MT. PLEASANT (WKZO) -- He was an evil man with a penchant for attacking pretty young woman, killing two of them and nearly killing a third.
Now John White has hung himself in prison.
Just how evil was he? White became a pastor to gain the trust of the women around him after serving 12-years for manslaughter for killing Vickie Wall of Galesburg. As a teen, he attacked a Battle Creek girl with a knife, stabbing Theresa Morris 15 times. She survived.
Last Halloween in Mt. Pleasant, White became obsessed with having sex with a dead woman, so he killed 24-year-old Rebekah Gay, his girlfriend’s daughter by hitting her in the head with a mallet and then strangling her with a zip-tie.
Then he calmly got her child ready to go out trick or treating with his dad.
Then he disposed of the body.
For that he got life, a life he decided to cut short with this week’s suicide.
