William Joseph Dankesreiter Jr. Wiki – Biography

Prosecutors allege that William Joseph Dankesreiter Jr., 63, intended for his wife, Laura, to fall to her death and collect on a $300,000 life insurance policy, according to a PennLive report. Fortunately, he managed to catch himself before falling down the wooden staircase, initially thinking that his near fall was caused by a loose piece of carpet. However, upon closer inspection, Laura Dankesreiter said she saw a pair of metal hooks installed on each side of the door with a piece of fishing line stretched between them about 3 inches above the carpet.

Investigation Report

According to court documents, Laura Dankesreiter told investigators that she tripped over something while she was going down to the basement of her Derry Township home to get something out of the freezer for breakfast in October 2020. “There was nothing accidental about this,” State Trooper Stephen Limani told KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh at the time, noting that his injuries would have been “catastrophic” if he had fallen to the concrete floor below. In court this week, prosecutors painted a bleak picture of the state of the Dankesreiters’ marriage, and witnesses testified that William Dankesreiter was having an affair with another woman. “Her happiness and his sexual satisfaction were more important than Laura’s,” prosecutors said in their opening statement Monday, PennLive reported. William Dankesreiter’s defense team reportedly intends to cast doubt on the alleged affair, and may even hint that Laura Dankesreiter organized the whole affair herself. Court records indicate William Dankesreiter faces charges of attempted criminal homicide, assault, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
