Dylan VanCamp

MERRILL — A Merrill man is accused of waterboarding his girlfriend after he suspected that she was cheating on him.

A criminal complaint charges 22-year-old Dylan VanCamp with six felonies and three misdemeanors, including suffocation and stalking. Prosecutors say VanCamp covered the woman’s mouth with a washcloth and dumped water on her face in order to get her to talk about another man. The alleged incidents happened in June and November 2015.

WAOW-TV ( ) reports the woman told investigators she had a hard time breathing and felt as if she was drowning. She eventually went to authorities with her abuse allegations. Online court records do not list a defense attorney.

    Just another loser who thinks he can do whatever he wants in life with no consequences or regard for others. I would suggest giving him the same treatment, but that would be considered cruel punishment…..So cut a plea deal, give him two months in jail (probably time served when the court date comes up), and then cut him lose….but be sure to tell him to buy flowers for his girlfriend afterward……
    I hope the girl gets counseling and finally learns that real men protect women, they don’t mistreat them.
