SOUTH PLAINFIELD At first, Andrea Leipow thought the severed human hand nicknamed Freddy, found in a mason jar of formaldehyde on a basement table, was just a bizarre joke.
But when a resident at the home on the quiet suburban street read a satanic text in the language Enochian, the 25-year-old Leipow, who moved into the home in February, started to get "creeped out," she said.
Things grew much darker at the house, which was shared by a group of people in their 20s, Leipow told the Home News Tribune yesterday.
The two exotic dancers living there, Linda E. Kay, 31, and Polina Nikulina, 26, and Sean F. McDonough, 30, who owns the home with Kay, would sit around and listen to CDs of speeches given by the now-dead founder of the Church of Satan, Anton Levay, said Leipow.
A family member of McDonough's called the allegations of satanism "absolute nonsense."
But Leipow described what was the culmination of a bizarre and ultimately dangerous stay at the home at 28 Diana Drive.
On April 29, the exotic dancers and McDonough, whom Leipow described as a cultlike leader, attacked her, holding her against her will for five hours and threatening to slice her jugular vein, according to Leipow and court records. McDonough pointed an empty shotgun at her forehead and pulled the trigger, according to a complaint signed against him by police.
A woman reached by phone at the Scotch Plains home where McDonough grew up, who identified herself only as his sister, said Leipow's account is nothing more than revenge. Leipow was his jilted lover who was ordered to leave the house, she said.
"She decided that was the best way to get back at him," the woman said.
Asked about the alleged attack against Leipow, the woman said: "Oh, my God. Absolutely ridiculous."
But Leipow claims it was all too real.
"I don't think I would have gotten my restraining orders finalized if I was making this up," Leipow said.
Leipow, who has worked as a waitress and a freelance model, first moved into the home on Feb. 28.
She knew Nikulina from Millburn High School. Leipow, who described herself as falling somewhere between a punk and a preppy, said Nikulina went through a "Goth" phase as a teenager, but did little more than wear black clothes.
At the Diana Drive home, Nikulina and Kay would come home from work late from the strip club where they dance, Hott22 in Union. Nikulina used the stage name Adah. Kay's was Zilla, and she favored lingerie and huge heels, Leipow said.
At first, they seemed like ordinary people, aside from their unusual jobs, Leipow said.
But the books on black magic, six human skulls in a bedroom and the medieval weapons, such as a mace, made her feel increasingly uncomfortable. Unclothed mannequins wearing wigs were in several rooms, she said.
A tattoo-artist friend of the group came by one night and tattooed the three women with upside down 3s on the back of each of their necks.
Leipow, who got the tattoo as a lark, asked them what it meant.
"They said it meant freedom," she recalled. Now, she's not so sure.
On April 29, she said she accompanied McDonough, Nikulina and Kay to a neighbor's house, then came back home. The three were drinking heavily, Leipow said.
An argument broke out, and McDonough ordered the two women to strip Leipow and throw her into the street, she said. They forced her to drink alcohol so police wouldn't believe her if she called them, Leipow said.
The situation grew even more violent, she said.
"Linda had a knife to my throat," she said. McDonough knelt on her to restrain her, she said. "I really thought he was going to kill me," she said.
McDonough, whom she described as a large man, threatened to "cut her open," according to Leipow and court documents.
"Then they said they did too much to me, they had to kill me," she said.
Eventually all three drank themselves into stupors, Leipow said.
"I ended up leaving without any shoes on," she said.
McDonough was charged with second-, third- and fourth-degree offenses, including weapons and terroristic threats charges, according to court documents.
Kay and Nikulina were both charged with third-degree offenses of criminal restraint, making terroristic threats and weapons violations, according to court documents.
They were all freed on bail.
Kay's attorney, Donald DiGioia, could not be reached yesterday evening. The name of Nikulina's attorney could not be learned.
But McDonough's sister said the picture being painted of her brother, Kay and Nikulina is completely false.
"They are all sweet kids," the woman said. "All very, very sweet people who genuinely go out of their way to help you."
They didn't get "333" tattoos, three different women got a "3" tattooed on the back of their necks. I presume it's a reference to Father, Son and Holy Ghost, inverted. Similar to hanging a cross upside down. A negation.
In the Bible Adah and Zillah were the wives of the murderer Lamech.
In occult circles Adah and Zillah are considered to be the daughters of Lilith the demoness.
These people are definitely into something very sinister.
They don't sound like Sunday School teachers, thats for sure. And did you catch the last part...
"But McDonough's sister said the picture being painted of her brother, Kay and Nikulina is completely false. "They are all sweet kids," the woman said. "All very, very sweet people who genuinely go out of their way to help you."
"Enochian" is supposed to be an angelic language. If these people haven't driven themselves completely crazy yet, they will soon enough.
"Maybe it's a copyright thing?"
