Brother of mystery woman’s boyfriend defends him, says couple were into ‘kinky sex’ and no abuse happened: Report

The brother of a Texas man who shot himself within days after a mystery woman rang random doorbells in the middle of the night claims that his brother is “no monster.”

ABC reports that Jeff Collins, brother Dennis Ray Collins, the man accused of sexually assaulting a woman and holding her captive before she escaped and rang random peoples’ doorbells for help last Friday, stated that his brother never held the mystery woman. Instead, Collins claims the pair were into “kinky sex.”

“It was just kinky sex, and that was the extent of it. It wasn’t like what people are saying — she was never a captive or being kept in his house against her will. My brother was no monster.”

Authorities in Montgomery, Texas, however, tell a different story.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, allegedly killed himself on Wednesday afternoon inside a Montgomery home, causing fatal injuries. According to Lt. Scott Spencer of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, Collins was previously convicted of attempted sexual assault, second-degree felony, in 2000. He served five years probation.

When officers arrived to Collins’ home in the Sunrise Ranch neighborhood, they found Collins in the back bedroom of the residence with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. Authorities responded to home after Collins’ ex-wife called in for a welfare check and explained that Collins was likely suicidal. She was concerned after Collins reportedly sent her disturbing text messages. She also said she thought the mystery woman was Collins’ girlfriend.

Had Collins been convicted of another sexual assault-related charge, the punishment would have probably increased, according to authorities. Although there is no confirmation that Collins committed suicide in fear of being convicted again, the incident happened shortly after the surveillance video of a mystery woman began trending online, eventually going viral and reaching the masses.

During a press conference on Thursday, Spencer explained that the woman caught on surveillance video said Collins’ was holding her captive while sexually abusing her.

Regardless, Collins blames his brother’s suicide on how people reacted to the situation.

“He killed himself not out of guilt, but because he couldn’t stand his daughter thinking of him that way and because he had been unhappy for a long time,” Collins told ABC. “My brother’s come out looking like a monster in all this but he wasn’t. He was a good man. They were both good people.”

The story continues to develop. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
