A biological father, his daughter, her adoptive father, and their child were all slain in crime scenes across state lines.
At 8:40 AM on the morning of March 12, 20-year-old Katie Pladl and her adoptive father, 56-year-old Anthony Fusco, were found dead in Connecticut. Katie Pladl’s biological father, Steven Pladl (43), allegedly gunned them down from his vehicle before killing himself. His body was discovered in New York.
Only twenty minutes after the first bodies were discovered, authorities found 7-month-old baby Bennett, the product of Steven and Katie’s alleged incestuous relationship. He had been killed in their Earlston Court home in Knightdale, North Carolina.
