Easton, PA- A man from Pennsylvania has been accused of murdering his stepdaughter and then having sex with her corpse before concealing the body.
Gregory Graf, 53, has been found guilty of killing his stepdaughter Jessica Padgett, 33, after she left work on November 21st. According to People Magazine she was approached by Graf shortly after leaving work where she was allegedly shot in the back of the head.
Graf buried her body behind a shed in his backyard after he was done abusing her lifeless body. Padgett’s family searched with high hopes devastated when the gruesome truth surfaced.
Jessica’s mother was away in Florida at the time of the incident.
Police found footage on two surveillence cameras of Graf performing a variety of sexual acts on Padgett’s dead body. More videos were also discovered on his computer.
Mother Of Three Murdered By Stepfather
“Graf was arrested five days later after police found her body buried behind a shed on the property where he lives with Padgett’s mother. Graf, 53, is being held without bail on a homicide charge. The fencing company owner confessed to killing Padgett, a recently married mother of three,” reports People Magazine.
It was reported that her death occurred about 10 minutes after leaving her job at Northhampton Daycare Center where her stepfather was waiting.
In addition to murder charges, Graf is also being charged with possession of drugs after his marijuana operation was discovered while searching for Padgett’s body.
Graf may not face charges for necrophilia under Pennsylvania law. “Rape rises to that level, but the sexual desecration of a corpse does not, as case law has established,” said Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.
Graf is being held without bond and is expected to appear in court for sentencing.Read More
