BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Charles Dean Bryant, the man accused in 2016 of slaying and trying to burn the body of a 24-year-old college student, claims that he did not kill the woman. During the opening statement, Bryant’s defense attorney stated that the woman’s death is the unfortunate result of a sex game gone terribly wrong.
Texas Man Said Woman Was ‘Ok’ with Wild Sex Game
During his Monday court appearance, Charles Dean Bryant claimed through Glynis McGinty, his attorney, that he did not murder 24-year-old Jacqueline Vandagriff in 2016. More than that, McGinty stated that the woman’s death was an ‘unfortunate accident’ and the result of wild sex game which took a fatal turn.
McGinty told the jury that his client’s only guilty of tampering with evidence, as he panicked and didn’t know what to do. However, the evidence recovered from the crime scene tends to paint a completely different story.
According to the court documents, Jacqueline Vandagriff was last seen alive on the 13th of September 2016. Street security footage reveals the woman entering a bar and leaving after a couple of hours in the company of Charles Dean Bryant.
The suspect would be seen again at approximately 4:00 a.m., when he entered a local Walmart to buy a shovel and cough medicine. He was arrested later that day and charged with the death of the 24-year-old TWU student.
According to the police report, Vandagriff’s dismembered body was found in Bryant’s backyard, placed in an inflatable kiddie pool. When the authorities arrived to take the man in custody, Bryan set ablaze the woman’s remains.
When questioned by the authorities regarding the human remains, the Texas man claimed that Vandagriff died in what he described as a kinky and consensual sex game. Furthermore, the man told the authorities that he panicked and attempted to hide the woman’s in his yard, but the ground was much too hard to dig a grave.
