Case 146

Brittany Phillips

*** Content Warning: sexual assault ***

When 18-year-old Brittany Phillips enrolled to study at Tulsa Community College in Oklahoma, she was excited to move into her own apartment. With the help of her mother Maggie Zingman, she soon found the perfect place – a one-bedroom apartment in the Glen Eagles housing complex on East 65th Street. 

Brittany and Maggie were close, so it was unusual when a few days passed by without Brittany returning her mother’s phone calls. A friend went to check on Brittany and was surprised to find that her apartment door was unlocked.
