A mysterious Tweet was posted to a woman’s Twitter feed a day after she was found murdered in a park.

The haunting statement ‘Never knew I could feel like this’, was posted to Jacqueline Vandagriff’s Twitter on September 15. 

Texas Woman’s University student had been found dismembered and burned in Acorn Woods Park in Grapevine, Texas, on September 14.

Grapevine police then arrested Charles Dean Bryant, 30, near his house in Haslet on Sunday, about 20 miles from where Vandagriff’s body was found.

After officers worked around-the-clock to investigate the case in several cities in north Texas, they arrested Bryant at around 2.30pm on Sunday.

It’s not clear if the two knew each other before meeting at a bar, but around 6.45pm on September 13, Vandagriff tweeted: ‘I’m glad I decided to get off tinder and walked to a bar.’

At 8.20pm, Bryant posted to Facebook saying, ‘Just walking in the rain.. emo as f***’.

Bryant who CBS News reports as having worked at gay dance club the Urban Cowboy Saloon in Fort Worth, was seen in security footage going to two bars in Denton with Vandagriff.

First they are seen in footage leaving Fry Street Public House and later down the road leaving the Shots and Crafts bar together around 11pm.

‘We were able to talk to employees of that bar and they have us a name of a suspect, and we just followed the trail from there,’ Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling said.

Then at 10.56pm, Bryant posts on Facebook again saying: ‘Teach you tricks that will blow your mind.’

The statement is a lyric from the TV On The Radio song ‘Wolf Like Me’, which is about sex.

According to an arrest warrant, cell phone records show Vandagriff’s phone was in the vicinity of Bryant’s house around 1am that night. 

Vandagriff’s purse was also found in the trash at Bryant’s home. 

At 4.41am, Bryant is caught on security footage buying a shovel from a Walmart, according to police. 

There was evidence at this home in Haslet that someone had tried to dig a hole in the backyard.

Investigators also noticed there was a patch in the backyard, which indicated a kiddie pool had been placed there.

Another kiddie pool, similar to the one Vandagriff was found in, was in the backyard. 

Bryant’s roommate told police there used to be two kiddie pools – but only one was there when police arrived.

Two days after her murder, Bryant posted to Facebook saying: ‘Full moon.. lets see what trouble I can get into’.

In the time between Vandagriff’s death and Bryant’s arrest, the 30-year-old visited two parks, one at 6am, writing: ‘Early mornings and sleepless nights but she got you feeling alright.’

He also posted once about ‘detesting liars’ and another time saying: ‘Never let anyone else dictate your life, if you’re happy and aren’t hurting anyone, other people’s opinions don’t matter be it family, friends, strangers. 

‘Do what you want, Love who you want, Live your life!!’

Bryant had been arrested several times in the days leading up to Vandagriff’s death.

Bryant’s 18-year-old ex-girlfriend – a student at University of North Texas – had broken up with him on August 23.

The day after the breakup, Bryant showed up at his ex-grilfriend’s dorm. The woman, who he had dated for three months, called the police.

Bryant was given a criminal trespass warning on August 25.
