Greenlee, 22, was reportedly buried in a shallow grave ten days ago and her former boyfriend Ferrero put the woman there.

“I guess you don’t forget something like that,” said homicide detective Jay Fulton, who had been driving.

“The discovery was a grim end to the search for Greenlee, a woman who relatives said had left her troubled relationship with Ferrero only to return to him with the hope that they might become a family,” stated The Columbus Dispatch in their coverage.

“She was trying to get the relationship to work because of the baby,” said Estellia Sheridan, a cousin of Greenlee’s. “She was so happy about the baby.”

Ferrero, 23 on Saturday, has the ironic phrase “every path has a different outcome” tattooed on his chest and will now face murder and aggravated arson charges.

Detectives said in arrest documents that Ferrero killed Greenlee on Oct. 8 in the couple’s apartment. Police say he beat her with a baseball bat and strangled her. He buried her two days later, on the same day that the couple’s apartment burned.

During the earlier investigation, the man told authorities that the dog kicked over a candle and started the fire, but now Ferrero is believed to have started the blaze.

Homicide detectives and fire investigators questioned Ferrero repeatedly in the following days. He once left town unexpectedly but returned, and began to confess his involvement in the arson and homicide late Tuesday night, police said.

Police records show that both Greenlee and Ferrero had called police on each other several times, including once when she said he had pushed her, but there was no indicatiors of violent crime.
