    Captive 'tortured and fed dog food'
    By Amanda Gearing
    April 7, 2004

    A 35-YEAR-OLD man was allegedly held captive, fed dog food and tortured for five years by a sadistic amputee.*

    Steven Richard Pickering, who disappeared in February 1999, was found on a property in Gatton, 100km west of Brisbane.

    Police allege he had been held captive, systematically tortured and whipped with vehicle jumper leads.

    A man and woman have been charged with torture, deprivation of liberty and two counts of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    Gatton CIB and Toowoomba Tactical Crime Squad detectives discovered Mr Pickering during a search of the Gatton property on Monday.

    Acting Superintendent Inspector Gary Wells said police had repeatedly searched a Gatton property over several months but failed to locate Mr Pickering.

    After being found, Mr Pickering made a statement to police and was taken to hospital where he was given medical attention before being released into the care of his family.

    One of the two accused, Stephen Thomas Hamilton, 44, appeared in Toowoomba Magistrate's Court yesterday and was remanded in custody to appear in Gatton Magistrate's Court on April 27.

    Hamilton was charged with deprivation of liberty between February 1999 and April 2004, torture and two counts of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    He has been also charged with unrelated counts of stealing and obstructing police.

    Hamilton is a solidly built man with close-cropped grey hair who uses crutches after losing his lower left leg in a motorcycle accident.

    He wore a black polo shirt, a checked flannelette shirt and jeans when he appeared in court.

    The woman, 35, has not appeared in court and cannot be named.

    The alleged victim is no relation to the two accused, police said.

    Police opposed bail on the grounds of the seriousness of the charges and the threat to other witnesses if Hamilton were released.

    Hamilton's solicitor Tony Kingston, of Toogoolawah, tendered an affidavit to the court stating that Mr Pickering had arrived alone at his legal office in Esk on February 13 this year.

    Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck refused bail.

    someone's been listening to a little to much necro

    "you'll never be found but cops will be searching for weeks
    looking for leaks, hoping somebody speaks
    while your brain is washed and your memory they delete"

    "subjected to torture and kidnapped they need to succumb
    it's proven, I feed em dog food, they prefer human"
