This past Friday, 52-year-old Richard Beasley was indicted for the craigslist murders of Ralph Geiger, David Pauley, and Timothy Kern. Beasley is accused of posting a phony craigslist ad for employment at a nonexistent ranch, then killing the prospective applicants when they showed up.
The indictment states that Beasley was allegedly the triggerman in all 3 murders and the attempted murder of Scott Davis, who was able to escape his assailant.
Beasley was being held on drug and prostitution charges while investigators worked on the murder charges.
His alleged accomplice, 16-year-old Brogan Rafferty, has been charged as an adult.
