The Sex Chamber

This documentary examines the crimes of David Parker Ray (November 6, 1939 – May 28, 2002), who was charged with kidnapping, raping and torturing women in a small New Mexico town. Ray drugged his victims to erase their memories and kept them chained up in a horrifying torture chamber in his backyard.

David Parker Ray was suspected by police to have murdered as many as 60 people in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, in the years 1950s–March 22, 1999. He is occasionally known as the “Toy-Box Killer”.

Ray was sentenced to 224 years in prison after being convicted of numerous offenses involving the abduction and sexual torture of three young women at his Elephant Butte Lake home. His first trial ended in a hung jury in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico. His trial was then relocated to a small town where he had been raised decades before. He was convicted of his crimes against Angie Montaño, and then admitted his crimes against Cynthia Vigil Jaramillo and another young woman, as part of a plea deal for a light sentence for Ray’s daughter. He died eight months after sentencing, having been held for two and a half years while awaiting trial and re-trial. Hendy, who testified against Ray, received a sentence of 36 years for her role in the crimes.

  1. That was one evil monster! His daughter is guilty of aiding and abetting. At least the world is free of his sick torturing and murdering, but his twisted daughter is still out there. That is a crime in and of it’s self.

  2. “Sex Chamber” is a really bad title. Nobody was having sex in there, it was rape and torture.

  3. Cindy Hendy is living in Hamilton Montana as of today…… Across the street from our elementary school…. As a f*+$ing Violent Sex offender… Have her listed as level 1….. No threat….

  4. The cops referring to the VICTIM as “the prostitute” and questioning her credibility makes me sick. What a terrible documentary. I’ll just read the Wikipedia page. No thank you

  5. What an evil, demonized, wicked and soulless individual.
    Unless he had repented and received Jesus Christ into his life, his living the ultimate torture that will never end. And the pain will never ever stop.

  6. I remember a lady telling me about how she was kept tied to that chain, locked. Tortured , being raped. Then parker would tell others before her, that when he gets tired of using them, they go to the toy box. He would murder them, open them up, cement poured into them, taken to the lake to dump. Catfish got so huge, that divers refused to go into the lake to look anymore. But he was a ranger, so no one suspected him doing this. He got away for many years..Well this gal was working in a nail salon..At the end. She said ‘she was Cynthia; The gal that got away. But she ended up with an abuser anyway. So sad. I say a prayer for her every once in awhile. And I do hope she’s doing ok..Drugs are very evil. Once a person loses control , it’s almost impossible to get away from

  7. filling the must time.

    When you home going fast like.

    When i have to say good and fine…

  8. All that fucking cop can say is how “remarkable” this mass murdering, torturing, raping psychopathic piece of shit is. “Remarkable, remarkable”

  9. I’m already busy watching Real Chance of Love, with Real and Chance attempting to girl swap every week, and frankly I think I’ve had just about enough of double duos trying to
    hook up with the same damn set of people. However, I think I could get over that for
    a chance at being around any of these incredibly
    sexy women. za gives you the excitement that everyone is looking for.

  10. Thanks in support of sharing such a good opinion, article is fastidious, thats why i have read it fully

  11. “Defence attorney” Really “defence” lol

  12. That defense attorney is a freak himself. He continues to grin like he’s not phased by the atrocities his client committed. 

  13. That court system did nothing but totally re-traumatize this woman all over again.  This is the very reason, that women will not come forward or are terrified to come forward.    God Bless her, and I hope she can find that part in herself again someday that was shattered into a million pieces.  Makes me so sad to know that sick human beings like this A hole, exist on this earth.  I wish I could hug her and let her know that she is not alone. 

    • She is a very nice lady. She didn’t make the best choices in life. But it’s no excuse to mistreat a human. He was The Evil. He should have faced the death penalty . NM doesn’t have one though. I just wonder how many he murdered. It was a whole lot.. I hope she’s doing well too

    • This poor womans life is changed forever becouse of this sick bastard, Bless her heart. I dont think it ever said how she got away from him ?..Or if it did I missed it….I hope she can learn to live again without total fear. I also think his daughter should have received as much prison time as he got..Shes as guilty as him.

  14. Keeps fucking upat the same part

  15. that link is invalid. here is a new link:

  16. david parker ray is one sound man..


  18. darn link is dead ,, channel 5 claim

  19. damn he’s ugly as fuck too…what a creep…

  20. This lawyer is fucking scum. I’d love to knock that smug look off his face.

    • Even the most heinous criminal must receive a fair trial. Every person deserves to have adequate representation. That is how our adversarial system works. I don’t believe for one minute that the defense council feels any sympathy for his former client, but was his duty to represent him to the best of his ability. He, in fact, says he believes the defendant is guilty, and ultimately David Ray was put away permanently. It may not be the punishment you would want, but it’s the best that could be done in these circumstances. His daughter’s plea bargain is certainly another issue and I don’t agree with it. You don’t like the look on his face?? Deal with it.

  21. erm it has been taken off 🙁 copy rights blahblahblah

    • You can watch it in the UK via channel 5’s website. Just google the Sex Chamber documentary – that’s how I found it! 

  22. Wonder what the first judge’s motivation behind not allowing the tape for its ‘irrelevancy’ was. I’m not a doctor or anything, but it seemed pretty damn relevant..

  23. theres some sick motherfuckers out there. Normal rights and laws shouldnt apply to some individuals. They should have sentenced him death by torture, Have his organs removed and given to people how need. Human beings like this motherfucker need to be recycled 

  24. That defense lawyer has no soul. NO soul.
