The Disappearance of Danielle Stislicki

Danielle Stislicki and her artwork she posted to her Instagram account the morning before she disappeared.

During the early morning hours of December 2nd, 2016, Danielle posted this self-portrait to Instagram with the caption, “November Danielle: Complete!” The 28-year-old had been very active on Instagram throughout 2016 and her artwork was often the subject of her posts. Just weeks earlier, Danielle had posted that she was going to draw and post a self-portrait each month—and November Danielle was her very first one. She posted the picture from her Farmington Hills, Michigan home around 2:30am before going to bed. 

Hours later, Danielle awoke to go to her job at MetLife in Southfield. While at work, she made plans to meet one of her close friends for dinner. Danielle left work around 5pm. She planned to stop by her apartment before meeting up with her friend. Unfortunately, Danielle never showed up to meet her friend, and all calls to her phone went straight to voicemail. 

Danielle’s friend was not too worried at first—she simply assumed that Danielle fell asleep after work. However, the next afternoon, Danielle’s friend learned that she had failed to show up for her 8am shift at MetLife. This prompted her to drive by Danielle’s apartment to check on her. Upon arriving, Danielle’s friend found her car parked in its usual spot. It was locked, and her purse, credit cards, identification and other personal items were inside. Danielle was also not inside her apartment. 

It is believed that Danielle left all of those items in her car on purpose on the evening of December 2nd—as she simply planned to change clothes then return to her car to go meet her friend. After searching both Danielle’s car and apartment, it was determined that the only things that Danielle had with her when she vanished were her keys, cell phone, and clothes on her back.

Just a few weeks after Danielle’s disappearance, on December 19th, 2016, Farmington Hills police announced that they believed Danielle was a victim of a crime. Three days later, police searched the residence of Floyd Galloway Jr. (30) in Berkley, Michigan. Floyd was previously a security guard at the MetLife building where Danielle worked.

Floyd was not employed there on December 2nd, 2016, but many witnesses have come forward claiming that they saw Danielle and Floyd together in the MetLife parking lot on that evening. The police ended up searching Floyd’s home numerous times in the months after Danielle’s disappearance, and they seized numerous items throughout those searches. Still, Danielle remained missing, and Floyd was not initially charged with anything related to her disappearance. 

On June 28th, 2017, Floyd was arrested for the attempted rape of another 28-year-old woman in Livonia. The woman says that she was jogging in Hines Park when Floyd grabbed her from behind by the neck and choked her, punched her in the face and began dragging her into the woods toward the Rouge River. Luckily, the woman was able to escape and call 911.

Meanwhile, Floyd continued to deny involvement in Danielle's case. However, in 2019, Floyd was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection to the disappearance of Danielle Stislicki. He pleaded guilty to unrelated kidnapping and sexual assault charges back in 2017 and remains behind bars today. In September 2019, Floyd pleaded not guilty to the charges. He is expected to go to trial in 2022.

Danielle’s remains have still not been found.

The Disappearance of Lakira Goldsmith

The family of Lakira Goldsmith is appealing to the public to help find the 20 year-old, who has been missing since November 27th, 2018. Lakira was last seen that day on Narrow Lane Road located in Montgomery, Alabama. She has not contacted her friends or family, nor has she been seen since then. 

Lakira suffers from a severe case of asthma and requires daily medication. However, she left all of her medication behind when she vanished. Lakira’s mother has called local hospitals to see if Lakira ended up suffering from a medical emergency, but no hospital has any record of Lakira being a patient. Her mother has also frequently searched all the areas Lakira is known to visit. Lakira’s family members describe her as a dedicated parent who would never voluntarily leave her two year-old son behind. 

Unfortunately, there is very little information available about the investigation into Lakira’s disappearance. Lakira’s family is hoping that somebody from the public will come forward with answers. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please contact the Montgomery CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.

The Disappearance and Murder of Kelsey Berreth

“ 29 year-old Kelsey Berreth has been missing since November 22nd, 2018. It was Thanksgiving on the day the young mother disappeared, and early on she was seen at a Safeway grocery store...

29 year-old Kelsey Berreth vanished on November 22nd, 2018. It was Thanksgiving on the day the young mother disappeared, and early on she was seen at a Safeway grocery store near her home in Woodland Park, Colorado. Surveillance footage captured Kelsey at the store with her one year-old daughter. At some point later that day, Kelsey met with her fiancé/father of her child, Patrick Frazee, so he could pick up their daughter. Kelsey was seen never seen again by her family and friends.

Patrick Frazee and Kelsey

Patrick told authorities that he heard from Kelsey one final time via text on November 25th. Her mother reported her missing that same day. Kelsey was supposed to return to her job as a flight instructor the following day, but her employer reportedly received a text from her phone as well, that stated she planned to take a few days off. Her phone pinged off of a tower in Gooding, Idaho that same day—a town located around 700 miles away from her home in Colorado.

Kelsey’s family was initially baffled by her disappearance. At first, it did not seem odd that she would go to Idaho, as she has family in that area. But, it was soon realized that none of said family members reporting seeing Kelsey that day. Kelsey’s mother described Kelsey as a dedicated mother who would not leave her daughter behind. Kelsey’s brother told reporters that he went to Kelsey’s house after he found out she was missing, and noticed that there were no signs that she ran away. Her vehicles were still there, none of her makeup or personal items were missing, and it did not appear that she had packed up any clothes. It is also unclear why Kelsey’s fiancé, Patrick, did not report her missing earlier. Despite being engaged and having a daughter together, the couple did not live together. 

It did not take long for the FBI to get involved in Kelsey's disappearance. Investigators searched Patrick's home and workplace on numerous occasions but did not initially disclose what was found. Then, just a few months after Kelsey's disappearance, Patrick was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and solicitation for first-degree murder in connection with the death of Kelsey Berreth.

By February 2019, it was publicly revealed that Patrick's mistress, Krystal Lee Kenney, was also involved in Kelsey's disappearance. In fact, on February 5th, 2019, Krystal was charged with one felony count of tampering with physical evidence in the case. Just three days later, Krystal pleaded guilty to the charge and also agreed to testify against Patrick Frazee at his trial.


Throughout the case, it was revealed that Krystal and Patrick were having an affair that began in late 2016/early 2017. The pair had actually known each other for more than a decade, and Krystal’s ex-husband said that Patrick has always had a “special hold” over her. Arrest affidavits containing text messages between Krystal and Patrick show that Patrick spent months trying to convince Krystal to be the one to kill Kelsey. After he ended up killing Kelsey himself, he sent a text to Krystal that said, “You need to get here now. You’ve got a mess to clean up.” Patrick then took the daughter he shared with Kelsey and Kelsey’s cell phone to Thanksgiving dinner. 

While he was gone, Krystal went to Kelsey’s apartment to clean up the murder scene. Krystal told police she was not there for the murder herself, but that Patrick described it in detail. Patrick reportedly told Krystal that he blindfolded Kelsey to have her smell different scented candles and guess their scent. When she was distracted, Patrick smashed Kelsey in the face with a baseball bat and subsequently beat her to death. Krystal told investigators that she later helped Patrick burn Kelsey’s body and other evidence taken from the apartment. Patrick then asked Krystal to dispose of Kelsey’s remains, but she refused. She reportedly does not know where Patrick ended up disposing of them, but believes he went to a dump or a river. 

Police believe that Patrick killed Kelsey because he wanted full custody of their daughter. Today, Kelsey’s parents have custody of her. 

On November 18th, 2019, a jury found Patrick Frazee guilty of the murder of Kelsey Berreth. Less than an hour later, Judge Scott Sells sentenced Patrick to a life term plus an additional 156 years. The judge addressed Patrick directly in court, stating, "Your actions were vicious, senseless, without reason or explanation."

Kelsey's remains have still not been found.

The Disappearance of Taveta Hobbs

Taveta Hobbs has been missing since November 24th, 2008. The 43-year old woman was a Navy veteran who lived with her husband Phil Hobbs in Raleigh, North Carolina. Prior to her disappearance, Taveta was training to become a stenographer and working for a company in Cary. However, in late November 2008, Taveta’s boss received a text message from her phone that stated she was quitting. She never picked up her last paycheck and she has never been seen or heard from again.

It was not unusual for Taveta to drop out of sight for a few weeks or months, so she was not immediately reported missing. Finally, in October 2009, Taveta’s brother filed a missing persons report. Once police began to investigate, they questioned Taveta’s husband Phil. He told police that Taveta abruptly left and never returned. She left behind her car and all of her other personal belongings. Police found it odd that Phil never reported his wife missing. He explained that he thought Taveta was leaving him. Still, police found it suspicious that Phil never attempted to contact Taveta and that there has been no activity on her cell phone or bank account.

Numerous searches have been conducted for Taveta, but so far police have no trace of her. In 2018, police announced that they believe Taveta was murdered. So far, nobody has been charged with anything related to her case. Raleigh Police are still investigating. If you have any information that could help the case, please call 919-996-3555.
Lists including this case:

The Murder of Alexis Crawford

Alexis Crawford (pictured left) was tragically murdered at the age of 21 on October 30th, 2019. 

Prior to her death, Alexis was a student at Clark Atlanta University located in Atlanta, Georgia. She lived with a roommate named Jordyn Jones (pictured bottom right), and the two girls were frequently visited by Jordyn's boyfriend, Barron Brantley (pictured top right). In fact, just days before Alexis' murder, she was drinking with Jordyn and Barron at the home. At some point that night, Barron reportedly sexually assaulted Alexis.

Alexis reported the assault to authorities the following day, on October 27th, 2019. The report states that Barron touched and kissed Alexis without her consent. Barron claimed that he had mistaken Alexis for Jordyn. Later that night, Alexis walked into the bathroom and Barron followed her. She was reportedly later found partially naked on the bathroom floor. The report further states that Alexis said she did not remember Barron being in the bathroom with her, but she believed that she blacked out around that time. Barron has denied sexually assaulting her.

Alexis' family members last heard from her on the evening of October 30th. When they were unable to get ahold of her the next day, her family reported her missing. Police inevitably questioned both Barron and Jordyn in regards to Alexis' disappearance. Jordyn reportedly told investigators that she and Alexis were "not on speaking terms" due to an incident that she claimed was unrelated to the sexual assault. Despite this, though, Jordyn also told police that she drove Alexis to a local liquor store on the night of October 30th, allegedly per Alexis' request. Jordyn then stated that she saw Alexis at their apartment one last time around 12:30am, but when she woke up the next morning, Alexis was gone. 

Over the following week, police continued to investigate Alexis' disappearance. Their investigation kept leading them back to Barron and Jordyn. As police continued to question the two, one of them eventually told police where they could find Alexis' body. Police have not specified which of the two confessed, but Alexis' body was found shortly thereafter in Exchange Park in Decatur. 

Alexis' cause of death has not yet been revealed, but on November 8th, 2019, Barron was arrested and charged with her murder. The next day, Jordyn was arrested and charged with murder as well. Both were booked in Fulton County and remain behind bars as their cases are pending. 

An autopsy has confirmed that Alexis died of asphyxiation. Additionally, Barron Brantley reportedly confessed to authorities that he killed Alexis. This occurred after Alexis and Jordyn got into a physical altercation at their home on the night of the murder. At some point, Barron intervened and choked Alexis to death. Afterwards, Barron and Jordyn Jones put Alexis’ body in a plastic bin and then disposed of it in the woods at Exchange Park in Decatur. 

It has also been revealed that Alexis and Jordyn were best friends prior to the murder. In fact, Alexis’ family members stated that Jordyn often spent holidays with their family and was welcomed into their home. A spokesperson for the Crawford family explained to reporters, “It was a regular occurrence for Jordyn to spend time with Alexis’ family and to engage with Alexis’ siblings. To know that someone that they welcomed into home played a role in Alexis’ death is all the more hurtful.”

The Murder of Amanda Clairmont

Amanda Clairmont (21) posted the above image to her brand new Instagram account on November 10th, 2017. At the time, Amanda was a senior at the University of North Texas and an aspiring makeup artist. She created this Instagram account in hopes of showcasing some of her work in both makeup and photography. Amanda captioned the above photograph with, “Hello Beautiful people!! I️ am a makeup artist in the DFW area just wanting to share my work with the world. Follow my account to see my art and contact me if you need a top notch makeup artist.” By all accounts, she appeared enthusiastic about her future and was taking all the right steps in order to get her work out there. Unfortunately, Amanda never got the chance to fully advance her career. Nine days after she posted this image, on November 19th, 2017, Amanda was brutally murdered in a vacant parking lot in Corinth, Texas.

Amanda’s murder is the first murder in the town of Corinth in 17 years. The rural community was shocked by her death and very few details have been released about the investigation. Amanda’s half-brother Mike Gawlik stated that on the night of her death, Amanda was drinking at a place not far from where her body was later found. However, Mike said that Amanda was not a big drinker or a drug user, and he has no idea how she ended up dead in that parking lot. This was unusual for the two siblings, who were very close and told each other everything. Mike told reporters, “Everything she did, she’s always, always talked to me about it.”

Still, Mike cannot explain what happened to Amanda after midnight on November 19th. Around 1am, a witness near the parking lot called the police to report hearing multiple gunshots in the area. Police who responded went to the parking lot and found Amanda’s car parked up against a fence with the lights on and the passenger door opened. Inside the car, police found Amanda’s body. She had been shot multiple times.

Another unnamed witness apparently told investigators that another person was present at the scene when Amanda was shot, but that person fled before the police arrived. Investigators have not revealed whether or not this has been confirmed, nor have they made any comments on the motive behind the killing. At this time, it is unclear if they have a suspect in the case, which remains open. Anyone with information is asked to call Corinth police at 940-498-2017.

The Disappearance and Murder of Zoe Campos

Image result for zoe campos"

18 year old Zoe Campos disappeared from Lubbock, Texas on November 17th, 2013. Earlier that night, Zoe and her sister Savannah went out to dinner before returning to Zoe’s apartment to watch a movie. After that, Zoe told Savannah that she was going to hang out with a friend before going to pick their mother up from work. Around 1:30am, Zoe texted her mother to let her know that she was on her way to pick her up. However, Zoe never showed up and was never been seen or heard from again.

Three days later, Zoe’s aunt spotted an unknown man driving Zoe’s car. She attempted to follow the car before eventually losing sight of it. A short while later, the car was found abandoned at an apartment complex on Utica Ave. 

After speaking to Savannah, investigators learned that Zoe apparently planned to meet up with a man named Carlos Rodriguez on the evening of November 17th. Phone records corroborate this as well; the last phone call on Zoe’s phone was with a ‘Carlos Rodriguez.’ Savannah did not know this person, and the nature of Zoe’s relationship with Carlos was unknown to Zoe’s family and friends. Police were able to locate and question Carlos—he said that he and Zoe were ‘acquaintances’ who met up that night to smoke marijuana. Carlos told police that when Zoe showed up at his home, he realized that he did not have any marijuana, so Zoe left to go retrieve some—but never returned.

Carlos was initially not charged with anything related to Zoe's disappearance. Zoe's family feared she might have been trafficked. Meanwhile, Carlos stayed on the police's radar and ended up getting arrested in 2017 for an unrelated stalking charge. Years passed without any leads in Zoe's case, until 2018 when, investigators received a tip that lead them to searching a backyard of a home in Lubbock. During said search, a bone was reportedly found. It was later revealed that the bone was found on property close to Carlos' family's old home. Then, exactly five years to the day of Zoe's disappearance, Carlos was arrested and charged with her murder.

Carlos Rodriguez

Carlos' arrest warrant revealed that investigators had questioned him again from behind bars in November 2018 after the bone was found near his property. It turns out that the bone belonged to an animal, but Carlos was questioned before the origin of the bone was revealed–and he requested a lawyer after said questioning. In a jail phone call, Carlos was reportedly heard saying that he told somebody what happened to Zoe and that person had “snitched” on him. Eventually, Carlos confessed to killing her. He told investigators that, after the two of them smoked synthetic marijuana together, he “lost control” and strangled Zoe. Carlos later buried her in his backyard. After this confession, search teams returned to his property. During said search, Zoe’s remains were found and identified. 

In July 2019, Carlos wrote a handwritten letter detailing Zoe's murder. In the letter, he wrote, "after five years of fear, guilt and shame I can finally make peace with myself and God. I want the people in my community and on social media to know not just part of the truth, but the whole truth." Carlos then went on to explain that he met Zoe on November 17th, 2013. He was attracted to her initially, and invited her to come over to his house that evening. The two had sexual relations in his bedroom before smoking  K2 synthetic marijuana together. Carlos stated that the K2 caused him to hallucinate that Zoe was a demon. At that point, he attacked Zoe and choked her, eventually killing her. 

Carlos remains behind bars and the murder case proceeds.

Rest in peace, Zoe.

The Disappearance and Death of Devin Bond

17 year-old Devin Bond went missing on March 31st, 2017. He was last seen by his family the night before his disappearance, at their home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Devin was on spring break at the time, so he did not have to be at school the following morning and his parents did not think he had anything else planned. Some time during that night, while his mother was sleeping and his father was working a night shift, Devin stuffed pillows in his bed to make it look like he was asleep and snuck out of the house. He never returned home after that. Prior to this, Devin had reportedly told friends that he wanted to live “like a homeless person,” but none of said friends knew of any solidified plans that Devin had to run away.

According to his parents, Devin was leading a fairly “normal” home life and was getting good grades in school. While pondering reasons why Devin may have left his home that night, investigators learned that he had recently broken up with a girlfriend because the girl’s father did not approve of their relationship. It was theorized that Devin might’ve snuck out that night to meet up with said girlfriend and got into some sort of danger while en route, but the girlfriend was out of town at the time and that theory was quickly ruled out.

There was a possible sighting of Devin walking towards Veteran’s Parkway around 4:30am on the morning of his disappearance. This sighting is likely to be credible, because his phone pinged off a tower near that location around the same time. Devin’s phone has not pinged again after that. Volunteers searched for several days around this area, but ultimately no trace of him was found. Searches aided by drones and helicopters also did not provide any clues about Devin’s whereabouts.

In the weeks following his disappearance, Devin’s Google account was accessed numerous times. It is unknown if Devin himself was accessing it. His phone did not ping off of any towers, but it is possible that the account was accessed by computer or with the phone on airplane mode. However, all account activity stopped on April 15th, 2017. Investigators believed that it was possible that Devin was  still be in the local area, but concerns about his well-being grew significantly as two years passed without any sign of him.

On November 13th, 2019, it was reported that there was a new search for Devin at Barfield-Crescent Park. Hours after the search was reported, it was announced that human remains had been found. Devin's family has reportedly confirmed the remains are, in fact, that of Devin Bond. The investigation is still unfolding and updates will be provided as they come.

Rest in peace, Devin.

The Disappearance of Peggy McGuire

28 year-old Peggy McGuire disappeared on November 16th, 2015. That morning, she dropped her young son off at school in Eufaula, Oklahoma and then was never seen or heard from again. The next morning, in the midst of a violent storm, surveillance footage captured Peggy’s car being driven into the parking lot of T&J’s Ice House, a rural bar located 10 miles away from her home. An unidentified man was captured getting out of the driver’s seat of her car and walking away.
The car was later found abandoned. Peggy’s family members were certain that Peggy hadn’t driven there herself, even before the surveillance footage was discovered. According to Peggy’s mother, Peggy did not drink and had no reason to go to the bar. Additionally, when police searched the home that Peggy shared with her son’s father Thomas Ryan McIntosh, they found blood on the couch on their back porch. They also found bloodstains on a leather glove found in McIntosh’s truck. Despite this, McIntosh was not arrested nor was he named as a suspect in Peggy’s disappearance. Investigators apparently submitted the blood samples for forensic testing, but the results of those tests have yet to be revealed.
Two months after Peggy vanished, her mother sued for visitation rights for her grandson. McIntosh filed for paternity rights and said that he did not want Peggy’s mother to see the child. The documents filed by Peggy’s mother state that she had not seen her grandson since Peggy’s disappearance, and she feared for his safety. Additionally, the documents state that Peggy’s mother believes that her daughter is deceased. Peggy’s son was eventually removed from McIntosh’s custody and put into foster care.
Peggy remains missing today. There is currently a $150,000 reward in place for any information about her whereabouts. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.

The Disappearance of Elizabeth Hernandez

Elizabeth Hernandez 
(29) was four months pregnant when she vanished on 
November 15th, 2017. She was last seen in her hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she lived with her boyfriend Miguel Martinez. On the day she was last seen, Miguel reportedly dropped Elizabeth off at the Department of Human Services Office in Albuquerque. However, Elizabeth never signed in at the office and she never returned home afterwards. She has never been seen or heard from again.
Elizabeth left behind two children, which is uncharacteristic of her. Her family members do not believe she is missing on her own accord. In fact, Elizabeth’s sister specifically stated that she believes Miguel has more information about Elizabeth’s disappearance than he has disclosed. Miguel was the father of Elizabeth’s unborn child, and according to Elizabeth’s sister, Miguel did not want the baby. Miguel was also the last person to see Elizabeth before she vanished. Despite all of this, Miguel has not been named as a suspect in the case.
Foul play is suspected to be involved in Elizabeth’s disappearance. The Albuquerque Police Department is investigating. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please contact 505-924-6095.

The Fort Wayne Triple Shooting

Picture left to right: Danielle Carter (29), Nicole Saylor (36) and Kayla Harris (24)
Danielle, Nicole, and Kayla all worked as bartenders at the same bar in Fort Wayne, Indiana. However, they were far more than just co-workers: Danielle and Kayla were cousins, and Nicole was one of their best friends. In the early morning hours of November 9th, 2017, the three women returned to Kayla’s house after a night’s work. As they approached the front of Kayla’s house, the three women were ambushed by an unidentified man in a black hoodie and shot multiple times. Multiple neighbors witnessed the event, including a witness who saw the man fleeing from the scene before police arrived.
When paramedics arrived, Nicole was pronounced dead at the scene. Danielle and Kayla were taken to the hospital, where Kayla later died. Danielle, the lone survivor, was shot ten times: twice in the right ankle, once in the left knee, twice in the left arm, four times in the chest, which miraculously didn’t touch any of her organs, and once in the back.
The shooter remains unknown at this time, but many believe that the women were targeted. In a statement released to the public, the police announced that they had determined that the shootings were not random. Danielle, who did not see the shooter’s face, does not know who would have targeted them or why. However, she fears that whomever it was may come back to “finish” her as well. Police have not released any information about a potential suspect in the case.
Danielle is still recovering from this tragic event, physically and mentally. Since the incident, she has suffered from PTSD and panic attacks. She does not have health insurance, but still requires costly medical care for her injuries. On top of all of this, Danielle is raising five children, but is unable to work as often while she recovers physically from the shooting. Danielle’s grandmother has set up a GoFundMe account to help Danielle with her medical and living expenses. If you would like to donate, go here.
Meanwhile, the search for the shooter continues. The case is still open and being investigated and police are searching for leads. If you have any information about the identify of the gunman, please call the Fort Wayne Police Department at (260) 427-1230.

The Murder of Breana Rouhselang

17 year-old Breana Rouhselang was murdered by 16 year-old Aaron Trejo on December 9th, 2018. The two teens are from Mishawaka, Indiana–where Aaron played football at the local high school, and Breana competed as a cheerleader. Breana and Aaron first met when they were in elementary school, but they reportedly only began to have a romantic relationship during 2018. 
At some point during their relationship, Breana learned that she was pregnant. She reportedly waited until she was about 20 weeks along to tell Aaron that he had fathered her child. By then, it was too late to get an abortion. This infuriated Aaron, and he spent a week formulating a plan to solve his problem. On the evening of December 8th, Aaron asked Breana to meet up and discuss the pregnancy. Around 11pm, they met up in an alley behind her family’s home. Unbeknownst to Breana, Aaron had a knife and a garbage bag in his possession when they met. He allegedly confronted Breana over the fact that she told him about her pregnancy after it was too late to get an abortion. According to Aaron, an argument ensued and he ended up strangling Breana with her scarf before stabbing her to death. He then placed the garbage bag over her head and then placed her body in a restaurant dumpster located a block away.
After Breana’s body was found, her family members told police that she had left their home around 11pm to talk to Aaron. When police located and questioned Aaron, he initially denied meeting up with Breana that night. However, after being confronted with physical evidence, he admitted that Breana was pregnant with his child, and he was upset about it being too late for an abortion. When the detectives asked what he did about it, Aaron replied “I took action… I took her life.”
Aaron was arrested and charged as an adult with murder and feticide in connection with the death of both Breana and her unborn fetus. Despite admitting to the crime, he entered a preliminary plea of not guilty. However, in October 2019, Aaron ultimately decided to plead guilty to both the murder and feticide charges. In exchange for this guilty plea, the State has agreed to not file any additional charges against him. 

In January 2020, Aaron was sentenced to 65 years in prison. The judge sentenced him to 55 years for the murder of Breana, plus an additional ten years for the murder of their unborn child.
