A Pennsylvania resident stands accused in his girlfriend’s disappearance, after reportedly describing police officials he drove her to Las Vegas declaring a vacation but actually meant to kill his girlfriend.
The missing woman, thirty-three-year-old Jamie Rae Feden, supposedly died in the Nevada desert following John Matthew Chapman says that, under the pretense of taking Feden’s photographs, Chapman bound her to a signpost, then strangled her with duct tape over her jaws and nose, according to the police report, the sources report.
A corpse found October 5 in Lincoln County, Nevada, has not been recognized, and Feden continues missing, say police who on Friday, November 15 announced the capture of Chapman, 39-year-old, on charges of abduction, preventing administration of law and criminal use of a communication facility.
Chapman is being kept in the Allegheny County jail without bond and is “under examination for homicide.”
“We are still actively operating to discover Jaime Feden,” Bethel Park police officials said Friday in a report posted to the agency’s social media page on facebook.
Feden has not been viewed since September 15.
According to the criminal complaint, Jamie Feden holds a “tumultuous” history with Chapman, but she nevertheless traveled with Chapman in late September to Las Vegas for the alleged holiday and the added “potential of acquiring residence” there, the sources report.
“At some period on or about September 25, 2019, the suspect persuaded the victim to drive into the desert under the pretense of engaging in an S&M themed photoshoot,” the missing report states.
The corpse found in Nevada had “many of the unique physical characteristics” connected to Feden, according to the report. A coroner’s statement is to be expected.
Chapman supposedly portrayed Feden on social media to make it resemble she was living but desired no communication with her family, and provided police false knowledge about her location to prevent a missing person probe after her family warned authorities she was missing on Thursday, as per the complaint.
A solicitor who might deliver on Chapman’s account was not classified in court reports.
