Murder suspect: Vampire, Werewolf, or just insane?
Back in July, Panama City, Florida teen Jacob Hendershot was missing for weeks before his naked body was found dead inside a storm drain. Now one of four suspects in the case claims she’s a vampire.
“Since I was like 12 every fiber in my body basically everything, I know this is going to be crazy, but I believe that I’m a vampire and part werewolf,” 18-year-old Stephanie Pistey said in a jailhouse interview with WJHG.
Pistey claims that 16-year-old Hendershot, an ex-boyfriend, had raped her. Three of her male friends, 17-year-old William Henry Chase, 25-year-old Joel Millsap and 20-year-old James Gay, are alleged to have lured Hendrshot to a house to extract their revenge. They’re accused of brutally beating the teen to death before stripping him naked, throwing his clothes in a bay, and dumping his body in the storm drain. His throat had been cut, and his body showed signs of strangling.
Rumors, started by the Facebook postings of the suspects, spread around the Panhandle town that they may have been involved in some sort of Vampire cult.
