Man who impregnated daughter kills her, her adoptive father

Officials said Steven Pladl used an "assault-type weapon" similar to an AR-15. After a brief reunion in June of 2016, Steven separated from Katie's biological mother, Alyssa, and began an incestuous affair with their daughter.

A man who fathered a child with his biological daughter is dead, suspected of killing the woman, their infant son and the woman's adoptive father before taking his own life. The baby was put in the custody of Steven Pladl's mother in Cary.

Stay with Spectrum News as this story develops. Authorities said the motive for the shooting was under investigation.

The identities of those killed were confirmed by Steven Pladl's attorney, Rick A. Friedman II, reported WTVR.

New York State Police received a notice to be on the lookout for a "light blue mini-van with North Carolina registration", according to a state police release. He had apparently fatally shot himself.

"The pending autopsy exam and toxicology report are expected to shed more details on the manner and cause of death", Knightdale police said.

While the couple of recent breakup could have spurred Thursday's murders, the exact reason for the shooting would be under analysis, New Milford Police Lt. Lawrence Ash said.

It all began about two decades ago. He said Katie Pladl had been living in NY with her adoptive parents.

Pladl was granted bail but ordered not to leave Virginia.

Alyssa discovered the forbidden relationship after reading the diary of Katie's younger sister.

"There are no words to describe the sense of betrayal and disgust I'm feeling", Alyssa Pladl said.

So police were ready below to catch the girl when the angered father carried out his threat, swinging the girl by her leg over the edge.


Steven and his former wife had Katie in 1998.

The kid had been found dead inside Pladl's home in Knightdale, N.C. precisely the exact same moment. The two were arrested out of incest charges from Henrico.

They were both charged with incest, adultery, and contributing to delinquency and bonded out of jail. "He said he was going to bring the baby to her and then he's coming back". She was allowed to travel out of state. Pladl's mother said he was upset because the woman had broken up with him.

A great white shark's Hollywood closeup, the plan to split California into three states and San Francisco 49er Reuben Foster's court appearance are all in today's Current.

Police who were called to the residence by Steven's mother asking them to perform a welfare check at 9am, came upon the boy's lifeless body. Police found the bodies of Anthony Fusco and Katie Pladl inside a pickup truck.

"He left the baby dead", the caller said.

Throughout the time the capturing was reported, police in Knightdale found the physique of the kid, Bennett Pladl.

Friedman said there wasn't a suspicion that the child was in peril.

New Milford police said Friday that the gunman opened fire with an assault-type rifle from a auto and shot the victims multiple times in the head and upper torso. Over the course of the day, Steven Pladl was also located, Capps said.

"[Thursday's] events were sad and devastating", said Chief Capps.

Fortunately, the courageous officer on the roof had warned colleagues down below that the youngster could drop at any second, so they were ready to catch her. "We are heartbroken, saddened over the death of this child".
