Texas Man Charged with Capital Murder After Killing College Student

Authorities finally found the man guilty of murdering a student from Texas Woman's University, according to the New York Daily News.

Jacqueline Vandagriff, 24, was found by firefighters last week in a park in Grapevine, Texas. Her body had been dismembered, burned and thrown in a kiddie pool. Investigators allege that Charles Dean Bryant is responsible. The 30-year-old was seen at a local bar with Vandagriff the night before her body was discovered. 

Cell tower data led police to Bryant's house in Haslet, which they investigated over the weekend. They found Vandagriff's purse in the trash. After more evidence was found, Bryant was charged with capital murder, a sentence that makes him eligible for the death penalty. However, this isn't his first run-in with the law. According to the NY Daily News, Bryant was previously arrested for forgery, possession of marijuana and stalking a woman at the University of North Texas.

Investigators are looking into both Vandagriff's and Bryant's social media handles to potentially find out more about their relationship, if there even was a connection between the two before the night of the murder. NBC reported that Bryant posted this extremely creepy Facebook update as he was leaving the bar with Vandagriff: "Teach you tricks that will blow your mind".

Even creepier, a day after her body was found, there was activity on her Twitter account. A Tweet posted to her account read: "Never knew I could feel like this".

In the days leading up to her murder, Vandagriff also tweeted "I was probably going to back out anyways, but I'm pretty sure I just dodged a catfish" and "I'm glad I decided to get off tinder and waked to a bar." So far, investigators have not released any information on the significance behind these tweets in relation to Vandagriff's murder, but CBS News reports, "Grapevine police said they are aware of the tweet and are investigating."
