Kostial was found shot to death near SardisLake in Mississippi.  Classmate BrandonTheesfeld from Fort Worth, Texas, is charged with her murder.

Newly released video from ABC News, showsDaniel Theesfeld, coming out of the Lafayette County Detention Center presumablyvisiting his son, Brandon, who is charged with the murder of classmate AllyKostial. We are told the two also dated. 

A student who lived in the same dorm asTheesfeld says he was often egotistical and misogynistic.

“With the way that he treated women, andhis attitude towards women in general, it didn’t surprise me,” said RexRavita, Brandon Theesfeld neighbor.

A local bartender had a different perception ofhim.

“My reaction was I don’t think he did it,just because I knew him, who he was. He’s always been a gentleman, and beensweet, and been kind, and just overall a goofy dude,” said OxfordBartender, Erin Beadle.

Theesfeld is being represented by well-knownMemphis attorneys and cousins, Steve and Tony Farese.

Meanwhile, family and friends of Kostial arestill grieving. They are preparing to say their final goodbyes at her funeralwhich is set for Saturday in St. Louis.
