Father-daughter accused of incest found dead. Their baby is dead, too

Steven Pladl

Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, Knightdale Police Chief Lawrence Capps confirmed the victims killed in the pickup truck were Katie Pladl and her adoptive father, and that the man who killed himself in NY was Steven Pladl.

Steven Pladl was found dead in his vehicle in Dover, N.Y., several miles from the New Milford, Conn., murder scene of his daughter, Katie, and her adoptive father, officials told ABC 7.

In an interview with WTVR CBS 6, Katie Pladl's mother said she was unaware a "sexual relationship" had started between her daughter and ex-husband until she read the journal entry.

"Due to the unsafe threat to the safety of the child, police set out a plan to rescue the girl and to arrest the male", said Captain Beetge.

Two years ago, when Katie Pladl turned 18, she reached out to her biological parents through social media and "indicated a desire to get to know her birth parents", according to search warrants filed in Wake County in January. New Milford Police Lt. Lawrence Ash said officers responding to reports of gunfire Thursday morning found Katie Pladl and Buscoe dead inside the truck at an intersection on Route 7.

Police said Steven Pladl then shot and killed himself.

Mother, Katie Pladl, 20, was found dead inside of a pick-up truck in New Milford, Connecticut, along with her adoptive father, Anthony Buscoe.

The caller then said Steven admitted to killing his wife and her father. She later discovered Steven and Katie were expecting a child together. "He told me he. oh God. he told me killed his baby and he's in the house", the woman cried. Steven left his wife to marry his daughter.

Steven and Katie Pladl came to the attention of Knightdale police on January 4, when a detective with the Henrico County, Va., police notified the department about warrants involving incest.

Steven Pladl's bond restrictions had been loosened to allow him travel to North Carolina while Katie Pladl was required to live in NY with Fusco. The baby boy was born in September.

A North Carolina man who police say had an incestuous relationship with his daughter killed her as part of a triple-murder spree that spanned three states, authorities said.

The amended orders that granted them permission to leave Virginia were "based on the fact that neither of them actually had a Virginia residence", Davenport said.

The dad, 38, was seen dangling his terrified and screaming one-year-old daughter by her ankle perilously over the side of a building. "We are heartbroken, saddened over the death of this child, and like you, we are trying to make sense of all of the factors that led up to this senseless taking of life". She said she believed Steven brainwashed and manipulated Katie.

Steven Pladl's mother called 911 to conduct a welfare check on his Knightdale, N.C. home after having a disturbing conversation with her son, Knightdale Police Chief Lawrence Capps said.

The baby was found dead, and no one else was in the home.
