Minister Gets 56 Years For Murder To Fulfill Fantasy Of Sex With Dead Body

Minister Gets 56 Years For Murder To Fulfill Desire Of Having Sex With Dead Body

A minister from Michigan was sentenced to 56 years for the murder of his financee’s 24-year-old daughter, allegedly as part of his fantasy of having sex with a dead body.

John D. White, who had already pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the Halloween slaying of Rebekah Gay, was sentenced to a prison term of 56 to 85 years. Isabella County Chief Circuit Judge Paul Chamberlain said believed the minister, who was convicted two other times of attacking women, should never set foot outside of prison again in his life.

The minister sentenced to 56 years for murder had a close relationship with his victim. White often babysat for Gay’s young son, said a member of the small congregation he led at Christ Community Fellowship in Deerfield Township.

Prosecutors said the minister drank several beers and then went to Gay’s mobile home at 2 am on October 31, killing her by striking her in the head with a mallet and then strangling her with a zip-tie, all while her 3-year-old son was home. The minister then dumped Gay’s body in the woods and returned back to get the boy into his Halloween costume.

The minister allegedly killed gay to fulfill his desire to have sex with a dead body. White told police he undressed Gay’s body, but didn’t recall if he had sex with it or not.

Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski said White didn’t seem remorseful for his crime.

“He kept saying he’s a bad person, he’s a pastor, he felt bad for the people in his church. … I don’t recall him bring real remorseful at all with regard to the victim or anything else,” Mioduszewski said. “He just basically said he was attracted to her, thought she was a very cute girl. It’s a crazy, tragic situation.”

At the sentencing, family members recalled the heartbreaking time after White’s disappearance, when search crews combed the forest for her.

“For 20 excruciating hours we prayed that Rebekah” would come home, her mother Sally told the court. “She was not yours to take. How dare you.”

Sally went on to ask the court to show the minister the same lack of mercy that he showed her daughter. In giving the minister 56 years for the murder, Judge Chamberlain seemed to agree.

    I live 15 minutes from where this took place. Mount Pleasant Mi is a small close knit college town that has unfortunately seen some terrible crimes lately. He deserves to be in prison for this unspeakable crime.

    What a shame. A small child lost his mother and a church was being lead by a man with a mental condition. Don't get me wrong, having a mental condition isn't bad, but its how you handle it……get help or do something like this.

    I hope the bastard rots in prison, better yet, I hope he gets attacked by another prison inmate and does not survive the attack. What a sick individual to call himself a Minister. He truly is Satan's sidekick.

    Does anyone other than the lawyers that profit from him want to keep this creep alive?

    I would not live in a state that doesn't have the death penalty! What does a murderer have to lose? Seriously, this man killed another woman and was already out of prison, and for stabbing a woman he got PROBATION? It doesn't sound like a womans life is worth much in Michigan now-a-days, and I am a native of that state!

    I would like to take all the men who have any tendencies toward raping of any kind , children , women or like this sickie to the dessert and drop them off in 125 degree heat.

    Why does it say "White's disappearance?" Makes it harder to read an article with mistakes like that.

    How can you do that to someone who trusted you? God will get even!

    This man is disgusting and it's nice to see the justice system seemingly work for once (hard not to when people are detestable) However, It would be much better reading if the article seemed legitimate (you know proof reading and grammar ARE important to legitimacy and believing it's not a farce).

    and killing him is going to make him feel scared? Most people who commit murder are mentally ill the death penalty is not going to work.

    it's just the justice system everywhere "oh lets give them a wrist slap and another chance to prove they are better" These kind of stories happen all the time all over the country. I do agree though, I wish Michigan had the Death Penalty, maybe then these crazies would think twice about the acts they do as it literally means forsaking their life. But then again.. maybe they still wouldn't care, I mean this man was a minister he should fear forsaking his soul and that didn't even stop him.

    OMG! What a freak sick bastard. Maybe while in prison an inmate will strangle him with a zip tie and rape him. Karma. Such a senseless murder.

    That is a load of crud Tyson no offense, I have worked with people who are mentally ill.. Half of them wouldn't think of doing such a thing, though there are some prone to violence… However, sadly now a days all a murderer has to do is say.. Im a sick man, mentally disturbed or a woman says this.. Sadly a good number of these people are in their right mind.. They just know how to manipulate the public..

    Tyson Smashinonmidgets: I dont kare if he is straight up retarded this mofo should get death with the quickness. dont care if it works, he just need to not be breathing anymore. And not a dime of the taxpayers dollars should be wasted.

  20. Violet Rae Rains

    i think the death penalty would be an easy way out for him…he should have to live with himself, in prison, for the rest of his life..fellow prisoners dont take kindly to sick fuckers like that either..its the best punishment for him..

    this man of god should be ordered to have a sex change operation then after it's complete throw him into the most violent prison with the most violent roommate one could have. make sure he has a rap sheet of violent sexual crimes against women as long as the corridor. then this so called man of god might wish he was dead but make sure he's rescued each time so that his life can be like the movie groundhog day. get up gutterslut time to start your day all over again.
