Michael Jacques

Crimes: Kidnapping, Rape, Murder, Incest, Pedophile

Murderous pedophile Michael Stephen Jacques gets to live until he dies of natural causes. That’s more than can be said of his victim, 12-year-old Brooke Bennett. She died a horrible, cruel, senseless death in 2008 at the hands of Michael Stephen Jacques, her uncle. Yup, her own uncle murdered her — after he drugged her and raped her.

Michael Stephen Jacques of Vermont already had a history of kidnapping and rape. In 1993 he went to trial for kidnapping an 18-year-old girl, raping her, choking her, gagging her and handcuffing her. He was convicted of this violent sexual assault and sent away to prison, but he was released early. Lucky him.

His abbreviated stint in prison didn’t stop Michael POS rapist Jacques from continuing his perverted ways. For 5 years he was able to repeatedly sexually assault a young female relative and other young girls. I’m guessing he used threats of violence to keep them from telling anyone about being raped. Actually that’s not a guess — that’s exactly what he did.

What Michael Stephen Jacques did was to convince his victims that he was part of a fictitious sex ring he named “Breckenridge”. Through emails he would threaten the girls, telling them that their friends and loved ones would be murdered by “Breckenridge” members if they didn’t cooperate with him. It was a ploy that worked extremely well.

In 2008, Michael Stephen Jacques got it into his head that he wanted to rape his young niece, Brooke Bennett. The girl wasn’t easily accessible, however, so the pedo perv rapist hatched a heinous, evil plot to get her. In fact, he spent an entire month figuring out how to do it.

He first convinced the young relative he’d been raping for 5 years that “Breckenridge” members had decided to kidnap and rape Brooke Bennett. To make his point that he was f*cking serious, he killed a dog and hung its carcass in her cellar. I guess he made his point. I’m sure the girl feared for her own and her family members’ lives.

The young girl agreed to help Michael shitstain Jacques to lure Brooke Bennett to his home. On June 25, 2008, Michael Jacques drove with the girl around Randolph, Vermont, in his truck. They were on the trail of poor Brooke. They found her walking down a road and stopped to talk. The girl convinced Brooke that they were going to a pool party and a boy Brooke really liked would be there.

Brooke BennettBrooke Bennett trustingly got into the truck to go to the pool party. I’m sure she was so excited by the prospect of having fun with her friends at the party. She was driven to Michael Jacques’ house. The other young girl was told to leave so she left.

I can’t imagine what that poor kid went through, having to choose between keeping herself and her loved ones safe and saving Brooke Bennett from being gang raped by the “Breckenridge” members. I’m sure she had no idea that murder was on the agenda.

With his unwilling accomplice gone, the pedo perv rapist Michael Stephen Jacques took Brooke upstairs. That’s where the poor girl met her awful fate.

Michael Stephen Jacques drugged and raped his young niece, and then he murdered her. Brooke Bennett was strangled and smothered with a plastic bag.

The killer hid his victim’s body in some woods a mile from his house in East Randolph. And to cover his tracks, he manipulated emails and Brooke’s MySpace page to make it look like she’d run away.

On June 26, 2008, an Amber Alert was triggered by Brooke’s disappearance. A massive search took place in central Vermont.

Signs for BrookeAuthorities soon uncovered the pervy uncle’s criminal past and they discovered evidence of the repeated sexual assaults on his young female relative. The girl had found the courage to tell the police that Michael Jacques had been forcing her to perform sex acts weekly since she was about 9 years old.

Authorities also found Michael Jacques’ stash of child porn.

On July 29, 2008 investigators threw the evil bastard’s pasty ass in jail.

On July 2, 2008 Brooke’s body was found covered in dirt in the woods. RIP Brooke Bennett.

Michael the evil hellbeast Jacques was indicted on the count of kidnapping with death resulting, and 4 counts for the child pornography. He pled not guilty.

Michael Stephen Jacques must’ve been sweating bullets. He did the crime but didn’t want to do the time. And so the evil bastard got busy trying to set up a way out of his legal troubles.

What Michael Stephen Jacques did was write a bunch of letters under assumed names to point the finger of blame at the fictitious “Breckenridge” gang. He then sent messages to people in other states asking them to distribute the letters. That was a mistake.

One of his “friends” told the FBI about the murderer’s plan. That got federal prosecutors really, really interested in the case. By sending those emails in an effort to pervert the course of justice, Michael Stephen Jacques had spread his crime across state lines. Oooops.

For those who don’t know, Vermont does not have the death penalty. Federal prosecutors, on the other hand, can demand the death penalty, and on August 25, 2008 that’s exactly what they did.

Unfortunately, having the death penalty on the table caused a whole lot of legal tap dancing that spanned several years. There were motions and delays, and I’m sure waiting years for justice took its toll on the Bennett family.

Michael JacquesIt finally came to a conclusion in August 2013, when Michael Stephen Jacques, 47, agreed to plead guilty to all of the charges and accept a lifetime prison sentence plus an additional 70 years. There will be no chance of release or appeal.

During the court proceedings the pervy pedo killer told the judge that he’s on antidepressants now. Awwww. The poor wee murderer is not happy. Good!

Despite the plea deal there will be a sentencing hearing in Burlington on May 20, 2014. It will be an opportunity for the prosecution to give a complete accounting of the crime. It will also be an opportunity for Brooke’s family to address the court. I hope they manage to make Michael Stephen Jacques even more depressed.

I will endeavour to keep readers posted about the sentencing. Reminders are welcome.

Brooke Bennett was such a lovely girl who did nothing to deserve what happened to her. The world would be so much better off if she were still living and Michael Stephen Jacques were not.

I extend sincerest condolences to the Bennett family. I also wish the best for every one of Michael Stephen Jacques’ victims. May they overcome the pain of all they’d been put through and go on to live happy, contented lives.

Lastly, I wish a long, endless life of suffering and misery for the heartless pedo killer. May he soon regret not having to face the death penalty.


Michael Stephen Jacques was sentenced to life in prison plus 70 years, with no hope of parole.

    Oh those poor girls! And especially Brooke. I hope he is put in population and ass raped to death

  2. Scrappy says:

    Awww, poor Michael, is prison life getting him down? They should stop prescribing anti-depressants and start giving him long, strong cords to cheer him up.

    No, on second thought, I prefer he just spent the next 40 years in jail. Poor little girls, they will suffer for a long time because of him.

  3. moodymagic says:

    The only good thing is this Bastard will never be free again and if he meets his death in prison sooner than later amen and I hope its a real painful death.

  4. BENGALPUSS says:

    The problem is moody, while ever this shite bag is alive, he can kill again, i would much prefer him on death row, where i know that he can’t be let out, like when the prisons get over crowded, if he’s dead then he can’t hurt any more children. Brooke was a beautiful girl full of promise and our future, and that bastard killed her, he should die for what he did.

  5. 2cute says:

    OMFG this guy is evil! I am glad he will never touch another child, but I shudder to think of how many girls have been hurt by him. R.I.P. Brooke. Such a beautiful girl, and worth a billion times more than the P.O.S. who killed her.

  6. Jessice11 says:

    I’m glad his skinny pasty ass is in jail! Maybe he can finally feel some of the pain he made those innocent young victims go through! Although the thought of him on death row pleases me so does the thought of him being someone’s bitch in jail for the rest of his disgusting life. R.I.P Brooke x

  7. Morticiaa1979 says:

    Vermont would rather he be on death row too….I bet her family would be too……..Her stepdad is also a SO. Ray Gagnon….Hang them all!!!!


    Too bad a vigilante form of Breckingridge couldn’t be formed by the prisoners to exact revenge on him for the tortures he inflicted upon Brooke and his other victims. I’m sure he is segregated from the general prison population for his own protection, but it wouldn’t hurt my feelings if he got a good dose of eye for eye justice thrown his way. He should have to live the rest of his life experiencing the overwhelming terror he put his victims through. He should have to live the rest of his life wondering if his next breath will be his last.

    My heart goes out to Brooke’s family and I wish them nothing but the best. To all the victims of this monster, I hope your able to move on with your lives and achieve all of your hopes, dreams and desires. You deserve the best in life.

    This monster is my distant cousin.

    Daughter of,sister of, niece of, cousin of,granddaughter of a pedophile.

    Something is very dark/evil in this family.

    I began wondering if there is something in the genes.
    I don’t know.
    I lean towards learned behavior.

    I too tried to be heard by the state police over 20 years ago.

    Of course, I had no evidence.

    I’m sorry little one.
    So very very sorry.

      I believe I might be related to him as well. I came across this horrible crime when looking for my great Aunt Phoebe/Phebe Jacques’ family history. Her sister was my grandmother, Eva. Do you know anything about his family , mother’s names, brother’s names etc. I am really just trying to put together a family tree. I would appreciate any information. My great Aunt married a James Phineas Jacques in VT, in the central are…Barton and had a son Royce Morton in 1931. Could we be related also???? My name is Terry MacDonald Parks. thank you for any help you can give me.

  10. TimeToFaceFacts says:

    It especially bothers me when teenagers are killed – their enthusiasm, youthful idealism, and boundless energy is snuffed out, leaving the world seemingly more bleak. A tragedy.

  11. Terry MacDonald Parks says:

    I just sent a message to you, I hope it went through. I think we might be related also. My great Aunt Phoebe/Phebe Jacques married a James Phineas Jacques in VT, around the Barton area and had a son Royce Morton Jacques in 1931. Are we related? Do you have any information about Michel Stephens Jacques’ family?

  12. Bengalpuss. says:

    Cleo, I think you meant to put “they threw his pasty arse in jail on June the 29th” instead of July 29th? I know, I don’t miss a trick love.

  13. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Utterly Vile

    Vile also howbody could Advocate ” Legalising ” Incest

    Incest is a Form of Child Abuse as Well

    All States in the United States of America Need to have the Death Penalty
    For Child Abuse including Incest with a Child
