GRAPEVINE, Texas – Video shows a man leaving a bar with a Texas college student on Sept. 13, but it’s a Twitter post “from beyond the grave” that’s getting the attention of investigators.
The video shows Jacqueline Vandagriff leaving around 11 p.m. on Sept. 13 with Charles Bryant, who’s accused of killing the Texas Woman’s University student, dismembering her and then burning her body, reports WFAA.
Her remains were found the next morning inside a kiddie pool at a nearby park.
4 Fast Facts
- Social media posts at center of investigation into college student’s death
- Man charged with capital murder in case
- Surveillance video showed the student hanging out with suspect at a bar
- She was dismembered and her body was burned
Social media posts from Vandagriff and Bryant are at the center of the investigation. Two days before meeting Vandagriff, Bryant wrote on Facebook that he’d been running on a trail near the park where Vandagriff’s body was found.
The night the two met, he wrote on Facebook, “Teach you tricks that will blow your mind.”
The day after Vandagriff was discovered, he posted, “Full moon, let’s see what trouble I can get into.”
Investigators are also scrutinizing Vandagriff’s Twitter account. Two hours before she left the bar, she tweeted, “I’m glad I decided to get off Tinder and walked into a bar.”
But the most baffling post is dated Sept. 15—a day after her body was found. That post read, “Never knew I could feel like this.”
Bryant is charged with capital murder. According to court documents, his roommate said he had recently seen two blue kiddie pools in the backyard. Records showed Bryant bought a shovel at Walmart in the early morning hours of Sept. 14.
Bryant’s ex-girlfriend has filed charges against him for stalking and harassment, police revealed this week.
