle versus pedestrian collision,” which means she died later at the hospital.
Videos, surveillance images, and other evidence from that night have not been made public because they are in the hands of the Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office, which is prosecuting the case.
Miller said that surveillance footage showed that the suspects’ car stayed in the area where Brooks was allegedly rap*ed for about 20 minutes. This was one piece of evidence that was shown in court on Friday.
“The surveillance camera doesn’t really show what’s going on inside the car… “Someone put a T-shirt over one of the back windows so you couldn’t see what was going on in the back seat,” Miller said.
“While the car was parked for 20 minutes in the parking lot, prosecutors showed parts of videos. One of Kaivon (Washington) physically pushing Maddie down in the backseat, pushing her hard.”
Miller says that while the alleged event was happening, loud rap music was playing in the car.
Even though the music was loud, Brooks can be heard on surveillance video yelling “Get off,” Miller said.
The short clip that Carver took showed what was happening in the back seat of the car as well.
“You can see what’s going on in the back seat from the right side of the camera,” said Miller. “There, Kaivon (Washington) is seen pushing Maddie down.
“Then you see Carter on top of Maddie with his pants down. You can sort of see her legs sticking up, and she’s not wearing anything. Desmond Carter wore a plaid shirt, so you know it’s him.
Miller says that after the alleged event, the suspects could be heard cheering.
Carver’s lawyer, Joe Long, told Fox that prosecutors “have not given me that discovery yet; in fact, they have not given me a lot of discovery yet.”
“I don’t have anything else to say because I wasn’t there, haven’t seen the discovery, and don’t work for Desmond Carter,” he said.
Carter’s lawyer said on Friday that his $150,000 bail should be cut to $75,000.
Even though it was lowered to $100,000, it’s not clear if he paid it and got out.
Every suspect has said that they are not guilty.
