Criminal Profiler Discusses Isabella County Murder Case

Posted: Updated:

It is difficult to even begin to make sense of the brutality of how Rebekah Gay was murdered.

Many people wonder what drove someone to kill the 24-year-old Isabella County woman.

We spoke with criminal profiler Steve Thompson at Central Michigan University to get a better understanding of the case. He says this case appears premeditated and not a spur of the moment decision. The way Rebekah was killed is considered unique along with the 30 year age difference with suspect John White.

Thompson says he would be shocked if more people did not come forward with information on John White's past.

9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and photojournalist Tony Zyber have more on the case.
