Corey Thomas Named Second War Machine Assault Victim
LOS ANGELES — The second victim in the War Machine felony assault case involving adult star Christy Mack has been identified as former reality TV contestant Corey Thomas, TMZ reported Wednesday.
Thomas, a web designer, was one of the stars of VH1's "Megan Wants a Millionaire" in 2009. He reportedly was with Mack at her Las Vegas home in the early hours of Friday morning, when War Machine showed up unannounced and allegedly unleashed the beatings. Thomas suffered a broken nose and two black eyes, according to reports.
He also is said to have been bitten by War Machine, aka Jon Koppenhaver, the professional fighter who on Wednesday remained on the run with seven warrants out for his arrest.
Thomas' co-star on "Megan Wants a Millionaire," Ryan Jenkins, hanged himself in 2009 days after being wanted for questioning for the death of his wife.
Mack remains hospitalized in Las Vegas with severe injuries that include 18 broken bones in her face and a ruptured liver. There is a $20K reward for information leading to War Machine's capture.
Reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter late Tuesday claimed he was closing in on War Machine after making contact with him.
