Daphne Wright Arrested and Charged with Murder of Darlene VanderGiesen

Daphne Wright was arrested and charged with first degree murder of missing Darlene VanderGiesen. Authorities have been searching the landfill for the missing VanderGiesen as they believe she may have been dumped in the trash.

Court papers indicate that Daphne Wright removed carpet and cement blocks from a basement bedroom at her home. Her roommate told police that Wright had left the house with a large plastic garbage bag and may have put the items in a dumpster in the neighborhood.

The home of suspect Daphne Wright was also searched according to court documents and from items found she was arrested.

There, according to court papers, police found samples of human bone, muscle and fat. They matched the DNA from those samples to the DNA of Darlene VanderGiesen. “Evidence found so far has supported an arrest warrant for Miss Wright,” says Sioux Falls Police Chief Doug Barthel.

Court papers show the two women are deaf and knew each other, but the relationship was anything but friendly. Days before VanderGiesen went missing, police say Wright sent VanderGiesen a demeaning and profane message. Wright thought her girlfriend was cheating on her with VanderGiesen.
