A false imprisonment, attempted murder scenario in Racine County has similarities to a case from 2004.
The Racine County District Attorney has issued charges, including attempted homicide and kidnapping, against 32 year-old Wendell Brooks, Jr. of Racine. Brooks, who is still at large and considered armed and dangerous, allegedly targeted a 32 year-old woman acquaintance. According to police reports, Brooks took the woman to a storage facility in Caledonia, where he threatened her at gunpoint and bound her hands and feet.
The woman escaped after Brooks left. Evidence found at the storage unit reportedly included step by step instructions for murdering the woman and placing her body in a container with cement. In the similar 2004 case, Terri Jendusa-Nicolai was kidnapped from her home former husband, beaten and left in a garbage can at an Illinois storage unit. She survived the ordeal and her husband was later convicted on charges of kidnapping and attempted murder.
