Pennsylvanian fur's body found buried in boyfriend's yard
The body of what is believed to be Pennsylvanian furry fan Donna See, also known as Sasha Tigress, has been found behind the house of her boyfriend, who she met last October on dating website PlentyOfFish.
Donna of McKeesport, 60, an driver for the elderly, had not been seen since August 14. Her journal shows attendance at Anthrocon and FA: United; according to a fellow fan, she had attended meets since 2005.
George Biegenwald of Shayler, 57, has been charged with criminal homicide, abuse of a corpse, and evidence tampering. He said that he and Donna quarreled about her wish to move in, had been drinking, and got into a fight at his house, in which she hit her head on a dresser after he "flipped her off his back".
Friend and co-worker Margie Byers, who led a campaign to find Donna, doubts George's version of events, calling Donna "one of the most timid people I've ever met", and saying she'd noticed bruises on Donna in the weeks running up to the incident.
George initially said Donna had left on Friday 14th, returned on Saturday night, and left on Sunday night. Police noted that "a large amount of blood" had been found in his bedroom, and eventually he admitted that Donna started to bleed after the impact, claiming that he tried to stop the bleeding and revive her before placing her in his bathtub, where she died. He said that he moved Donna's body to her car, then to a basement refrigerator, before burying her in his backyard and abandoning her car in Homewood.
A medical examination showed "massive trauma to the front, back and left side" of the victim's head. The accused had a history of assaulting women, and was arrested for aggravated assault last Tuesday, after another woman was taken away from his house in an ambulance the day before.
