Bodies In A Trunk - The Sequel


Gavilan Hills, CA

Two arrests have been made in connection to the two bodies found stuffed in a trunk in the Lake Matthews area earlier this week.

Omar T. Hutchison, 30 and Brooke M. Rottiers, 26, were arrested on suspicion of murder and are being held in Riverside County Jail.

Ain't they a purty couple? Rottiers, it seems, has some priors for burglary, robbery, forgery and possession. Movin' up in the world, I see. Have fun in Chino.

i know brooke and shes a crazy tweeker her whole life, i knew one day that bitch would do some crazy shit like this. all i can do is laugh about it.

I know Brooke and I know thta she is not capable of doing this. She is a wonderful person inside and out and Omar deserves to rot. He took an innocent young girl and destroyed her mentally and abused her physically. She is in my prayers everyday and I know that God will see her through this. Only he can judge her, not you.

Brooke was a good mother and friend. She had her faults and struggled with the beast of addiction. Brooke had three years clean before she fell weak and started using, and helped many people stay clean, she was funny, smart and a happy person. Don't judge, this could be your sister, friend or daughter. Brooke wouldn't go to that level. If you really know Brooke, you know she could not kill. She wanted the best for her children, she loved them. She is only 28, it make my heart so sad......

I know Omar. He had me around his finger so tight. I always knew he was capable of something horrible. I was scared to leave that man. I finally did. It took hiding to get away, but I did it. I am sorry that Brooke (I don't know her and I won't judge her) didn't get away from her addiction or him.

I happen to know Omar . I am the mother of his son. We were together for 4 1/2 years. I NEVER saw a dangerous or malice side of him ever.We all make poor judgements in life, but it is up to us to make better choices and decisions. As for the GIRL/woman that stated he had her wrapped around his finger, that was your own weaknesses that would allow a man to bring you down. Only you can choose for you and you chose to be with him. So while your saying it took you to break away and hide WHY????? Check yourself. Wher was your self worth or self esteem. Girl D@#K dont get that good!!!! It is unfortuante he/they made this choice. And remember we make the choices that form our lives!!!!!

we need to stop making excuses for what they did! murder is murder, no matter what you are on...meth doesn't cloud your desisions that much to not only murder one person but two. as far as her children go she could not care that much for them to do what she has done. they are now probably better off that they were then.and yes, she might of been a daughter, mother, and a sister, but the two she killed were probably someones son, father, or brother...just remember that!!!

UPDATE:

RIVERSIDE – A Norco prostitute could face the death penalty for allegedly strangling two laborers with a bra in a Corona motel room four years ago.

The trial of Brooke Rottiers and two others is being heard by three juries, one for each defendant, in Riverside Superior Court.

Bodies of the two victims were found by in the trunk of a car abandoned in the Gavilan Hills near Lake Mathews. They were Guatemalan nationals working legally in this country as plasterers.

Prosecutors are seeking no-parole prison terms for co-defendants Omar Hutchinson and Franchune Epps. (INT)

Renee is right about Omar, he is not a dangerous guy. He was very mellow when I knew him at Country Hills Apts. in Corona in the summer of 2006. I have heard stories about Brooke in jail and she is a crazy broad. Omar didn't do these murders, she did.

Anonymous said...

She may be a mother,sister, daughter or whatever, but you forget she is also a MURDERER. So sad for her children and her mother. and even more for the two victims and their families,may justice prevail.

Renee said...

Renee say's.... It's been awhile since my last entry. It is so unfortunate that this is going on...Again I am the mother of Omar's NOW 13 year old son. First off I would like to say, my heart goes out to the families of the victims, Brooks children as well as my own son!!! Yes it is unfortunate that my son does infact know where his father is and why he's there. If it is the case that his father DID infact committ this selfish act, then at this point as harsh as it may seem to some and maybe even logical to others... Omar is the best possible example for his son right now... I say this because it makes my son(with my guidance) aware of what keeping this kind of company can do, and how living that kind of life can affect you and soo many around you that are close to you.Do I in my heart think he was capable of such a crime(I want so badly to think and say NO absolutely not) it has however been awhile since we have seen Omar(2005), So I must honestly be realistic in saying, that I am saddened that his choices in the company that he chose to keep and the life style he chose to live at the time lead him to this place and time in his life right as of now. My son will be fine, although he misses his father...Brookes children will be without their mother, but I, in my heart are certain that due to the unfortunate circumstances they will have strong support system to teach them, guide them, and nuture them as they so well deserve. Do I and am I praying for a positive outcome for Omar...I have to be bias in saying... YES I am. But only GOD above knows and it is only HE that can exhonorate him. Until next time...

Interesting what some people post as their view about these people. Yes, Brooke was a great girl prior to meth. She was a great sister prior to meth. She was a great mother prior to meth. She was a lot of great things prior to meth. Now...she is a meth MESS. Deanna, you think you know Brooke huh? You think she is capable of doing this huh? You have seen her commit this or another crime right? Look at us chomping at the bit to hear the next gossip bit we can about this story. Frankly, why don't we have respect for those whom are not present and let them "hash" this out with whom ever they feel necessary, rather than sit on a site...talk mad $H!* about something we really know nothing about.

I am glad that some people are able to express their feelings! And I believe that they should! This is such a horrific crime that was made and a ton of lives were altered because of this! Obviously you must be related to one of the criminals and not the victims! What about their families?

Anonymous said...

Renee say's...Well, the verdict is in and YES all 3 have been found guilty! I went to visit Omar just a week ago and am truly saddened to know his life has deminished to this... I am a realistic person, right is right and wrong is wrong!!! This is a case of (for Omar) was it all worth it?? His son will unfortunately never see him again and my heart hurts because of this.So what now... our lives have to move forward and unfortunately so do the rest of those that have been affected by this tragic circumstance:( Now if anyone wants to talk shit about what is posted on here because they cant see the forest before the trees with this situation, then I feel sorry for you. My Motto I Live by is... "LIFE IS CHOICE" either you choose to or you choose not to there is no in between, because at the end of the day you have to go either way... They all made a choice NO MATTER WHAT ROLE THEY PLAYED!!!!!My family despite all will ALWAYS love and care for Omar!!!

This is to the victim's family,
I am so sorry to hear of your losses! And for people on here trying to make excuses for what their friends or families have done, it is sad. Their is no excuses that may be said to make up for your losses. Right now these three people can still talk, eat, breath, and see their loved ones and friends. The victims cannot! And the children of the convicted will have sorrow in their lives now and forever! May the victims and their families find peace and closure. And may the children of the convicted find their unanswered questions.
God bless them all

No doubt about it, Meth = Death. I say someone should throw a big meth party in a valley for tweakers and start throwing incinerators bombs in there.

Three separate juries hearing case of murdered men lured to motel for sex

Riverside County Deputy District Attorney Sean Lafferty told jurors in his opening statement that the victims, 22-year Marvin Gabriel and 28-year-old Milton Chavez, met up with Rottiers and Epps at a Highgrove bar the night of Aug. 28, 2006.

Rottiers led the men to believe she would provide sex for money and had them follow her and Epps back to the National Inn in Corona, where they lived with Hutchinson, a small-time drug dealer, according to Lafferty.

Once inside the motel room, Epps pulled a gun and held it on the victims while Rottiers stripped them and stole their money and valuables, he said.

Rottiers, who's over 6 feet tall and weighs more than 200 pounds, beat the 5-foot-2 Chavez, then bound him and Gabriel with electrical cords, phone cords, bras and panties, Lafferty alleged.

Rottiers, known as "Crazy," suffocated the men, stuffing underpants down their throats and taping plastic bags over their heads, the prosecutor alleged, adding that the men were also beaten about the head with a blunt force object.

Their bodies were wrapped in bed sheets, loaded into the trunk of a car that Rottiers allegedly drove to Gavilan Hills, a remote area near Lake Matthews, and left beside a dirt road, where they were discovered by a resident.

Sheriff's detectives surmised the bed sheets and bindings were likely stolen from a motel and initiated their investigation based on that theory.


Lafferty said witnesses were soon identified and all fingers pointed to the defendants.

Ryan Markson, Hutchinson's attorney, said his client was, at most, "an accessory after the fact," and had no hands-on involvement in the crime.

"Rottiers dominates everything," the attorney said. "A robbery was going to occur whether my client was involved or not."


"She did what she did because she didn't want to go back to jail."

Rottiers was convicted of robbery in 2001.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fact:
Omar is only 5'9" and 175 lbs at time of arrest, Brooke was 3+ inches taller and weighed 25+ lbs more than him!

My OPINION:
Like I said and agreed with Renee in my earlier post; Omar is so mellow and doesn't have it in him to be part of this. She must of threatened him if he did not help dispose of the bodies.

this is all very aweful for all parties involved. One thing I have not seen mentioned is the fact that many soules in this case are at stake. The crimes have been done and lives were both lost and affected. We all need to take the time and pray for the soules of all involved.... Nice things were said about all involved and I'm sure everyone at one time or another were good. Rather then post back and forth And fighting please do something productive and Pray.

BROOKE WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH on 10/22/10

Ex-Corona prostitute sentenced to death for torturing, murdering two men

Brooke Marie Rottiers, 30, of Corona, was convicted June 23 of two counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of 22-year Marvin Gabriel and 28-year-old Milton Chavez.

By Staff, City News Service
Friday, October 22, 2010


An ex-prostitute was sentenced to death today for killing two men during a robbery, in what a judge described as a “cold, callous, brutal and particularly cruel” crime.

Brooke Marie Rottiers, 30, of Corona, was convicted June 23 of two counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of 22-year Marvin Gabriel and 28-year-old Milton Chavez.

Jurors also found true a special circumstance allegation that the Aug. 28, 2006, killings were committed during the course of a robbery.

The same jury recommended that Rottiers be executed for the killings — a recommendation that Riverside County Superior Court Judge Helios J. Hernandez affirmed today.

“The defendant’s conduct … included beating, hitting, stomping, hog-tying and asphyxiation,” Hernandez said. “Her actions were cold, callous, brutal and particularly cruel. She went well beyond the minimum necessary to rob and cover her tracks.”

Defense attorney Chris Jensen sought a life term for his client. He argued that the sexual abuse she suffered as a child and her long battle with drug addiction — as well as the needs of her four young children, who are in the custody of family members — weighed against a death sentence.
Hernandez disagreed, saying Rottiers “understood the criminality of her conduct” and “was thinking clearly and purposefully.”

Rottiers’ co-defendants, Omar Tyree Hutchinson, 34, and Franchune Dyuel Epps, 26, were convicted by separate juries of the same charges. Epps was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and Hernandez is expected to impose the same sentence on Hutchinson on Wednesday.

The District Attorney’s Office sought capital punishment for Rottiers because she masterminded the murders.

According to Deputy District Attorney Sean Lafferty, Chavez and Gabriel met Rottiers and Epps while drinking after work at a Highgrove bar.
Rottiers led the day laborers to believe she would have sex for money and had them follow her and Epps back to the National Inn in Corona, where Rottiers lived with Hutchinson, a small-time drug dealer, Lafferty said.
Once inside the motel room, Epps pulled a gun and held it on the victims while Rottiers and Hutchinson stripped them and stole their money and valuables, the prosecutor said.

Rottiers, who is 6 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds, beat the 5-foot-2 Chavez, then bound him and Gabriel with electrical cords, phone cords, bras and panties, according to Lafferty.

The defendant, known as “Crazy,” gagged the men with anything she could get her hands on, according to trial testimony.
“The victims had panties and other cloth items stuffed in their mouths,” the judge said. “Their mouths and noses were covered and taped over.
They were hog-tied with cords around their necks to their hands, which were behind their backs and to their ankles. They asked for mercy. Instead of mercy, she let them suffocate to death while she and her co-defendants ingested drugs.”
Their bodies were wrapped in bed sheets and loaded into the trunk of a car that Rottiers drove to Gavilan Hills — a remote area near Lake Matthews — and abandoned on a dirt road. The car and the men’s remains were found the next day by a resident.

I am shocked to see how many people say Omar was a good person and would never do such a thing. I dont know him personally but speak from experience. Drugs such as meth change your life very quickly, you dont think rationally and will do whatever they think is needed to get by. Yes Omar may have been the greatest most loving caring decent and hinest person alive, but once the drugs took a hold he would have been very vulnerable. If he was such a nice person why did he or the other girl not try to put a stop to the proceedings or leave instead of joining in? As mentioned before everybody is responsible for their own actions so saying brooke forced him to help is a conradiction. I feel so sorry for all involved here, it seems as if a robbery got out of hand at some point, if one victim dies you would have to kill the other to cover your ass? (-thinking like a meth addict here) Its not for us to judge, but I can see some people are just trying to understand, which is natural. I send best wishes to the children of the inmates, and my sincere condolences to the family and children of the victims. And yes interacting with any drug addled person/prostitute is dangerous, but very rarely results in death. ~Stay Safe, and if anyone sees Brooke tell her Alicia sends her love
