Shelly Andre Brooks (b-January 22, 1969) spent the last 10 free years of his life homeless on the streets or sleeping in his cousins basement.
Between August of 2001 and June 5th, 2006 7 bodies of women are discovered in the Detroit east side. All were black prostitutes, ranged in age from 30-53, with a history of drug abuse, and attacked with rocks, bricks, and table legs. All of the victims were found in abandoned buildings or vacant fields. He left all the victims in a spread eagle position.
Then in July of 2006 a 45 year old prostitute was violently attacked and left to die. But she survived. When she came threw she gave the police a description which matched that of Shelly Brooks plus she identified him as her attacker and he was tall and went by the name “E”. When his DNA was tested it matched to the 7 unsolved murdered women. When Brooks was confronted with the DNA evidence he confessed.
He is in jail for life. Sadly Michigan has no death penalty..
