If you guessed murdering the woman mentioned in his neck tattoo, “Melanie”, you could join the Connecticut police department as a detective. Adam Plaeger, 38, is accused of strangling to death his girlfriend, Melanie Heuberger.
Of course, having the name of your girlfriend on your neck could be a simple statement of love rather than some admission of guilt. The bigger problem would be finding Melanie in the closest of the second floor apartment that the couple shared.
The tattoo with the name “Melanie” inscribed over a blue flower will certainly add an odd element to the trial for murder. Plaeger is being held on a $1 million bond.
