Dominatrix who killed ex in treehouse sex lair was obsessed with ‘blood play’

A "demon" dominatrix who stabbed her ex to death in her neighbour's treehouse was obsessed with "blood play" in the bedroom.

Julia Enright worked as a phlebotomist at a clinical laboratory and was used to taking samples of blood – but her interest soon spilt into her private life.

Enright, who was 21 at the time, advertised herself on business cards as Mistress Jasmine and enjoyed BDSM on the side in 2018.

She created art from animal bones and kept creatures, known as "wet specimens" and vials of blood in jars inside of her home in Ashburnham, Massachusetts, USA.

Two years earlier, she had been studying at a vocational-technical high school and met Brandon Chicklis while travelling on the bus.They later started dating.

Brandon, a former boy scout, was known for being kind and thoughtful and was described as quirky, with a goofy laugh.

It was reported that they would meet for sex in her neighbour’s treehouse, where Enright set up restraints. But by 2018, they had split but remained friends.

Then, on June 24, Brandon’s family reported him missing. He’d told them he was visiting a relative the day before – but never showed up. He’d been looking forward to turning 21 and his disappearance was very out of character.

A week later, his Honda car was found abandoned at a supermarket.

And a week after that, a jogger found Brandon's body dumped on the side of a highway in Rindge, New Hampshire, a town just across the state line from Massachusetts.

He’d been stabbed a dozen times and his remains had been wrapped in a blanket, tarpaulin and sheet, then stuffed into two rubbish bags that had been duct-taped up. While his body was badly decomposed, his shirt had 12 slits in it.

Investigators looked at Brandon’s phone records and found that the day he vanished, his mobile could be traced to Enright’s address. She’d invited him to visit her and had told him to keep their meeting a “secret”.

When police went to her home, they discovered animal carcasses and a bucket of animal organs. There were also used condoms and several knives.

Officers then found blood splattered across the neighbour’s treehouse, which was confirmed to belong to Brandon.

Investigators also found a message that Enright had sent to her new boyfriend the night before the killing that read: “Do you think we could add bubbles to the blood bath?”

Moments later, Enright had invited Brandon to meet her at the treehouse the next day, before she stabbed him to death.

After his death, she had suggested in her journal that she had done something for her boyfriend and admitted that she'd been aroused by an event.

It read: “It was a form of a present. I did it just for him. That was my intention.” She’d also written that her boyfriend may not have liked her “surprise”.

Two weeks after Brandon’s body was found. Enright was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors discovered that before Brandon’s death, she had tried to bribe staff at an abortion clinic to let her take a foetus home. But she claimed she wouldn’t have done it and the request was just part of her “outrageous persona”.

Her trial started in November last year. The prosecution said Enright enticed Brandon to the BDSM-themed treehouse and stabbed him to death as a surprise for her new boyfriend.

Before Brandon arrived at the treehouse, Enright had covered the floor with the tarpaulin and the blanket. She had also bought ropes and chains, which were never found.

While on the stand, Enright said that after the killing, Lind had helped her cover it up by dumping Brandon’s body.

Lind was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact of murder. He pleaded not guilty and awaits trial.

Enright was found guilty of second-degree murder. She was sentenced in March this year.

Brandon's mum, Trisha Edwards-Lamarche told the judge: “Every day when I drive to work, I get to choose: Do I drive by where she dumped my son’s body today, or do I drive by where she dumped his car?”

“What I would give for one more moment with my son. Just one more moment.”

Enright issued an apology in court.

Now 24, she has been given life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years.
