GRACE PACKER: Mother and boyfriend charged with raping and murdering 14-year-old *GUILTY*

    I don't know if this is where this should be posted. But, this story is so horrific, I want to keep up with it through trial.


    BUCKS COUNTY >> A 44-year-old Horsham man was taken into custody Saturday night in connection with the gruesome killing of Abington teen Grace Packer, whose dismembered body was discovered in October months after being reported missing by her adoptive mother, and new details in the case alleged by Bucks County authorities Sunday were, in a word, horrific.

    Jacob Patrick Sullivan, of the 400 block of Summit Avenue, was arraigned in Newtown district court in the early morning hours of Jan. 8 on 19 criminal counts, including homicide, rape, kidnapping, abuse of a corpse and conspiracy, then committed to Bucks County jail after bail was denied.

    Investigators said that Sullivan has confessed to beating, raping, drugging, tying up and then suffocating the 14-year-old girl in July — all with the help of Packer’s mother, 41-year-old Sara Packer, with whom he was in a relationship, authorities said — as part of a rape-murder plot the pair had planned for nearly a year.

    Sara Packer was also charged Saturday with 17 criminal counts, including homicide, kidnapping, abuse of a corpse, several counts of conspiracy and other offenses, and was expected to be arraigned in district court on Sunday afternoon.

    Sullivan and Packer allegedly concealed the slain girl’s body in the attic of their Quakertown home for several months before dismembering her and dumping the remains nearly 100 miles away in a wooded area in Luzerne County in October, where they were found by hunters on Oct. 31, authorities said.

    Packer, who was declared a “person of interest” in the case at a Dec. 22 press conference held jointly by Bucks, Montgomery and Luzerne county authorities, had been jailed in November on child endangerment and misdemeanor obstruction charges filed by prosecutors who alleged she “withheld critical information and gave misleading statements to police after reporting her daughter missing, inhibiting efforts to locate her.”

    However, Packer was freed from custody on Dec. 23 after posting bail.

    How horrific! How can anyone keep a body in their house that long, let alone the cruel killing itself! :eek:

    ... and they thought by dumping Grace 100 miles away that no-one would find her. How wrong they were.
    ... and their suicide pact didn't work.
    They are just beyond horrible. Evil. :jail:

    These people remind me of the hell Cody Haynes went through. Pisses me off big time!

    I'll never understand torture. In fact, the more I read about it, the harder it is for me to kill an insect! It's like I'm even more horrified. It doesn't get easier by any means!

    Adoptive mother of slain 14-year-old Grace Packer charged with stealing government checks

    Sara Packer, the 42-year-old woman accused of participating in the torturous rape and slaying of her adopted daughter, 14-year-old Grace Packer, is facing a fresh batch of charges after authorities said she continued to cash government benefits and subsidies checks meant for the care of her daughter after the girl was killed.

    This one just cant seem to help herself, can she. :mad:

    From the same link:
    Packer, who remains behind bars without bail at Bucks County jail, is also facing 17 other criminal counts, including homicide, kidnapping, conspiracy to commit rape, abuse of a corpse, and more.
    Court records indicate she has waived her preliminary hearing in the case, which had been scheduled for Feb. 24, sending all 20 criminal counts to county court for trial.
    Her formal arraignment is set for March 10.

    Sullivan, charged with 19 criminal counts including homicide, rape, conspiracy, kidnapping, abuse of a corpse and other offenses, was still scheduled as of Monday to appear at the Bucks County
    courthouse on Feb. 24 for his preliminary hearing.
    He, too, is currently being held without bail at Bucks County jail.
