The story of Colleen Stan is horrifying as she suffered greatly during her 7-year captivity at the hands of a man with a s*xual bondage fantasy.
At the same time, it’s a baffling story because it’s hard to understand the extent to which she was brainwashed so she made no move to escape although she had plenty of opportunities to do so.
Colleen Stan, born in December 1956, was a happy and totally ordinary young American girl.
On the day in 1977 that changed her life, she was planning to hitchhike from her native Eugene, Oregon, all the way to California to attend a birthday party.
Millions of Americans have hitchhiked at one point in their lives and Colleen thought herself experienced enough to avoid trouble.
The Nice Family In The Blue Van
As Colleen Stan stood on the side of the road, she refused two offers as the drivers did not seem trustworthy.
When a blue van showed up she was happy to see the driver had his young wife with him plus a baby strapped in the backseat. They seemed a safe bet so Colleen hopped in the van.
The innocent-looking couple were 23-year old Cameron Hooker and his 19-year old wife, Janice. And they had a sick plan.
Cameron had a strong appetite for bondage fantasies and Janice had had enough of beatings and torture. She agreed he could take Colleen as a slave on condition he wouldn’t have actual s*x with her.
Soon enough, Cameron drove the van into a secluded area where he forced a wooden box on Colleen’s head which restricted her movements and did not let her see anything.
She was then driven to Hooker’s house in Red Bluff, California where she would spend the next seven years as a slave and suffer daily abuse. At first, Colleen only had to endure physical violence, but she was not r*ped.
Cameron Hooker tied her to the ceiling by her wrists, then tortured her in the most horrific ways.
She was severely beaten, electrocuted, whipped, and sometimes burned. The couple then had s*x while Colleen was forced to watch.
It wasn’t much later that Cameron started to want more. As he’d promised he would not have penetrative s*x with the slave he’d r*pe her using various implements and sometimes forced her to perform oral s*x on him.
Locked In A Box
Life in the basement dungeon was bad enough, but things took a turn for the worse for Colleen when the Hookers had to move into a mobile home. As there was little space, Colleen was locked in a box under the couple’s water bed.
She was forced to lie in the box motionless for 23 hours a day with little air and a bedpan for physiological necessities which she had to position under herself using her feet.
