Ac­tress Sarah Ed­mond­son claims she and other “slaves” were or­dered to say, “Mas­ter, please brand me, it would be an hon­our,” be­fore they were marked like an­i­mals with a sear­ing hot, laser-like de­vice in a can­delit room. “It was like some­thing out of a hor­ror movie. We were shak­ing,” she says. What re­mains is Keith and Al­li­son’s ini­tials per­ma­nently burnt into the flesh be­low her hip. Her dis­turb­ing tes­ti­mony to the New York Times in Oc­to­ber helped lead pros­e­cu­tors to ar­rest Keith ear­lier this year.
