EXCLUSIVE: The ex-wife of US yacht captain Ryan Bane revealed new charges over his alleged abuse a month later after his British girlfriend Sarm Heslop went missing following a night out at a bar in the Virgin Islands American.

Corie Stevenson told Fox News Thursday that he had lost his temper “dozens of times” with then pre-teen daughter Grace and that it was going so badly that she couldn’t leave them alone together when she was going. in class or at work.

“I couldn’t leave Ryan home alone with Grace because he would be so mean to her,” she said.

In one case, Stevenson said Grace, now 20, was 8 or 11. Bane had sent her upstairs to find a TV remote, Stevenson said. But the girl couldn’t find her and came back downstairs to tell her.

He would have gotten angry and yelled at her when he found it himself.

“He was so pissed off that he went upstairs, pulling her with him, lifting her up, throwing her on the bed,” Stevenson said. “There are a lot of cases like this that I didn’t find out until a bit later. Grace didn’t say anything for quite a while. “

Bane’s attorney told Fox News on Thursday that they “are not making any further comment at this time.”

On another occasion, Stevenson said her ex-husband gave the then 10-year-old girl a slingshot. The mother wanted to establish some house rules, including not using it indoors and not shooting animals, but Bane brushed her concerns aside, she said.

Then one day when Stevenson came home from a grocery store, she said she had come to find Bane yelling at his daughter – who had splashed a gooey toy on a sliding glass door with the slingshot.

“I mean red-faced, vein sticking out of his neck, insane screams,” she said. “I walk in, and Grace is standing there crying hysterically – and I’m like, ‘What just happened?’ “

“He was like, ‘She could’ve smashed the glass,’” Stevenson said. “He was crazy. I just grabbed her and left the house. “

When the couple divorced, Stevenson said Bane took his daughter’s dog, Hunter, who he was pictured with as recently as last month in the Virgin Islands.

According to Stevenson’s version of events, Bane had violated a restraining order and she called the police. An officer accidentally let the dog out of the house, and Bane has had it ever since.

As Fox News previously reported, Bane was jailed for beating Stevenson in 2011 after a drunken night at a wedding – then his probation was revoked for violating the terms of his release.

Stevenson married Bane in 2008 – and the two divorced in 2014. She told Fox News that he is verbally and physically abusive and can quickly lose his temper, especially with women.

But there were signs of trouble long before the chaotic split, Stevenson said.

“When we had alcohol at home, he would drink it until it was gone,” she said. “The pills the same way. “

She also alleged that on several occasions he had killed wild animals that she was feeding in their yard.

She told Fox News in March that he killed a friendly squirrel in their backyard and left it in the freezer for her to find. On another occasion, she said he shot and massacred a fawn and tried to feed her – allegedly knowing she had left food outside for that.

When she learned that he briefly picked up the anchor and left Frank Bay, where his ship, the Siren Song, was moored when Heslop went missing, Stevenson said she immediately began carrying a handgun with it at all times. And she said she slept with a shotgun by her side during their divorce proceedings.

“I have my port hidden, I usually don’t have my gun with me,” she said. “But ever since it started, it’s been on me every day. Everywhere I go, it is with me. “

Bane, a licensed pilot, could travel discreetly to virtually anywhere, she claimed.

Stevenson said she hoped that by sharing her story she could add urgency to the missing person’s case.

Bane reported Heslop missing in the early morning hours of March 8. She was last seen in public with Bane at a bar in St. John in the US Virgin Islands the night before.

Sarm Heslop was reported missing on March 8.

After calling 911 to say she was missing from the 47ft catamaran around 2:30 a.m., police told her they ordered her to contact the U.S. Coast Guard for a search and rescue. He would have waited about 10 hours to do so.

Bane refused to allow investigators to search Siren Song and the police did not name him a suspect. The US Coast Guard boarded the ship, but Bane allegedly prevented members of the service from searching the cabin, prompting several citations.

Stevenson, who knew Bane growing up and attended the same high school, said police not searching the ship is “the craziest thing I’ve ever heard of.”

“Looking for the last place they knew the girl, I thought it would be one of the first things they would do,” she said.

Investigators in the Virgin Islands have repeatedly declined to answer questions about whether they were looking for a search warrant for Siren Song or whether Bane was seen as a person of interest, citing the ongoing investigation.

However, Jerry Forrester, a former FBI agent and Caribbean private investigator, said it shouldn’t be difficult to establish probable cause and obtain a search warrant for the last place a missing person has. been seen.

“They have a pretty probable cause, I think,” he told Fox News last week. “She disappeared, and she was on that boat… They just aren’t doing their job. “
