This is so awful! He was just trying to help!!
Harold Sasko, who owned a chain of pizza restaurants in Kansas, took in 19-year-old Sarah Gonzales McLinn as an employee AND let her move into his home in 2012 so she could distance herself from a life of drugs and gang member friends.
On January 14, for unknown reasons, Sarah apparently knocked Harold unconscious with "an edged weapon," subdued him and then proceeded to beat him to death before fleeing over 1,600 miles into the Florida Everglades. She was eventually caught by park rangers for camping after hours and drug possession.
Originally, they thought Sarah was missing and possibly a victim, but now the truth is coming out.
She is going to be prosecuted for first-degree murder as officials say she had "premeditation and intent," and they "have not ruled out other possible charges."
This man was only trying to help her…
So horrible!!! We hope justice is served.
