Accused incest couple Steven and Katie Pladl, their infant dead in apparent multi-state murder-suicide – CBS News

An attorney for a man accused of having a baby with his daughter says the couple, the infant, and the woman’s adoptive father are dead

NEW MILFORD, Conn. — Police in three states are investigating the apparent murder-suicide deaths of a father and daughter accused of incest, their infant son, and the woman’s adoptive father.

Police in Knightdale, N.C. say they responded to a home around 9 a.m. where Steven Pladl, 45, and his biological daughter Katie Pladl, 20, were living when they were arrested on incest charges out of Henrico County, Va. in January. There, they found 7-month-old Bennett Pladl dead in a suspected homicide. No one else was in the home.

About 20 minutes earlier, 600 miles north in New Milford, Conn., police responded to a report of a shooting and found a man and a woman dead in a pickup truck with New York plates, the victims of a double homicide. Police developed information on a suspect vehicle, and when New York state troopers found the minivan several miles away across the state line in Dover, the suspected gunman was found inside — dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, Knightdale Police Chief Lawrence Capps confirmed the victims killed in the pickup truck were Katie Pladl and her adoptive father 56-year-old Anthony Fusco, and that the man who killed himself in New York was Steven Pladl.

Knightdale police confirmed to Crimesider that Steven Pladl is suspected in the death of his infant son in North Carolina.
