Court documents revealed Rachael Anderson was tortured, and the suspect was accused of using her car and debit card to steal money from her bank account.

Anderson had recently moved to Columbus to study to be a mortician. She was discovered "concealed" in a closet in her east Columbus apartment on January 29th.
Court documents showed she died of asphyxiation.


The suspect has a violent criminal past going back decades, including convictions for attempted murder, robbery, and rape in Franklin County in 1982.

Man accused of killing aspiring funeral director has long criminal history
Published: February 9, 2018, 6:21 pm

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Anthony Pardon, 53, has spent nearly half his entire life in prison.

Pardon went to prison in 1982 after pleading guilty to rape, aggravated robbery and attempted murder. Court documents describe him using a knife in crimes against two women in separate incidents.

According to information read aloud in court Friday morning at Pardon’s arraignment, he tried to drown one of his victims in 1981. He had raped the woman in her home, tied her hands and feet and ordered her into the trunk of her car. Pardon than drove to the Valleydale Ballroom on Sunbury Rd and tried to drown the woman in Alum Creek. She fought back and survived. He went to prison for 25 years and was released in November of 2006.

In the Linden neighborhood where Anthony Pardon lived, residents say they got a letter a couple of months ago notifying them of a sexual predator living nearby.

Pardon is one of three registered sex offenders in the neighborhood.

Pardon, spared by jury from death, gets 2 life sentences plus 63 years for murder, rape

Posted Mar 16, 2020 at 3:02 PM

Trish Anderson spoke for nearly 25 minutes Monday in a Franklin County courtroom to eulogize her “smart, funny, witty, zany, unique” daughter and condemn the man who took her daughter’s life as “an evil monster.”

She told the court about the 24-year-old woman who grew up in Warren in northeast Ohio, graduated with a degree from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science and was training to become a funeral director at Shaw-Davis Funeral Homes in Columbus, where she had made countless friends in a short time.

“My daughter is Rachael Nicoletta Anderson,” she said. “She is not case number 18CR00769. That always bothered me.”

After she spoke, Anthony J. Pardon was sentenced to life without parole for raping and murdering Rachael Anderson during a break-in at her East Side apartment.

The sentence, imposed by Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Stephen L. McIntosh, was in keeping with the recommendation of a jury of eight women and four men who spared the 55-year-old Pardon from the death penalty after convicting him of the crimes in February.

McIntosh also gave Pardon an additional life sentence for the physical harm caused during the rape. And he tacked on 63 years for kidnapping, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary, as well as finding that Pardon qualified as a repeat violent offender.

McIntosh admitted that even he was startled by the brutality of the crime when prosecutors first projected on a courtroom screen a crime-scene photo of the victim’s body, gagged and hogtied and stuffed in a bedroom closet.

Prosecutors used DNA evidence and cellphone-tracking technology to help establish that Pardon raped and strangled Anderson and stabbed her in the back of the neck in her apartment in the 3000 bock of Allegheny Avenue on the night of Jan. 28, 2018, her 24th birthday.

The jurors made Pardon eligible for the death penalty by finding him guilty of purposely killing Anderson while committing the other felony offenses. But in a separate sentencing phase, jurors were unable to unanimously agree that he should pay for the crimes with his life and instead recommended life in prison.

Pardon didn’t react as the victim’s mother spoke, nor when her father, Bill Anderson, called him “an animal who stalked and preyed on our beautiful daughter.”
