Pennsylvania experienced one of the most shocking moments, after a woman was charged with the murder of her own parents after her dismembered bodies were found in her Jenkintown home.
Verity Beck, 43, is charged with first degree murder and third degree murder and is being held without bail.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said police arrived at the home Tuesday night and found Reid Beck, 73, and Miriam Beck, 72, dead there.
According to the criminal complaint, her son came home earlier in the evening and saw what appeared to be a body under a blanket.

Investigators say he spoke to her sister for about 30 minutes, where she confessed that things in the house “had been bad.” Later, he called 911.
Officers entered the home and found a body wrapped in a white sheet, and Steele said there was evidence of a second person deceased.

“There were signs of extreme trauma present,” Steele said.

Police say that when officers entered the home they asked Verity Beck, “where are your parents?” She supposedly replied, “they’re dead.”
A chainsaw was located near one of the bodies, Steele said, and both victims were in “various stages of dismemberment.”

“Verity used this chainsaw and put parts of her parents in garbage bags and covered them up. They were actually in two different trash cans,” Steele said.

The coroner determined that both victims died from a gunshot wound to the head.
Police also say officers found a large safe in the second-floor master bedroom that had puncture marks. Investigators say it appears that someone without a key or combination had been trying to gain access to it.
According to the criminal complaint, investigators believe the couple was likely killed on January 7 after finding unread newspapers with that date. That was also the last time her son had voice contact with his mother.
