Man, 55, admits strangling trailer neighbor, 24

Authorities in central Michigan said a 55-year-old man has confessed to beating and strangling a 24-year-old neighbor as part of a sexual fantasy, hiding her naked body, and then returning to her trailer home and helping her 3-year-old son get costumed for Halloween.

John D. White was arraigned Thursday in Mount Pleasant on first-degree murder charges and ordered jailed without bond. The ex-convict said he was a church employee until this week.

Police said White admitted thinking several weeks about killing Rebekah Gay. In an affidavit, police said White told them he went to Gay's trailer about 2 a.m. Wednesday, struck her head repeatedly with a mallet, then strangled her with a zip tie.

Police said he led them to her body, a half-mile away from the home in Isabella County's Broomfield Township.

That's exactly the point. Stop pointing fingers! You judge others, but do not judge yourself? This murderer was some persons 'pastor' or guardian of their soul. Maybe yours? Guard your own soul and do not think that by blaming you can hide from yourself. All souls are truly part of a greater whole and by definition are empty (although you meant it in a derogatory manner).

(Quoting from the article: The ex-convict said he was a church employee until this week.) Where does the article state he was a pastor? He could have been maintenance or anything? The only ironic thing here is your desire to mock religion shining thru loud and clear.

I think we should bring back crucifixion for this guy and people like him! Doesn't cost much (few boards and nails) and we could put it on pay per view sunday mornings,You'd have people skipping church to watch that,and would generate millions!
