According to his brother and best friend Chris, Jay Marx was much more than solely a victim of the Hammet cult.
An extremely popular man, Marx worked as a bouncer prior to getting mixed up in this mess. Jay never had problems meeting women, he was personable and attractive, but he wanted something new. He informed his brother that he wanted to experience something he couldn’t find through the traditional methods he had become accustomed to, so he went online and, unbeknownst to him, found members of the cult. He became intimate with them and before he knew it, tragedy struck.
Within the slew of Hammer Cult victim profiles, Jay Marx was one of the least likely to have fallen into this arena. Ex-girlfriends of his have suggested that if he was into something more unusual, all he would have had to have done was to ask them. However, like most that wish to dabble in something taboo, Jay Marx had to seek something more privately established.
At the time of his death, Marx was apprenticing during the day at a small local carpenters. His disappearance was made known to police after having not shown up for work three days running. Although notoriously late, not showing up at all was not something the carpentry company knew Jay Marx a doing. The issue accentuated when he couldn’t be reached by phone or text, another typical habit of this potential filled fatality.
It’s unfair to trivialize the other victims of the Hammet cult, but Scott Marshall, to Remy White was arguably the most devastating participant to have lost.
Taking a very short time to get bites in her line, Remy was spoiled for choice after putting her face and biography on the dating website. Seemingly picky, but willing to date most after approximately a week of email flirting, Remy agreed to meet with Scott Marshall and the two began almost exclusively dating within the cults twisted and eccentric environment.
Each victim of the cult would proclaim that Edgar would not allow any member to fall in love with one of their suppliers. This wasn’t something Remy had planned for, but it became all too real extremely quickly.
Described as dark humoured and easy going, Scott Marshall was an expert in all things dark and horror draped. He enjoyed nothing more than a twisted movie, or like the Saw films are referred to, “torture porn.”
During their brief relationship, both Scott and Remy spent nearly every moment together. His devotion to her was inspiring.
After Scott Marshall passed, Kyp and Brandon trounced his name as a regular reference for what to avoid in handling their “suppliers.”
Laurie Bader was found brutally murdered, with the situation framed as suicide. After coercion and acquired evidence, it was concluded that her life was taken by members of the Hammet cult.
Attracted to become involved wholly by Remy White, Laurie Bader ultimately found herself trapped when she clashed with Edgar. Like other victims, Bader had met Remy through online dating sites and the two had become both close and intimate. As they spent more time together, she is quoted as having complained extensively about Edgar’s domineering behaviour and that Remy should have been in a more senior position.
Frequently she was noted confronting the reclusive cult leader. This was shown to be a tragic mistake.
Miss Bader had a reputation for loathing people. She was perceived as quite butch, despite her appearance contesting that stereotype. It wasn’t uncommon to hear her snap at people for minutia or to deliberately sabotage a situation in order to gain some sadistic pleasure.
Laurie Bader is survived by her four year old daughter and her parents. Her daughter’s father left her before being made aware of the pregnancy and has since attained a degree of custody, shared with the grandparents.
