FULL RECORDING: David Parker Ray, Toy Box Killer Audio Torture Tape

This is the full, real recording of the infamous David Parker Ray audio tape. Over the years, countless fakes have cropped up, but the legitimate version was made public via request through the New Mexico Public Inspection of Records in October 2022. The tape is just under five minutes long and was recorded by Ray himself.

Listen to the audio here. The tape details deeply disturbing acts (that Ray's victims were later exposed to). LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK.

David Parker Ray (November 6, 1939 – May 28, 2002) was a man with a dark secret. By day, he was a mild-mannered family man, but by night, he morphed into a cold-blooded killer. His victims were unfortunate women who found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Though their bodies were never found, police suspected that Ray had murdered as many as 60 people in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Ray was known as the "Toy-Box Killer" because of the elaborate equipment he used to torture his victims.

Ray created a $100,000 homemade torture chamber that he referred to as his "Toy Box". Ray outfitted the room with an array of harrowing instruments that he deemed his “friends” - whips, chains, pulleys, straps, clamps and leg spreader bars - in addition to penetrative tools such as saws and surgical blades. With these tools at his disposal, and with the aid of several accomplices, Ray abducted, tortured and possibly killed an unknown number of women.

Inside the chamber, Ray had an array of sex toys, implements for inflicting pain, syringes and diagrams he had drawn up himself- with instructions for optimal positioning to ensure maximum torture. When victims awoke first awoke in the room, the first thing they’d be subject to was an amateur tape recording that Ray dubbed his 'orientation tape', describing the horrors that the listener would be forced to endure over the next few days, weeks and months.

Ray was found guilty of both kidnapping and torture in 2001, resulting in a lengthy prison sentence. He was never convicted of murder, but passed away from a heart attack one year later, following convictions on two separate cases (the second being resolved through a plea deal).
