TerriLynn St. John, the Middlesex mom who went missing on Tuesday morning, was found dead in a forest clearing near her residence. The authorities were led to the woman’s body by a 23-year-old man who admitted murdering the woman.
Middlesex Mom Thrown from Moving Vehicle and Strangled
According to the authorities, at the beginning of the week, 23-year-old Alvin B. Keyser was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder, concealing a body, and tampering with evidence after the man admitted to killing TerriLynn St. John.
Hours before being transferred to county jail, Keyser led the authorities to the place where he concealed St. John’s body. The investigators revealed that the Middlesex mom’s body was partially covered by leaves.
Following Keyser’s confession, the detectives managed to establish a timeline. On Tuesday morning, at around 7:30 a.m., Keyser droved to 23-year-old TerriLynn St. John’s residence to confront the woman about something.
St. John shared the house with her boyfriend and two children, ages two and one. Keyser and St. John argued in the front yard and, according to one eyewitness, the Middlesex mom was forced to get inside Keyser’s van, despite the suspect saying that she went willingly.
It would appear that the argument went on for some time inside the vehicle. At one point, Keyser admitted pushing TerriLynn out of the moving vehicle, stopping his car, and strangling her. Fearing that he might be discovered, the man concealed the body in the forest clearing.
St. John’s disappearance was discovered after he failed to show for work on Tuesday morning. Before identifying Keyser, the woman’s live-in boyfriend was considered a person of interest in the case.
Following the discovery of the body, St. John’s family and boyfriend set up a GoFundMe account to cover the funeral expenses.
