A Tulsa woman said she was kidnapped, beaten, forced to be addicted to drugs and now Tulsa police think her case is connected to a recent homicide.

Gary Livers is in the Tulsa County Jail, accused of kidnapping.

Police told FOX23's Janai Norman that this case could lead to a larger web of crime.

A police investigation led police back to the home where Quinton Shaver was found dead five days ago.

Police way a woman now says she was stabbed, kicked and stunned with a Taser at the house.

George July, Angela Proctor, and John Hunter are all in jail tied to Quinton Shaver's homicide.

"And we're finding out more about kidnappings and torture of young women who are addicted to the methamphetamine," said Sgt. Dave Walker with the Tulsa Police Department.

That's what police said happened to a victim.

Livers' arrest and booking report shows the woman claims she was kidnapped at gunpoint, had tape put over her head and face, and over the course of two weeks was repeatedly assaulted.

"They're all drug-addicted, about as severely drug-addicted people as I've come across," said Walker.

Walker said meth is the root of this cult, as he calls it, that July, Proctor, Hunter and Livers were all allegedly a part of.

He said just because they're behind bars doesn't mean it's over.

"It worries me a little bit that we're scratching the surface of something that's growing as we speak," he said.

Walker said that's why as more names come up, detectives have more people to track down.
