When Mandy Boardman walked into the sex crimes office of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, she arrived with a bizarre and downright creepy allegation.

Boardman, a small-business owner, told a detective on May 10, 2011, that her husband, David Wise, had been drugging her for at least three years and raping her in her sleep — and that she had found video clips on his phone.

For years, she said, she had been feeling sleepy for no reason and had found eye droppers around their bedroom. Sometimes, she said, she would see a strange powder in her drinks, or would wake up with a pill partially dissolved in her mouth, and see her husband slipping away with a flashlight in the dark.
