CLA TEST # 26 DECOMPOSING BODY (Combined Language Assessment) reading comprehension for UN AMS/SAAT Exam

COMBINED LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT
(English) TEST # 26
DECOMPOSING BODY
FIRST PART of CLA (Reading)

PATROL REPORT
At 07:43 hrs. On Friday, 19th July 2013 members of "Club de Pétion-Ville" in Pétion-Ville made a phone call to the Pétion-Ville Police Station complaining of a stinking smell conforming to decomposing bodies. The smell was distinctly dissimilar to the smell coming from the nearby sausage plant.  A team of experts including UNPOL investigators and SWAT was dispatched which reached the location at 07:50 hrs to begin with the search for smelly object and to investigate into the incident. At around 08:05 hrs, the police team, with the assistance of cadaver- smelling dogs, discovered a dead body in a bag wrapped in plastic, covered by a bush, about 150 feet from a garage behind an apartment building in a field.

The investigating police at the scene had difficulty determining the body was female due to the state of advanced decomposition. The Police and the community members continued to search in the abandoned homes which resulted in the discovery of two other female bodies who appeared to have been thrown through one of the windows into the basement of an abandoned house. After two more bodies were found in the Petion-Ville area (bringing the total up to three homicides in a single day), Mayor Gary Norman came to the scene along with representatives from multiple bureaus and organizations. All three victims were found with no ID but were black females. The first discovered was dressed in a green hoodie with a pink and green orchid tattoo on her left thigh. The second woman was wearing a leopard print purple top and the third wore a green jacket and had a pink orchid tattoo on hip. The state of decomposition of the bodies indicated that all three females had been killed within six to ten days.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 1
At 10:15 hrs. the bodies were taken to the local Pétion-Ville hospital for medical examination in order to determine their identity and cause of death. Due to the level of decomposition, the Police contemplated the use of DNA for identification. Three crime scene vehicles and an evidence recovery team arrived to check the open lot and the checking continued until late evening. Evidence technicians analyzed the area for hours but discovered nothing.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 2
The Pétion-Ville County Medical Examiner Thomas Gilson identified the first of the three women as being Angela Deskins believed to be 32-years-old. His office continued the investigation to establish the causes of death and the identities of the other two women. All three victims had the same modus operandi leading back to 35-year-old Michael Madison, a registered sex offender. The MOs of these serial homicides looked very similar to that of convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell who has been serving a 15-year prison sentence since 2005. Police interviewed Ms. Lori Norman, Anthony's girlfriend but retrieved no clues. Police also interviewed Madison's former girl-friend, Emy Fortson, 31 years old, who stated that she felt unsafe shortly after she began dating Madison. When she tried to end the relationship, he threatened her several times by pointing a gun at her head asking if she wanted to die. In one situation, he bound her hands and feet with a tie and a belt, and gagged her with a rag to the point of almost unconsciousness. She choked and her body tingled before she freed herself. She said Madison regularly changed his women and some of them have been reported missing from the neighborhood. She admitted that she felt guilty for not speaking up sooner. Nathenia Crosby, 48 years old, said that Madison was her neighbour who frightened her because of his obsession with her daughter.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 3
Police used warrants to search the garage and the apartment across the alley around Michael Madison's apartment. Around 16:30 hrs. on Saturday, 20th July 2013, the SWAT and investigating police officers got involved in a standoff with a suspect in the homicide of the three females whose bodies were found about 100 to 200 yards apart in Petion-Ville. The suspect was tracked by the Police to his mother's house, located at the corner of E. 197th Street and Saint Martin Boulevard in Pétion-Ville near the Cite Soleil border. The Investigating Team Leader UNPOL Carla Rees used a bullhorn to persuade Michael Madison to surrender but he did not. Finally, after breaking down the door, the Police arrested Madison at 17:00 hours without incident. A bystander at the scene said that Madison seemed to have something on his mind but appeared to still be a normal guy.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 4
UNPOL Investigators and the SWAT officers took Madison in for questioning for his suspected involvement in the Pétion-Ville homicide. Suspicion of Madison's involvement was compounded by the fact that he was a registered sex offender, who had spent time in prison and that the dead bodies were found near his apartment building.

NARRATIVE
Following the Pétion-Ville homicide, Michael Madison, 35, was arrested on Saturday, 20th July 2013 after three female bodies were found nearby the apartment block where he lived.  Madison was located in his mother's home at the corner of E. 197th Street and Saint Martin Boulevard in Pétion-Ville near the Cite Soleil border. After a stand-off with Police he was finally taken into custody.

In his interview, Madison stated that he worked in a nearby sausage factory until 2011. He left the job and became a member of an online dating agency where he publicized that he was a "master" looking for a submissive person to "train". Soon, he began a relationship with Emy Fortson, 31, but this ended after a short period, in 2011, when he found that she was not submissive. Women came in to his life but he was unable to bond with them. He felt scorned and developed a strong feeling of love or hatred against women but continued to contact more women in his role as a "master". 

During this period, he read a book called 'Nobody's Women: The Crimes and Victims of Anthony Sowell' which detailed Sowell's murders and the way he selected his victims. Anthony Sowell was infamously known as the Pétion-Ville Strangler for multiple homicides in 2011 in neighboring Pétion-Ville and after reading the book, Madison became influenced by his modus operandi of using women. He selected more submissive woman such as drug users and those with criminal records, who would come to his home voluntarily. After taking drugs and drinking Madison raped his victims and as a method of denial he strangled them until they choked to death. Once dead, he would wrap the dead bodies in a bin bag and throw them behind the apartment building in a field. He also thought that the nearby sausage plant would hide the odour of the decaying flesh. Madison's story of crime was as predicted by the Police and justice officials.

Madison identified both the women: the one wearing a leopard print purple leotard was 25-year-old Michelle Mason and the other who was wearing a green jacket and had a pink orchid tattoo on her hip was 31-year-old Amelda Hunter. They were both African-American women with a criminal record and a history of drug abuse. Both the women lived outside Pétion-Ville.

Following a court appearance on 21 July 2013, Madison was charged with three counts each of murder, rape and holding people captive. However, Madison pleaded guilty to charges of captivity. UNPOL officers are trying to gather further information to determine whether Madison is associated with other unsolved cases in the Pétion-Ville, Cite Soleil.
DIALOGUE
The following is the conversation between the investigating Police office and suspect, Michael Madison.
Police Officer:  State your name and date of birth for our reference.
Michael Madison: My name is Michael Madison. I was born on 4 February 1978.
Police Officer:  Do you know the reason why you are here?
Michael Madison: I know. I have been arrested for the series of homicides in Pétion-Ville, the killing of three women within a six to ten day period.
Police Officer: Where do you live? Do you have any family members living with you?
Michael Madison: I live at my mother's house located at the corner of E. 197th Street and Saint Martin Boulevard in Pétion-Ville near the Cite Soleil border. I live alone now; my mother is had not been around for the past three (3) months. She has gone on a tour to USA.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees why didn't you surrender when you were asked to?
Michael Madison: I was afraid since I am a registered sex offender with the police. Before I could find a escape route, I was caught.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees Do you have a job?
Michael Madison: Well, I worked in a sausage factory located near my apartment until 2011, but I left that job and became a member of an online dating service, so now I am a trainer for submissive people.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees are you in relationship with anyone?
Michael Madison: No, not now. I had a relationship with a lady named Emy Fortson - a 31-year-old. But that didn't last long since was not submissive. We broke up in 2011. She wasn't the type of person that I wanted. On many occasions, I felt scorned by women and I started developing a feeling of love or hatred towards them. I just liked to use them and throw them.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees What actually led you to commit the series of homicides?
Michael Madison: I had already started hating women. During this time, I read a book - Nobody's Women: The Crimes and Victims of Anthony Sowell. The book detailed Sowell's murders and his method of selection of women and I became influenced by his modus operandi and became his admirer. Although Anthony Sowell is infamously known as the Pétion-Ville Strangler for multiple homicides, I followed his path.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees How did you select the women and make them subject to your hatred?
Michael Madison: I chose woman from the drug users and those with criminal records. They came to me for doses of drugs voluntarily or on my call. After taking drugs or drinking I played with them, raped them and in the event of denial, I strangled them with a tie or belt until they are choked to death. I then wrapped them in plastic bag and threw them out of the window, in the bush behind the apartment building. The smell coming from the sausage plant helped to hide the odour.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees Can you identify the dead bodies?
Michael Madison: Yes, the first one wearing the hoodie and with the tattoo on her right thigh is Angela Deskins, a 32-year-old woman. The one wearing a leopard print purple leotard is 25-year-old Michelle Mason and the other who had a green jacket on and a pink orchid tattoo on her waistline is a 31-year-old Amelda Hunter. All of them are black, African-American women and the latter have a criminal record and a history of drug abuse. Both of them are from outside Pétion-Ville.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees You know that you are a registered sex offender. You are now charged with three counts each of murder, rape and holding people captive. If you had been left on the streets just one day longer, you could have put the lives of other people in danger. You can face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted of the charges of holding a person captive, rape and aggravated murder. Do you have anything to say?
Michael Madison: I feel sorry for the people for the crimes I have committed. I tried to become a good man but my fate wills me otherwise. I plead guilty to charges of captivity. The women came to me voluntarily and I am innocent. Besides that, I have nothing to say.
Police Officer: UNPOL Carla Rees We are gathering information to determine if you can be linked to other unsolved cases in the Pétion-Ville, Cite Soleil. You could face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted of the charges of holding people captive, rape and aggravated murder. You will be sent to the Pétion-Ville County Jail today until the investigation is over.
