Posted November 2, 2016
Salisbury, N.C. — Sandy Parsons, the adoptive father of Erica Parsons, admitted to investigators that he physically abused her before her death, according to a search warrant obtained by NBC Charlotte Wednesday.
The warrant is dated Sept. 27, 2016, just two days before Erica Parsons’ remains were found by police in Chesterfield County, S.C.
The warrant says that Sandy Parsons admitted that Erica was dead and that he described his treatment of her and the disposal of her body. Parsons told police that the girl’s body was buried on Dec. 19, 2011, and said her body was located near his mother’s home in Pageland, S.C.
According to the warrant, Sandy Parsons was unable to tell investigators where Erica’s body was located but agreed to lead them to where her remains were discovered.
During multiple interviews conducted by police, it was determined that Erica was tortured before her death. Treatment included locking her in a closet, beating her with a belt buckle, bending her fingers back and choking her.
