Mysterious tweet appears on woman’s Twitter account a day after she was murdered


Police have arrested a man for the murder of a Texas college student whose body was found last week, dismembered and burned in a plastic kiddie pool in a park. The day after the woman’s body was discovered, a mysterious tweet appeared on her Twitter account that read, “Never knew I could feel like this.”

Grapevine, Texas, authorities told KHOU.com they were investigating the tweet as part of the investigation into the man charged in her death. 

Charles Dean Bryant, 30, was being held on $1 million bond on a charge of capital murder in the death of Jacqueline Vandagriff. He was released from jail on a stalking charge days before meeting Vandagriff, 24, at a bar Sept. 13. Her body was found the next morning.

According to an arrest warrant, Vandagriff, a nutrition student at Texas Woman’s University, is seen on a security video meeting Bryant at the bar in Denton, where the school is located. They are later seen going to another bar, then leaving together at about 9:45 p.m., according to the warrant.

Video evidence showed Bryant buying a shovel at 4:41 a.m. at a Walmart, and there was evidence at his home that someone had tried to dig a hole in the ground, according to the arrest warrant.

Officials responding to a fire about 6:30 a.m. found Vandagriff's body in a plastic kiddie pool in a park in Grapevine. The arrest warrant says a witness saw a man standing over the fire before leaving.
