Court officials watched today as serial killer George Brinkman, of Ohio, cried after pleading guilty to murdering a mother and her two daughters in their bedroom last week.
George Brinkman slit the throat of 45-year-old of Suzanne Taylor, smothered her 21-year-old daughter Taylor Pifer and strangled her youngest daughter, 18-year-old Kylie Pifer, at their house in North Royalton on Saturday.
The women were dead for more than 24 hours before authorities were able to discover the bodies.
New court records show that Taylor and Brinkman knew each other since high school and even graduated together.
The Daily Mail reports:
An alleged serial killer charged with murdering a mother and her two daughters at their Ohio home last week sobbed in court on Thursday as prosecutors recounted how he used a different twisted method to kill each of the women.
Prosecutors say George Brinkman slit the throat of 45-year-old of Suzanne Taylor, smothered her 21-year-old daughter Taylor Pifer and strangled her youngest daughter, 18-year-old Kylie Pifer, at their house in North Royalton on Saturday.
The women were found lined up side by side, lying face down in a bed inside the home when Taylor’s boyfriend went to check on them the following day.
Their bodies were ‘cold to the touch’ and they may have been dead for more than 24 hours, a newly released police report reveals.
Friends later revealed that Brinkman and Taylor were long-term friends and had graduated high school together. Her relatives said that he was interested in her romantically, wanting ‘more’ from their friendship.
Brinkman, 45, was arrested on Tuesday morning in Brunswick, Ohio, 50 miles away after an eight-hour siege with police.
At Thursday’s court hearing – his first appearance since he was arrested following an eight-hour standoff with police on Tuesday – his bond was set at $75million.
He is also suspected for the murders of his former girlfriend’s parents, Gene and Bobbi John, who he was house-sitting for near his home in North Cranton.
