At about 6am on Sunday Tim Estes Sr. said he found two ladies who needed help at a Speedway station in Middletown, Ohio. One was scratched and the other had bruises on her face and arms. The women told Estes Sr. their boyfriend had beaten them up. "I'm from southern Missouri, and if you see somebody in need, you let them in your house and you help them," he said.
Feeling sorry for the women, Estes Sr. said he took the pair to Kroger, bought some food to cook and took them back to his home.
He said he passed out after breakfast. The women might have drugged him, he said, and he told police he didn't remember many of the details. But he did recall both women offered to have sex with him, and one of their names was Cammi.
"Sex would be the furthest thing from my mind," Estes Sr. said. "I felt sorry for them. Look what it got me."
His son, Tim Estes Jr., came home and woke him up on Sunday afternoon. Estes Sr. was sleeping in bed, wearing no pants. Both Estes Sr. and his son said that was unusual, because he usually sleeps on the couch.
They told police a laptop was missing, along with an Xbox, PlayStation 3, 14 Playstation games, a cellphone and a set of keys.
The younger Estes' pets were gone, too. One is a full-blooded Siberian husky named Bella, the other a husky/shepherd mix named Bandit.
The cat was also gone, an all-black girl named Midnight. The dogs have since come back home.
As for the women, Estes Sr. gave police a general recollection of what they looked like:
"Cammi" was very skinny, about 5 feet 8 inches, 105 pounds, with brown hair and a tattoo on her neck, possibly a butterfly.
The other woman was heavy-set with thick glasses.
Both said they were from the West Chester area.
"I'd be a lot more cautious (the next time)," Estes Sr. said. "I'm not going to stop helping people, but I won't let them in my house again. It's really sad."
