Isabella County Community Struggles With Rebekah Gay's Murder

Posted: Updated:

People living in Rebekah Gay's community are shocked, wondering why someone would kill their 24-year-old neighbor.

Police say a Mt. Pleasant Pastor, John Douglas White, admitted to beating and strangling Rebekah early Halloween morning, while her 3-year-old son was in the home.

He then got the boy dressed in his Halloween costume and dropped him off at his father's home.

Police found Rebekah's body in the woods, near the corner of Pickard and Coldwater Roads, near Mt. Pleasant yesterday morning.

9&10's Kyle Mitchell spoke with neighbors last night and has more details.
