The woman killed her relatives and dismembered the bodies with a saw
A 49-year-old woman is accused of shooting her parents to death in their Pennsylvania home, then dismembering their bodies.
Officials arrested Verity Beck and charged her with killing her parents, Reed and Miriam Beck, who were in their early 60s, NBC Philadelphia reported Wednesday:
The couple’s son walked past his parents’ home in the 1100 block of Beverly Road in the Jenkintown section of Abington Township around 8 p.m. Tuesday. The man then told investigators that although he had been receiving text messages from his parents for the past 10 days, he had not heard their voice or received a single phone call from his mother since January 7.
The man noticed that his parents’ cars were parked outside the house and that all the lights inside were off. He then returned home and decided to bring soup to his sister Verty Beck, who lived with her parents in the Jenkintown house, because she was complaining of being sick.
Later, when he returned home, he went inside and found a body wrapped in a blood-stained sheet on the bedroom floor, which he assumed was his father.
Verity Beck told her brother that the situation at home was “bad,” but she needed more time to notify law enforcement. However, he went home and called the police.
The woman was said to have been in the house with the bodies for a week fragmented their:

When the officers entered the home that night, they announced themselves and Verti Beck informed them that her parents had died.
Inside the house, authorities found a human leg covering the body with a blanket, a nearby bee, blood on the door and two trash cans. Officials secured the home and obtained a search warrant.
Detectives later found the body of a man with a severed head and a 55-gallon trash can containing the severed body parts. They also found a bullet-riddled pillow and other body parts in the garage.
In the video, police can be seen leaving the side door of the house carrying large black bags:
“He is the one who dismembers his mother and father and puts the body parts in the garbage cans. It’s clear he’s trying to get rid of the evidence of his crime,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele (R) said.
Another clip shows authorities removing a large trash can wrapped in a red bag from a home:
Inside the home, officials found three guns with empty cartridges. Two firearms are registered to the name of the suspect.
An autopsy found the couple died of gunshot wounds to the head, and officials concluded the suspect may have put a pillow over their faces before shooting them and dismembering their bodies with a chainsaw.
Authorities are holding Werty Beck in the Montgomery County Correctional Facility as part of the ongoing investigation. However, they have not yet released a probable cause statement in the case.
At the same time, the officials reported description “horrible” and “sad” situation.
