Madison Brooks rape suspect shockingly predicts alleged assault in video from front seat

One of the men who witnessed the alleged rape of Louisiana State University student Madison Brooks seemed to predict what was going to happen, apparently saying in a video, “These guys are crazy. They finna rape her.”

Casen Carver, one of the suspects, allegedly made the shocking prediction in a selfie video he recorded from the front seat of the car that he, his three friends and Brooks got into on Jan. 15.

In the seconds-long clip, which was played in court Friday, Carver reportedly claimed, “These guys are crazy. They finna rape her,” Kerry Miller, the attorney for Brooks’ mother, told Fox News Digital.

Brooks, a 19-year-old college sophomore, was allegedly raped in the backseat of a car by Kaivon Washington, 18, and Desmond Carter, 17, who is being tried as an adult, after the group left Reggie’s bar in East Baton Rouge between 1 and 2 a.m.

After the alleged assault, which was witnessed by Everett Lee, 28, and Carver, 18, the group of men dropped Brooks off on the side of a busy four-lane highway when she indicated she was going to call an Uber.

Soon after she got out of the vehicle, Brooks was fatally struck by a rideshare vehicle.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office confirmed to The Post that Brooks’ cause of death was “multiple traumatic injuries 2nd motor vehicle versus pedestrian collision,” meaning she later died at the hospital.

Videos, surveillance images and other evidence from that night have not been made public as they are in the hands of the Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office, which is prosecuting the case.

Some evidence, however, was shared in court on Friday, according to Miller, who said surveillance footage showed the suspects’ car had stayed where Brooks was allegedly raped for about 20 minutes.

“You can’t really see what’s going on inside the car from the surveillance camera … someone hung a T-shirt on one of the back windows to block the view of what was going on in the back seat,” Miller said.

“During the 20 minutes the car was parked in the parking lot, prosecutors played video snippets. One of Kaivon (Washington) shoving Maddie down in the backseat, physically shoving her, pushing her hard.”

As the alleged incident was unfolding, loud rap music was blasting inside the car, according to Miller.

Despite the loud music, Brooks is heard in surveillance video screaming, “Get off,” Miller said.

As the alleged incident was unfolding, loud rap music was blasting inside the car, according to Miller.

The short clip Carver recorded also revealed what was going on inside the back seat of the car.

“You can see what’s going on in the back seat from the right side of the camera,” Miller said. “That’s where you see Kaivon (Washington) pushing Maddie down.

“Then you see Carter with his pants down on top of Maddie. You kind of see her legs sticking up, and she doesn’t have anything on. You know it’s Desmond Carter because he wore a plaid shirt.”

According to Miller, the suspects could be heard cheering after the alleged incident.

Joe Long, who represents Carver, told Fox that prosecutors “have not provided that discovery to me yet; in fact, there is a lot of discovery that has not been provided yet.”

“I don’t have any further comment as I was not present, have not seen the discovery and don’t represent Desmond (Carter).”

On Friday, Carter’s lawyer argued his $150,000 bail should be lowered to $75,000.
