I know I’ve been behind so today I’ll be posting the updates on this story in daily posts as I get them. This post may be updated throughout the day.
Authorities in Texas allowed Richard Beasley to remain free after he violated his parole in Ohio on drug charges. Texas was only interested in bringing Beasley back there if he was convicted on the Ohio drug charges. While this is unfortunate Texas could not have known that Beasley was going to go on to allegedly kill three people.
Beasley pleaded not guilty to the prostitution charges against him. If you’ll recall he is accused of profiting from prostitution. Allegedly 14 people were under his employ including a 17-year-old girl.
The 3rd fatality possibly connected to the craigslist killings has been officially identified as 56-year-old Ralph Geiger of Akron.
As you can surmise by the headline prosecutors in Summit County, Ohio have announced that they will seek the death penalty against Beasley.
Investigators say that Ralph Geiger was murdered back in August which could make him the first victim of the craigslist murder scam.
