This Week in Juggalos


Murder suspect threatened others with knife

Days before he was arrested for the stabbing murder of a 17-year-old boy, Weld County court records show Brodie Clayton threatened two women with a 12-inch butcher knife and said, "I am the Grim Reaper and I am doing my work."

Also, Clayton's tattoos indicate he was an avid fan of the band, Insane Clown Posse, a band that is quickly being identified with gang violence among police circles on both coasts.

In court affidavits released this week, police said Clayton, 18, threatened two women in Lochbuie with the knife last week. Early Saturday morning in Frederick, police believe he stabbed and killed Kyle McCune, 17, the son of a Dacono city councilman.

Police say McCune was stabbed in the chest with a large knife about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. He was pronounced dead an hour later at a hospital.

Court records indicate the suspect, Clayton, he had "ICP" tattooed on his left hand and "Hatchet Man" tattooed on his right arm. The "Hatchet Man" symbol is the logo for Insane Clown Posse's record label, Psychopathic Records. Many Insane Clown Posse fans have adopted the "Hatchet Man" symbol with tattoos.

Clayton is in the Weld County Jail on two bonds: $500,000 for a charge of second-degree murder, and $250,000 for the assault charges earlier in the week.Lochbuie police took the report from two women who said Clayton was apparently angry at one of them because she left Clayton's home where he lived with his mother in Lochbuie.

The girlfriend told police Clayton told her, "How about a bullet in the head? How about that?"

He also sat on one woman's car and told her he would puncture a tire with the knife every time she "broke a deal" with him. When the woman walked away, Clayton stabbed one tire with the knife, the report stated.

Earlier in the week, the woman said they'd accused Clayton of using illegal drugs and he became angry. The report stated he hit one of the women and cut the other on the neck with the 12-inch knife. Clayton allegedly told the woman, "I hit an artery, and you are going to bleed to death; the job is not done. I am the Grim Reaper, and I am doing my work."Police have not said whether the knife used to threaten the women was the same knife they believe was used to kill Kyle.

Lochbuie police did not learn of the assaults on the women until Feb. 23, when the women called the station. Officers were unable to locate Clayton at that time, but just 12 hours after the women reported the incident, Kyle was stabbed in a house in Frederick.

Clayton was arrested by Frederick police, who found him hiding in the back yard of the house. Because he allegedly held the women against their will during the confrontation, Lochbuie police arrested Clayton on charges of false imprisonment, assault, criminal mischief, felony menacing and attempted murder.

Clayton's criminal record dates back to menacing and assaults incident from the time he was 14 years old.

Memorial serviceKyle McCune's memorial service is set for 3:30 p.m. today in the Dacono Lion's Club building



Man to serve at least 20 years in prison for rape

A 21-year-old man who identifies himself as an Insane Clown Posse "juggalo" must serve at least 20 years in prison for raping a 13-year-old girl he met at a Sparks skate boarding park, a judge ruled Friday.

Judge Connie Steinheimer of Washoe District Court sentenced Bryson Tyler Lokken to two life sentences for two counts of sexual assault of a child and lewdness with a child.

Jurors in January found Lokken guilty of the charges that stemmed from the May 2 attack in his bedroom in Sparks. Deputy District Attorney Rebecca Druckman said the injuries the girl received related to the rape were the worst she has seen in quite some time.

"Bryson Lokken raped me and took something from me I will never get back, something that was just mine," the now 14-year-old girl said during Friday's sentencing hearing. "I took pride in my virginity.

"...I have felt as if I lost the whole last year of my life," she said. "I can't say what punishment he deserves, but my feeling more than anything is he needs therapy.

"I will never be able to forget it," the girl said. "I pray he gets the help he needs and does not do it to anyone again."

Druckman said the girl had been with some friends at a Sparks skate park when Lokken asked the girl if she wanted to come over to his home and watch a movie.

Once in his bedroom, Lokken raped her. He then followed her home and threatened to harm her if she told anyone what happened. A few days later, she told her parents, who called police.
Druckman said that during a Hot August Nights event, the girl said one of Lokken's friends battered her for "putting my homie in jail for a rape he didn't do." Evidence presented in court also showed that soon after the girl's sexual assault, a relative of the girl became involved in a fist fight with Lokken.

"...Not only was I dealing with the rape but mountains of threats and windows in my home broken," the girl said. "There were rumors from his friends that I wanted it, and I was a liar. Most disappointing of all was losing many friends and my freedom. I wasn't able to go out or attend school because I feared for my safety."

Lokken, who had been working occasional landscaping and janitorial jobs when he was arrested, told authorities he identified himself as a "juggalo" which is a male fan of the rap group Insane Clown Posse.

At the time of the girl's rape, Lokken was on probation for a gross misdemeanor of attempted grand larceny.

ive got one word for all of you. DISCRIMINATION! you all hear the word juggalo and think yep, hes guilty. how about grow the fuck up. thats like sayin oh that guys black he must be guilty. when will you ever learn people are people, we're all equally fucked up one way or another. so, what im tryin to say is the only reason he got convicted guilty is because after people found out what kind of music he listened to they didnt give a fuck if he did it or not. hes a juggalo he must be guilty right? WRONG, if only people werent so thick headed maybe they would have cared to look into the story a little more. i was fifteen when he was arrested, and even then i could see it was all a lie. if only someone cared to stop and listen theyd find that none of the storys even match up. from the police report, the preliminary trial, and his actual trial. her storys all fucked up. but no one cares. it just goes to show you how corrupt our system is. this girl wasnt raped she lied to him about her age made it consentual. even the little girls cousin knows it, she told her but nobody listens. its as plain as the nose on your face that girls lying. how nobody sees it is beyond me. so why dont you check your shit and do some actual research before you write next time. this girls not a rape victim shes a cold hearted murderer and nobody gives a fuck. y?, because the kind of music bryson listened to. its bullshit he'll sit in that cell till hes sixty for a crime he didnt commit, but thats okay right. wrong, GOD knows the truth and shell get her karma.

I am the girl from this article. I am nor a liar nor a murderer. I am a normal 19 year old with goals and ambishions. I am no longer a victim I am a survior. I put this man in prison for the rest of his life to keep him from doing this to another girl. I stood up for myself and I am proud of myself for doing this. You people on the other hand the ones who have harassed me since the incident are weak and I just dont like her. Yall can say and do as you wish. You want to dwell on the past then be my guest. I will not lose an ouch of sleep over you. I am to strong and much to grown up to respond with anget or hate twards you. God does know the truth and bryson will get exactly what he deserves :)

Well said Selina.....And no one has the right to call Selina a liar... you people weren't around her when this happened you didnt see what`this did to her. And as far as him not knowing her age is a lie, I told him her age so he was fully aware. You people need to stop dwelling on the past and realize your friend rapped a little girl. Her story never changed once! I was there since this hole thing started and you people just keep harassing her. It takes a strong person to stand up and do what Selina did. I for one am proud of how she stood up for herself and Im proud of the women she has become. She had the courage to face him and make sure he couldn't do this to anyone else. She is a stronger and far better person then any of you could ever hope to be.
