Who is Brianna Wassillie? Homeless woman charged with strangling two men to death on the same day
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA: A homeless woman in Alaska has been charged with murder for allegedly strangling two men in one day. The woman, identified as Brianna Star Wassillie, was accused of two killings that occurred on July 3 which included the choking of a man with the strings of his own hoodie. While the police explained that the actual motive behind these crimes is unknown, they did share a chilling detail that Wassillie let out.
Wassillie was charged with the July 3 slayings that included choking one victim with the strings of his own hoodie, the Anchorage Daily News reported, citing a police complaint. "She had repeatedly wondered what it would be like to take a life. She admitted to killing several animals over the years — torturing them and taking videos of this," Assistant District Attorney Alice Curci said.

According to the complaint, on July 3, Wassillie had beaten up 34-year-old Gregory Pitka in a parking lot because the victim refused to steal her alcohol. She later returned to allegedly choke him to death. Following his death, she sexually assaulted Pitka and then covered his body with a blanket before leaving, the complaint states. Pitka's body wasn't found until July 5.
Later that same day, Wassillie found her second victim, identified as Travis Sheldon, in the woods and shared a beer with him before taking it away. She then allegedly strangled him as well, the prosecutor said.

The 24-year-old woman is facing murder charges in the brutal deaths in the Sand Lake neighborhood. It was confirmed that she did not have any criminal history and was allegedly homeless. The police were able to connect her to the murders only when they found a letter along with Pitka’s ID behind the Walmart on the Old Seward Highway in South Anchorage, describing the murder. Wassillie admitted to the murder when brought to police headquarters. It’s unclear if the alleged killer knew her victims.

As of now, it's unclear what Wassillie was doing in the Sand Lake neighborhood and if she had any prior connections with Gregory Pitka and Travis Sheldon. On two charges of first-degree murder, she is being held at the Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River, and one misdemeanor count of misconduct involving a corpse. Her bail is set at $500K cash and $500K cash appearance by Anchorage District Court Judge David Nesbett. The conditions also include third-party custodian, pretrial enforcement division monitoring, and no alcohol. The alleged killer wore an orange jail uniform with her hands cuffed, and according to Curci, the murders were "entirely senseless,” and that she “is an absolute danger to the community.”
