Joshua Gent, Keisha Baker, Patrick Breen & Stacey Gaffney


Crimes: Kidnapping, Torture, Theft

Hello, dearest readers. Cleo here has been on a short holiday, and just couldn’t muster up the energy or focus to write a story. But now I’m getting back into the swing of things, and I am so grateful to those readers who have been patiently awaiting my return.

And no sooner did I get started researching when I found some sadistic snotbuckets from Adelaide, Australia. They don’t look particularly evil, but they’ve proven themselves to be monstrously brutal shitrags.

Cleo, you say, are you serious? They all resemble decent, ordinary folks. Well, IMHO, Patrick James Breen, Stacey Gaffney, Joshua Anthony Gent and Keira Jane Baker are the rotten, stinking, festering piles of sheep shit kind of hellbeasts who don’t have an ounce of decency among them.

I’ll prove it to you.

Joshua Anthony Gent and Keira Jane Baker have a daughter. On June 16, 2016, they required a babysitter. A 19-year-old girl went to their Elizabeth Park home to look after the little tot.

I’m sure the 19-year-old had no idea that the child’s parents were sick, sadistic nonhumans with criminal records and a history of drug use.

At 12:30 a.m., Joshua Gent and Keira Baker returned home. Did they pay the babysitter and send her on her way? Hell no. See, they were raging mad. They’d heard a rumour that the babysitter had snitched on one of their friends about a stolen car. They decided she needed to be taught a lesson.

And thus began 18 hours of undiluted horror.

The ungodly couple tied up the girl with a dressing gown cord and gagged her with an onion. They tossed her into the trunk of their car and drove to the Munno Para West home of Patrick Breen and Stacey Gaffney.

Uncaring that their little son was in the next room, Patrick Breen and Stacey Gaffney had no quibble with joining in the torture. In fact, Patrick Breen searched the Internet for “how to terrify someone who has been kidnapped”.

I don’t know all of the details of the ensuing events, but I do know that the victim was dragged around and choked with a dog leash, made to bark and eat dog food. She was burnt with a drug pipe, and forced to drink bleach, smoke meth and inhale butane gas. The four hellbeasts threatened to sell her for sex and told her she’d be killed if she refused to cooperate.

The victim was punched repeatedly in the face by Keira Baker, making her fall to the floor. Keira Baker then threatened to cut her fingers off, and brandished various tools. Screwdrivers, brass knuckles, and car jumper cables were used to both terrorize and torture the helpless teenager.

Joshua Gent added his special touch by kicking the victim in the stomach.

The poor babysitter was locked in a bedroom closet for a while, alone with her fears of rape and murder. I can’t imagine the pain she endured from drinking bleach and being beaten and burned.

While the victim was being held, the four fuckwads shopped, bought drugs and looked after their children. They helped themselves to the victim’s phone, bankcard, jewelry, and laptop.

Finally came round 2. When Joshua Gent dragged the victim by her hair into the bedroom, he and the others commenced to punching and kicking her. At this point the babysitter was so terrified she urinated all over herself. She was made to mop up the mess.

At some point, the hellbeasts told the girl where they were going to dump her body in Mt Crawford forest.

The terror only ended because the victim’s housemate told her mother about her fears for her safety. The housemate’s mother wisely notified law enforcement.

At 9:09 pm on June 17 the police tracked down the kidnapping vermin and their victim. The police probably saved a life that day.

Luckily for investigators, the fuckwits had actually recorded the torture! Very convenient that was for the prosecutors.

Patrick Breen, 25, Joshua Gent, 29, and Keira Baker, 28, pled guilty in District Court to aggravated charges of causing serious harm with intent, making threats to kill, and unlawful detention. They each faced up to 25 years in prison for those. And then for theft, they could have gotten an additional 10 years in prison.

At sentencing on September 19, 2017, Judge Jack Costello said the torture was “mindless, cruel and sadistic violence”, and that the victim “has been robbed of her ability to enjoy life”.

Joshua Anthony Gent was sentenced to 15 years 7 months in prison. He was given a non-parole period of 9 years 2 months 1 week. What the hell happened to the 25 years he could’ve gotten? This shitpile had actually been out on a good behaviour bond when he kidnapped and tortured the girl.

Keira Baker cried when she learned her sentence was 10 years 2 weeks 3 days. Her non-parole period is 6 years 2 months. Boo hoo.

Patrick Breen was given a sentence of 6 years 7 months, with a non-parole period of almost 3 years 11 months.

All that was left was Stacey Gaffney. Unlike the others, she wasn’t a drug addict. She had children including a newborn, and she was a nurse. She had had no criminal history.

Apparently Stacey Gaffney took a more passive (but not completely passive) role in the kidnapping and torture of the 19-year-old. I’m sorry, but to me she’s the worst of the bunch. If my friends showed up at my home with a woman they’d kidnapped and planned to torture, maybe kill, I’d be grabbing my children to get the hell out of there, and then I’d be on the phone to police ASAP.

If my boyfriend decided to partake of the torture, I’d be turning his pasty ass in to the police and burning his belongings in a bonfire.

Stacey Gaffney didn’t care that these 3 sadistic monsters were in the same home as her son. She wasn’t brain addled from drugs. With her job she wasn’t financially dependent on her boyfriend. She wasn’t held captive and forced to participate. She didn’t use her nursing training to treat the damage done to their victim. Evil bitch.

Unfortunately, the judge thought otherwise. Maybe because she showed up with her newborn baby. He handed Stacey Gaffney a 14-month suspended sentence. Aaarghh!

At least Stacey Gaffney has lost her job as a carer. I hope she shall never be in a position to be near vulnerable patients ever again.

The victim, now 21, said in her statement to the court, “I find it hard to do day to day activities [such as] going out to public places because I feel like I will see the offenders. The experience has left me with disturbed sleep, overwhelming fear and an inability to enjoy life in a normal way.”

I wish the victim as much support and therapy as she needs to overcome her trauma. She deserves to live a happy, normal life. And kudos to her for having the strength to share her ordeal with investigators.

I hope the children of Patrick Breen and Stacey Gaffney are not going to be raised by this horrific pair. They are a sadistic and soulless couple completely lacking compassion or human decency. They are not the sort of people to be raising helpless children. I truly pray that their children are in a loving, safe, nurturing environment where they can grow up to be decent, caring people.

I also hope the child of Joshua Gent and Keisha Baker is in a good, happy and loving home. I pray that the evil fuckturds never get their paws on him again.

Lastly, I hope that Joshua Gent, Keisha Baker, Patrick Breen and Stacey Gaffney are haunted by the nightmares they put their young victim through. They thoroughly deserve to live in terror.

    These 4 deserved much more as punishment then they got. My heart is with the poor victim. I wish her all the best and truly hope she gets all the help she needs to have a beautiful she deserves.

  2. Tom Daly says:

    I totally agree. In fact, I’d like to think there’s a special place in hell for them but I don’t think Satan would want them.

  3. Rebecca B says:

    This is terrifying, if you are a healthcare worker you take an oth to help anyone that needs it. Definitely not enough punishment for the crimes. I understand I almost never leave my house. I don’t think many people understand the terrible fear these kind of acts leave with you. I hope she has found some kind of peace.

    Welcome back.

    The bunch of them deserve to be whipped in public.

  6. DD says:

    I’m always left horrified by the light sentences Australia and England give for terrible crimes.

  7. Jodie says:

    The Judge in this case stated that this is one of the worst cases seen where the victim was not murdered. How minuscule do I feel right now admitting that yes I am an Aussie. Our system truly sux. I hope and pray the victim can find some peace and a way to cope with the lifelong effect this tragedy will have on her.
