MyNBC5: Vermont State Police have identified the human remains found in a wooded area in Highgate. Investigators identified the victim as Troy Ford, 35, of Highgate. Police said they believe Erika Guttilla, 31, of Highgate, shot and killed Ford at her family’s home on Charles Circle before last Thanksgiving. Investigators were at the home Monday collecting evidence. Police said Erika Guttilla and Ford were previously in a romantic relationship. According to court paperwork, Erika Guttilla told a friend she shot Ford in the head while he was sleeping because he beat her, raped her and picked on her brother. Police said they believe Guttilla’s mother, Carmen Guttilla, 60, of Highgate, and Corey Cassani, 28, also of Highgate, were involved with dumping Ford’s body.
Carmen Guttilla was arrested Sunday night. Erika Guttilla and Cassani were arrested about 2 a.m. Tuesday on U.S. Route 7 in South Burlington, just north of the Shelburne town line. Erika Guttilla was ordered jailed on no bail. Cassani was jailed on $25,000 bail. They were expected to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon in Franklin County Court. Carmen Guttilla was charged with aiding in the commission of a murder. She pleaded not guilty during arraignment Monday afternoon in Burlington and ordered held without bail.
Ford’s remains were taken to the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington where an autopsy determined he died from a single gunshot wound to the head. According to court paperwork, Erika Guttilla bragged to a friend about killing Ford and burying his body in her backyard. That friend told police Erika Guttilla showed him a garbage can and said Ford’s body was inside. He told investigators Erika Guttilla also showed him a blood-stained towel and mattress. Carmen Guttilla told police her daughter told her she shot Ford in the head. She also said Ford gave Erika Guttilla meth and crack.
“He has to go,” Carmen Guttilla told police her daughter said about Ford when given her mother’s gun.
Carmen Guttilla told police she found Ford’s dead body in his bed at her home. She said the body was dumped in the woods in January or February. Police said two residents walking their dogs Saturday afternoon came across what they believed to be human remains on Darlene Drive.
So, just to review:
- Drug dealing boyfriend Troy lives with girlfriend’s parents in Highgate, Vermont, which is a small town that borders Canada
- Girlfriend Erika shoots and kills him in his sleep in November at Mom’s house, allegedly because he’s abusive and she’s high on crack and meth
- New boyfriend Corey and Mom Carmen help her cover it up, and Corey dumps body in same town they live in
- Instead of leaving, or making sure the body is not discovered by random hikers in the spring, they continue to live in same house where boyfriend #1 was murdered, until the body is discovered and the cops start looking for them
- Instead of crossing the border into Canada, Erika and new boyfriend Corey travel two towns south towards Vermont’s largest and only really city, where they stay at a motel and basically guarantee they will get caught
Oh yea, this was well thought out.
When you first saw these mugshots:
You’d think this story took place in Maine. I figured Vermont was mostly earthy-cruncy, granola eating, Bernie backing wypipo.
But then you go on Erika’s Facebook page…
Yup. That’s what drugs will do to you. They get you to start banging dudes like this:
Flat brimmed hat and a chinstrap. Nuff said. Plus, he got that disease too:
Check out what Corey posted last year and tell me this isn’t freaky:
“Mess with my girlfriend and they’ll never find your body.”
Insane how he actually ended up in this exact same situation. More like, “Mess with my girlfriend, and they won’t find your body until the snow melts.”
Keep in mind, she killed this dude Troy Ford in November, when he was her boyfriend. She posted this in February, three months after she killed a dude in his sleep:
I have a date – May 9, 2018. Conjugal visit. Bring your scissoring pants.
And remember Troy Ford was her boyfriend when he killed him at her parent’s house in November. That’s why this post from January has turned into a shitshow:
Oh yea, that will help her defense. Kills boyfriend and starts new Facebook relationship with meatpuppet who disposed of the body that was easily found by hikers months later.
There’s another component to this too – Troy Ford was black:
Now his fam, who didn’t seem to look for him during the six months that he was missing, is pretending to care about him by going hambeast on Erika’s Facebook page, and calling the entire town racist in some sort of attempt at the English language:
Oh yea, after hearing from Troy’s family I think we can all agree that he was a real big loss to the community.
Corey’s ex-girlfriend decided to show up and defend his honor too:
Bitch, you got dumped for a junkie murderer. Bow your head in shame.
This shitshow is gonna make a great Lifetime movies in a few months. Can’t wait!
