Authorities arrested the car's driver, Jason Richard Budrow, 30, a registered sex offender and self-described Satanist with "666" tattooed above his eyebrow.

Officials said Dalton had been dating Budrow.

Investigators said Budrow, who said he was involved in pimping and dealing drugs, admitted strangling Dalton because he thought she was a police informant.
