TWISTED:

According to unconfirmed reports, Daphne Wright, a deaf lesbian, was bad news. Wright was a Jekyll and Hyde type of personality-prone to unprovoked explosive rages.

Allegedly, she went into jealous rages and was known for severely beating up a few of her lesbian lovers and she didn’t allow anyone to talk to her girlfriends.

It has been reported but never confirmed that a restraining order had to be taken out on Wright in Maryland because of domestic violence. She would eventually relocate to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Wright met a woman (also deaf); soon they were living together.  This arrangement lasted for five years.

The woman had a friend named Darlene VanderGlesen (who was also deaf).  Wright became uncomfortable and jealous of their friendship.

Allegedly, Wright tried to intimidate and threaten VanderGlesen on several occasions but VanderGlesen remained friends with Wright’s girlfriend.

Wright arranged a meeting with VanderGlesen at a Pizza Hut parking lot.  This was the last time anyone saw VanderGlesen alive.

Police would arrest Daphne Wright and charge her with killing, dismembering and then disposing of VanderGlesen’s body.   She covered her face as she made her way to court.

According to court documents, Daphne Wright told police she was upset with Darlene VanderGlesen and believed her girlfriend was having an affair with her.

Police found pieces of bone and muscle tissue at Wright’s apartment.  They also admitted to finding the body parts of VanderGlesen in a landfill. The question remains: where are all the body parts.

Authorities say, they haven’t found the murder weapon but they did find other evidence in the landfill that helps the case.

Police can’t say how Darlene VanderGlesen was killed before her body was dismembered.

Wright is being held in jail without bond.

Ironically, close friends claim, as far as they knew, Darlene VanderGlesen wasn’t even gay.

Also, unconfirmed allegations reveal, a relative of Wright’s is currently serving a long prison sentence for stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death.

Family and friends of the deaf community gathered to remember Darlene VanderGlesen.

Hundreds came together to share the memories she left behind.  People reflected on her passion for life and her bright smile.

Her pastor, Clyde Teel said, “She didn’t like if other people were upset, every time I saw a photo of her, I saw a big smile and now she’s gone.”

Teel added, “The circumstances around this has captivated everyone.  People want to know why.  Are we left with this, with only the tragedy?”
