A 25-year-old Las Vegas woman has been arrested in California, charged in the murder of a 71-year-old child psychiatrist who was found bludgeoned to death in the trunk of a car in Nevada earlier this month, authorities said Thursday.
Kelsey Turner was taken into custody in Stockton in for the death of Dr. Thomas Burchard, of Salinas, Calif. Her name and photo matched those that appeared on a Facebook profile that described the woman as a model who posed for racy photos, including some posted on Playboy’s Italian-language website, the Californian of Salinas reported. Authorities determined Burchard died from blunt force injury to the head. His death was ruled a homicide.
Turner was being held in the San Joaquin County Jail without bail as she awaits extradition to face a murder charge in Las Vegas.
