2 more victims speak out against Bottone

Two other young minority men have spoken out, saying that Lawrence Bottone, who calls himself 'Doctor Hunter,' has also brutalized them in addition to others.

Before the two victims came forward, Bottone, who is accused of sadistic acts toward seven young men, including the two who have just come forward, was already facing nearly 30 charges.

According to authorities, Bottone lured young minority men by telling them he'd train them for the CIA at Westchester Community College. Instead, when the victims arrived, he put them through torture by tying them up, whipping them and placing pins under their finger nails.

Bottone, who is being held on $250,000 bail, is now facing 53 charges.
