Kenosha, Wisconsin - The Kenosha Police Department has taken over the murder investigation of Jenny Gamez, 21, of Oakridge, Oregon in the sadistic sexual acts involving BDSM that resulted in a double homicide involving Steven Mark Zelich, 52, from West Allis, Wisconsin. Authorities had requested the help of the Cottage Grove Police Department in Oregon to get Gamez's dental records from a dental clinic to determine, if she was Zelich's first victim, a confessed sadistic sex killer. Gamez was reported missing from Oregon in 2012 by her family.
Zelich told homicide investigators that he killed Gamez in late 2012 or early 2013 in Kenosha County, but wouldn't identified her. Zelich had been engaging in BDSM sex (BD) Bondage and Dominance, (SM) Sadism and Masochism with Gamez. Zelich didn't identified the woman as Gamez, but police on Monday during a news conference in Elkhorn confirmed her identity by dental records.
Zelich kept Gamez's body for about year at his West Allis apartment, police say.
Zelich also admitted to Rochester police in Minnesota that he killed Laura Jean Simonson, 37, of Farmington, Minnesota on November 2, 2013 at a local hotel. He then hid the body in his vehicle and left to Wisconsin. Zelich also confessed to killing an unidentified women who he met online and killed her in Kenosha County after having BDSM sex with her in late 2012 or early 2013. 
He kept both bodies and later discarded them inside several suitcases. Police have also confirmed the bodies were intact and not dismemered as previously reported. The bodies were discovered on the side of a rural road on June 5, 2014 near the Town of Geneva, Wisconsin.
Simonson's body still had a sex gagging mouth ball tied to her mouth and believed to have been strangled during BDSM sex. Gamez body had her hands tied behind her back and both bodies had been in a decomposing stage when they were found in several suitcases in Walworth County, according to police.
Zelich was charged on Thursday with two felony counts of hiding a corpse and a $1M cash bail was set on Friday during a bond hearing in Walworth County.
A homicide charged is expected to be filed against Zelich in Minnesota and another one in Kenosha County.
Zelich had used Collarspace with the name "Mr. Hancuffs" to promote his desire to have sex with submissive women who enjoy BDSM sex and liked to be tortured, placed on a cage, handcuffed and used as sex slaves.
In 2001, Zelich was given the option to resign from the West Allis Police Department after a naked prostitute ran into the street in handcuffs from his apartment. He was facing a misconduct disciplinary charge from the department, but after he resigned the charged was dismissed.
Zelich then went to work at Johnson s Control in Glendale as a security guard contracted by Securitas Security Services USA. He was hired by the security agency in 2007 and has been placed on administrative leave on Wednesday pending the outcome of the criminal charges.
