The adoptive mother of a teen girl in Pennsylvania, as well as the woman’s boyfriend, have been arrested for the unthinkable…and more.
14-year-old Grace Packer’s body was dismembered, reportedly for money. Her adoptive mother, Sara Pack, and her boyfriend, 44-year-old Jacob Sullivan, were arrested for it.
“We believe the evidence will prove that this was a rape-murder fantasy that was shared by Jacob Sullivan and Sara Packer,” Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub told a news station, “and they made this fantasy into a horrible, heinous, gruesome reality.
“It’s unspeakable. When I leave here today, I’m going to go home and I’m going to hug and kiss my two daughters and tell them how much I love them, because I feel like that’s one of the only ways I can redeem my belief in humanity,” he added.
On December 30th, Jacob and Sara, according to court documents, attempted to commit suicide together by overdosing on drugs at their home in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.
Family members found them before they died.
Police say that it was in the hospital that Jacob cracked. He’s said to have confessed to the entire thing.
“Their motive to perpetuate the lie that she was still alive was profit, greed,” Weintraub said. “It was for the money that they could collect because of her life and very existence.”
On July 8th, the duo took young Grace from Sara’s home in Abington to their new home in Quakertown. There, the girl allegedly endured sexual assault and being drugged.
Sullivan says he then strangled her.
Sara Packer reported her missing, saying she’d run away following an argument.
Jacob and Sara then purportedly became more and more fearful of being caught, so they dismembered her body with a saw and dumped the remains in Bear Creek Township.
Those remains were then found by two hunters on Halloween near an out-of-the-way road.
Both have been ordered held without bail.
