The Keene Ranch murders of Amara Wells and Robert Rafferty Jr. in February resulted in the arrests of several alleged conspirators, including Matthew Plake. Then, in April, Krystal Kurcz and Megan Cassidy were charged as accessories -- but authorities declined to reveal their connection to the previous arrestees. Now, a hint: A web page implies that Plake and Cassidy were bondage buddies.

A NSFW page on that requires an electronic signature verifying that the viewer is an adult features the following photo and description:

Matthew Plake.
As for Kurcz, she appears to know Josiah Sher, arrested along with Plake, Micah Woody and Christopher Wells, Amara Wells's ex-husband, after the murders. Her Facebook page lists a number of people with the last name "Sher." And while Josiah Sher's Facebook page is down, cached links connected it to a number of Shers on the Kurcz page.

Thus far, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office hasn't released information spelling out the reasons for the Kurcz and Cassidy arrests. But this find suggests a complicated series of relationships among those accused of contributing to the Amara Wells/Robert Rafferty killings.

Look below to get a look at booking photos of Kurcz and Cassidy.
