Central Pa. man charged in death of woman he allegedly met on dating app

Cody Allan Gerber, who resides in York County, was reportedly arrested and charged by the police in connection with the death of a woman who occurred two years ago. Northern York County Regional Police announced on Tuesday that Gerber, who resides in Franklin Township, has been charged with third-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and abuse of a corpse in connection with the death of Emily Pritsch, who was a resident of Harrisburg.

On October 4, 2020, police reported that Pritsch’s body was discovered inside of her vehicle after Gerber, who was also in the vehicle, called 911. Gerber, who is 31, allegedly told the police that he had met Pritsch through a dating application and that the two had been together at his residence on the evening of October 3rd.

An autopsy revealed that she had suffered traumatic injuries, and her body also contained fentanyl, which led the police to conclude that her death was the result of a homicide. “injuries to the abdomen are consistent with repeated kicks, knees, or stomping,” the police said in a news release. “injuries to the abdomen are not consistent with accidental causes,” the police said.

According to the police, Gerber had photographs of Pritsch while he was unconscious on his mobile phone, including one with a caption stating that God had “taken an angel.” Gerber was reportedly waiting to be arraigned on Tuesday morning, according to the police.
