Men bombed woman’s dream house, wanted python to ‘eat’ daughter: Georgia authorities

RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WSAV) — Two men accused of bombing a woman’s dream home in Georgia also plotted to have a “python eat the victim’s daughter,” according to prosecutors.

The suspects — identified as 37-year-old Stephen Glosser and 34-year-old Caleb Kinsey — were indicted on March 7 on multiple federal charges in connection with the bombing that occurred in Richmond Hill last year.

Investigators said the men used an explosive device involving Tannerite that ultimately blew up part of the woman’s home on Jan. 13, 2023. No one was injured in the explosion.

While a motive is unclear, NBC News reported that one of the men “had a prior relationship” with the woman, though the extent of that relationship was not disclosed.

According to prosecutors, the suspects used surveillance equipment to spy on the victim from December 2022 until the time of the bombing, and they created “a plan to kill, intimidate, harass, or injure” her in various ways — like shooting arrows into her door.

The pair also planned to release a “large python into the home to eat the victim’s daughter,” mail dog feces or dead rats to the victim’s home and scalp the victim, court documents allege.

In an interview with Nexstar’s WSAV last year, the victim, Larissa Apperson, said she and her daughter had only lived in their new home for less than 12 hours before the explosion.

“This home on Demeries Lake was my dream home… I am absolutely devastated by what happened. I am still in disbelief,” Apperson previously said, adding that she was planning to rebuild the part of her house that was destroyed.

Glosser and Kinsey have since been charged with stalking, using an explosive to commit a felony, conspiracy to use an explosive to commit a felony, and possession of an unregistered destructive device. Kinsey also faces additional charges of making false statements during the purchase of a firearm and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.

The conspiracy charge carries a statutory penalty of up to 20 years in prison with an added 10 years if convicted for the charge of using an explosive to commit a felony.
