Images shows TWU student with murder suspect on last night seen alive

Tarrant County prosecutors presented surveillance video evidence showing a murder victim with the man on trial for her killing.

Jacqueline Vandagriff, 24, was murdered in September 2016. The images include Vandagriff with Charles Bryant together at two bars in Denton the last night she was seen alive.

The jury saw several videos presented the state that shows Bryant and Jacqueline Vandagriff together then just Bryant by himself.

Prosecutors say videos show Bryant and Vandagriff meeting in a Denton bar called The Public House and leaving together. Later video shows them at Shots & Crafts Bar a few doors down.

Sherry Bogue testified she saw Bryant and Vandagriff at both bars. She told the jury she talked with Vandagriff who told her she was stood up by a date she made on a dating app.

"She said she was abandoned by a Tinder date. She was there alone at the bar,” Bouge said. “We were all like, ‘Are you okay?’ She said she met that man, and he was being nice enough. There were no red flags.”

After leaving the bars, the state says one video faintly shows two people getting into a car they contend were Vandagriff and Bryant.

Prosecutors say other videos show the two were still together later at a Denton 7-Eleven. After that, Vandagriff is not seen again.

Bryant is alone when prosecutors say he is seen at about 4:30 that morning in a Walmart in Haslet buying a shovel. Later, the state says video from a Fort Worth 7-Eleven shows Bryant buying gasoline in a plastic container.

Just before dawn, prosecutors say a home surveillance camera shows Bryant's car leaving a park near Grapevine Lake. Prosecutors say Bryant had killed Vandagriff and set fire to her dismembered body.

Defense attorneys haven't presented their side yet, but have told the jury Vandagriff died during consensual sex. And instead of calling police, Bryant panicked and tried to dispose of her body.
