'Vampire' assault case headed to N. Ala. grand jury

Evan Brown Evan Brown

GADSDEN, AL (WSFA) - The assault case of a self-proclaimed Alabama vampire is going to a grand jury.

20-year-old Evan Brown is accused of tying up a 17-year-old male and using a heated spoon heated utensils to burn the letter "V" on the victim's forehead. Gadsden police said the victim had been apparently abused in other ways as well, including cigarette burns.

Brown, or "Vamp" as he calls himself, had a court appearance Monday morning but his attorney waived the hearing before its scheduled time.

Investigators say Brown led a group of young runaways who called themselves "the homeless crew" and lived together at a home in Gadsden.

Brown remains free on $2,500 bond.
