BANGOR, ME —Earlier this month we reported that 20-year-old Kyle Dube had been charged with the murder of 15-year-old Nichole Cable. Yesterday an affidavit reveals that Nichole died after Kyle intended to kidnap Nichole, hide her and then find her so he could be deemed a hero. Unfortunately for Nichole, Kyle is an idiot who accidentally killed her in the process.
Nichole went missing on Mother’s Day after leaving her home to meet someone she had met on Facebook named Bryan Butterfield. A week later, after receiving information from several sources, police found Nicole’s dead body in a wooded area. The following day, Kyle Dube was charged with intentional and knowing murder.
At the time we first reported on this, there were not a lot of details regarding the relationship between Kyle and Nichole. The information in the affidavit fills in some of those blanks. Turns out Kyle had made sexual advances towards Nichole, but Nichole had turned him down. Kyle then created a fake Facebook profile using someone else’s identity and began communicating online with Nichole.On the day she went missing, Kyle used the fake “Bryan Butterfield” account to get Nicole to meet him at the end of her street so she could get some weed. Kyle had no intentions of doing this, as it was just a way to get Nichole out of her house and inact the first stage of his stupid plan.
As she walked down the street, Kyle jumped out of the bushes, restrained Nichole with duct-tape and then put her in his father’s pickup truck. According to the affidavit, his plan was to leave her in the woods and then find her later, becoming the local hero in the process.
But when he got to the location he planned to leave her, he found that Nichole was dead. An official cause of death still has not been revealed, aside from it being labelled a homicide, but it sounds like she may have suffocated after Kyle duct-taped her face. He placed Nichole in the woods, covered her with sticks, and then threw her clothes out the window as he drove back. He told this story to both his brother and his girlfriend, who relayed the information to police.
Police also contacted the real Butterfield who told them he suspected Kyle had made a fake Facebook account using his name. Police were able to trace the IP address for the fake Butterfield’s Facebook page to the home where Kyle lived with his parents. So far, no information has been released regarding the relationship between Butterfield, Kyle and Nichole.
Kyle Dube is being held without bail at the Penobscot County Jail. If Kyle is convicted of murder, he faces between 25 years and life in prison. A lot of these details are from an affidavit using info from what Kyle says happened. While I have no doubt someone would kidnap a chick just to rescue her, as we just had a story in the news where a guy staged an armed robbery to impress his date, this just sounds like someone coming up with a story to make his motives seem less sinister.
