With Eric Glover's and Terrance Rankins' lifeless bodies lying in the Hickory Street house where they'd been strangled, Alisa Massaro, Bethany McKee, Adam Landerman and Joshua Miner concocted a plan to dismember them and get rid of the bodies, according to police reports obtained by Patch.
First, they ditched the car Glover and Rankins drove to the house, leaving it in an apartment parking lot on Madison Street near Presence St. Joseph Medical Center, police said.
They then headed to Walgreens for soda and beef jerky, according to the police.
The four accused killers considered putting the bodies in the vehicle and torching it, police said, but figured that would draw too much attention.
Massaro reportedly told detectives she and her friends discussed chopping up Rankins and Glover and “dumping them in water or another location.”
Landerman explained to police the “idea was to place them all into separate garbage bags and to find a town far from their location and figure out what day garbage day was and drive down the street” disposing of the remains, a report stated.
McKee reportedly revealed “they were going to cut up the bodies and that they were going to cut the fingers, hands, and the arms off of each of them.”
She also told officers that Miner “wanted to keep the teeth of both deceased as trophies from killing them after they had cut up the bodies,” a report said.
Landerman reportedly also told police how McKee drove him to the Glenwood Avenue home of his grandmother, where he also lived, on the morning of Jan. 10. He took a nap about 9:30 a.m., woke around 1 in the afternoon and gathered “supplies,” including rubber gloves, bleach, a saw and a blow torch, a report said. He was unable to procure garbage bags, police said.
“He told (Miner) to get the garbage bags himself,” a report said, then waited for McKee, who picked him up and brought him back to the death house.
They never got to carry out their plan to cut up the bodies, according to investigators, because McKee's father, William McKee, phoned police after his daughter asked him for help getting rid of the bodies.
