UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) A Rock County man who's a possible suspect in the death of a Fitchburg woman reportedly met her when she answered his Internet ad for sex. That's according to search warrant affidavit obtained by WISC TV in Madison. The document said the 29-year-old man apparently burned Aprina Paul's body in a pit at his home near Evansville, two days after he met her.
Authorities call the man a person-of-interest in the death of the 19-year-old Paul. He was arrested for allegedly violating a previous probation. Paul's family said they last saw her October 27th when she left their home with a man they didn't know.
The Janesville Gazette cited search warrant documents stating that he took Paul to their house, where they had sex and smoked marijuana together. The paper said the man woke up the next day and found Paul dead in his bed -- and he tried reviving her but could not do so. He then reportedly hid her body in a blanket outside his garage, burned her purse and clothing, threw her cell-phone in a ditch, built a fire pit, and started burning Paul while his fiancée was out shopping. The documents said both the man and his fiancée tended to the fire that night, and he allegedly burned the body again the next day. The media stories did not indicate whether the fiancée knew Paul was in the house.
