Monday, October 10, 2011
MARYSVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- A man suspected with his girlfriend in at least three deaths across the Northwest says he killed his father because he molested his older sister when she was younger.
David Joseph Pedersen told The Appeal Democrat that he killed David Jones Pedersen because it was "his responsibility to make sure it didn't happen again."
The elder Pedersen was reported missing after his wife was found dead on Sept. 28 at their home in Everett, Wash.
Authorities believe the younger Pederson killed the woman and also an Oregon teen whose car Pederson was driving when he and girlfriend Holly Grigsby were arrested in California.
David Joseph Pedersen says he takes "full responsibility" for the crimes reported in the media and for a fourth unreported death.
