Pastor John Douglas White, 55, has been arrested for killing a woman in other to carnal knowledge of her corpse.
The suspect after been thoroughly quizzed by the police confessed that he had fantasized for two weeks about killing the 24-year-old woman and having sex with her dead body.
The victim Rebecca Gay was last seen at her home on M-20 near Coldwater Road in Broomfield Township in the US, about 6:50 a.m. on Wednesday, October 31,2012, police said.
After she was reported missing, police identified White as a person of interest and was taken to the sheriff’s office for questioning. He was uncooperative at first, police said, but eventually told them where to find the body of Gay.
White told police he had four or five 24-ounce beers before going to Gay’s mobile home at 2 am. Gay and White both lived in the South Valley Trailer Park in Broomfield M-20 in Coldwater.
Police believe White came and attacked Gay in the hallway, with a rubber mallet hitting her several times in the head and squeezing a wrap tie around her neck to stop her breathing.
White told police he dragged the victim’s body to the kitchen and got naked, but does not remember having sex with her.
White said he put the body of Gay, along with the harness, clothing and bloody rags in the back of his truck, dumping her body in the street.
White told police he returned to the home after dumping Gay and drove her truck to the bar barn door to make it appear that she was kidnapped, throwing her phone, car keys and purse in a dumpster in the trailer park.
In 1994, White pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter and was sentenced to 8 to 15 years in prison related to the disappearance of a woman from Comstock Township in Kalamazoo County.
In addition, White pleaded no contest in 1981 to one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm for stabbing a woman in Calhoun County.
