Imagine the sheer terror of being locked away in a basement and no matter how loud you scream, no one can hear you.  Except for your captors. 

Police say that in the late 1980's and early 1990, two brothers made sport out of scouting for young, troubled girls and luring them back to a torture chamber in their suburban Hillsboro, Oregon home.   

The year was 1990 and Andrea Hood had run away from home to try to make it on the streets of Portland.  The sixteen-year-old was a perfect target for Paul Erven Jackson and his brother, Vance Roberts. 

Cops say the brothers picked up Andrea one night in June 1990 and the terror began almost immediately.  Andrea told AMW that Vance picked her up in his pickup truck while Paul hid in the back. 

After sexually assaulting Andrea, she says the men took her back to their home where the torture and rape would continue for three days. 

Andrea recalls that "it was like a house of horrors, like a dungeon..." and she had no reason to believe that she would survive being starved, restrained, sodomized, and tortured in a converted soundproof room. 

However, after three days under the brothers' command, she convinced them to unlock her cuffs.  Andrea noticed a single window which did not have bars on it and she made a break for it -- she broke the window and dove through the jagged glass to freedom. 

Bloody and barely clothed, she ran to a nearby home, begging for help. 

In late 2008, the U.S. Marshals say AMW tipsters brought them some of the hottest leads the case has seen in years.

Another Victim Uncovered

Police say they found chains that were used to restrain the women that Vance and Paul picked up.

One day after Andrea Hood went to the Hillsboro police to tell them of her harrowing ordeal, Vance Roberts and Paul Jackson were arrested and charged. 

On June 3, 1990,  a search warrant was served on Roberts' house and police say they found more evidence that Andrea was not the brothers' only victim. 

On September 11, 1988, a woman we'll call "Michelle"  reported to police in Portland, Oregon that she had been kidnapped, raped, and held in bondage for seven days.  Photographs of Michelle are found by police when they search Roberts' home. 

Michelle tells AMW that she spent most of her time handcuffed and chained at the waist.  She says the brothers repeatedly raped her and she often felt like she was going to die. 

Michelle says that after a week, Paul told her that she was going to be released.  Police say that Michaelle was fitted with a hood, driven back to the place she was picked up, and bizarrely given flowers as they pushed her out out of their vehicle. 

Michelle went to police after she recuperated at a local hospital, but police had few clues to go on until her photos were found at Roberts' home two years later. 

Bail Jumping Brothers

Vance Roberts and Paul Jackson were arrested and charged in both Andrea Hood's case and Michelle's case.  After each arrest, the brothers were bailed out by their mother. 

Court hearings for Roberts and Jackson began on February 1, 1991.  On February 7, the siblings fail to appear in court and warrants are issued for their arrest. 

Police learn that the last time anyone saw the pair was two days prior when they were seen driving away from their Portland, Ore. home. 

A month later, the FBI issued federal warrants for the arrest of Jackson and Roberts. 

When agents search the house for evidence, they find literature on how to change your identity, material to compose a fake ID, and maps of the Northwest.   No one would see either brother for 16 years. 

On September 14, 2006, Vance Roberts walked into the Hillsboro Police Department and surrendered to authorities. 

Roberts has said little about where he has been or if he knows where his brother is.  He's now serving a 108-year prison sentence for his crimes.

But AMW tipsters are doing their part to help tip the scales of justice.

In late 2008, the U.S. Marshals say AMW tipsters brought them some of the hottest leads the case has seen in years. In fact, two tipsters reported seeing Jackson driving the same kind of truck in Phoenix, Ariz.

Both tips claim that Jackson was behind the wheel of a small, white pick-up truck.

The Marshals also say that it's no coincidence the tips are flowing in from Phoenix, because Jackson allegedly has family there.

Authorities hope that they will soon have the other half of this suspected sadistic duo behind bars.
