Manheim, PA — A Pennsylvania man is accused of intentionally suffocating his girlfriend by sitting on her head after injuring her in a high-speed car crash earlier this month.

For several weeks before her death, police say 17-year-old Samantha Heller told friends and family she was pregnant, hinting that the child did not belong to her longtime on again-off again boyfriend, 19-year-old Benjamin Klinger.

Klinger, reportedly a jealous, controlling bastard, apparently got wind of the rumor and set his bizarro plan in motion.

Police believe Klinger intentionally hit a highway guardrail at a speed of more than 100 mph in an attempt to off the girl. When that failed to kill her, he sat on her head.

According to a truck driver who happened upon the crash in the early morning hours of December 4, he heard Heller screaming, and was told by 911 operators not to move the crash victims. When police arrived, Klinger was reportedly sitting on top of Heller’s head and torso.

“Klinger was observed by the officers to be what appeared as ‘slipping in and out of consciousness,'” police wrote. “Because he would close his eyes for several seconds, moan, and then reopen his eyes while continuing to be positioned on top of the victim’s head and torso while the victim was face down.”

Based on medical records, investigators later determined Klinger was faking.

Not only is Klinger a bad actor, he’s apparently a bad liar, too. After the “accident,” he told emergency personnel Heller was laying down in the back seat, unbelted, because she was pregnant and more comfortable that way. Evidence showed she was sitting in the front seat when the vehicle hit the guardrail.

The autopsy revealed Heller died of multiple traumatic injuries and asphyxia.

“At first glance, this appeared to be simply another tragic vehicle accident,” said Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman. “However, the police worked hand-in-hand with our forensic experts and saw this was far more complicated, sinister and certainly criminal.”

Seems Klinger was quite the douche – Heller had previously mentioned to friends that Klinger often tried to scare her while driving and that he had threatened to kill them both in a crash. Another of Heller’s friends reportedly told detectives that Heller said the douchebag would push her into walls and once pushed her down a set of stairs.

As a matter of fact, on top of the homicide charges he’s facing, Klinger will also be charged with simple assault for allegedly running over Heller’s foot in May, and two counts of disseminating explicit sexual materials to a minor for allegedly sending out photos and video of Heller.

Nice fucking guy, eh?

And because police recovered marijuana, cash, a digital scale, a pipe and pills from the car, he’s also facing drug charges.

Oh, and the kicker? She wasn’t pregnant.

  • Great. So now the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will get to house this
    DB for the next 50 years or so. Average is like $50,000 per year to
    house an inmate, so that’s a quarter mil right there. Factor in the
    cost of the trial – another $10,000 or so – and Pennsylvania is out a
    ton of money. Here’s a BETTER idea.

    A 9mm bullet costs about
    3¢, 6¢ for a premium brand. I volunteer my services to the Commonwealth
    of Pennsylvania, and will pay transportation and hotel costs for my
    stay in the Keystone State. All they have to do is provide me the
    bullet. Problem solved.

  • I agree. Either way, I’m so happy he didn’t get to breed.

  • I’m guessing by his threat to off them both in a crash that he intended this to be a murder-suicide, if not this was one of potentially Darwiniest murder attempts ever.

    If you’re planning on murdering someone and then committing suicide, why do you bother to mention your own death? Why the fuck would the person you’re murdering give a shit if you commit suicide after? Is it supposed to make them feel worse? Because, I have to say, I wouldn’t be terribly disappointed were I the murder victim in that scenario.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I’m not defending the murderer, or justifying the victim’s death, but Jesus… She lied that she was pregnant, and hinted it wasn’t her abusive boyfriend’s child, and remained with him despite numerous incidents of abuse beforehand? What a shame she won’t get the chance to finish growing up and develop some better fucking judgement.

  • Sam

    What a miserable face. What is he, afraid of getting laugh wrinkles? Also, he had mj yet still managed to be THAT miserable? Doing something wrong somewhere.

  • Whatevn

    I wanna sit on his face… and fart in his mouth.

    Why does that make me now think of porn?

  • Wicked Smilee


  • Evan Oswald

    so she was lying that she was pregs with another guys seed? if so – maybe i don’t feel so bad for her. he’s still a douche tho.

  • sugarpie

    I’ve got to say that even if the 911 operators told me not to move the victims, that I probably wouldn’t have listened if I thought that she was being suffocated. If this were a normal couple, the guy would have died to save his woman (at least in my fairybook)

  • We will gladly take you up on your offer of services. I’ll chip in for a few more bullets just to make sure he’s dead.

  • Evan Oswald

    he chuckled while in prison

  • Chinchillazilla

    Ugh. Just suffocate him.

  • As a woman who was once a 17 y/o girl, bad choices are a part of the growing up process. Girls (and sadly many women) love bad boys and it takes a lot to smack us out of the “my love will change him” phase. My boyfriend when I was 17 was a DICK and everyone saw it but me. He never hit me or even threatened to, which made me think that he truly loved me (which he truly did and still does) because I was the only girlfriend to that point and after from what I know that he has never put his hands on. It took a lot for me to finally leave him alone and never turn back. Then I got with another asshole but he came off as a nice guy at first. I was lied too, hoodwinked, bamboozled, led astray…run amuck I tell ya!!

    There are many reasons young women pick these types of men.

    As far as the pregnancy goes her not understanding her cycle just yet, stress that can cause your body to mimic the symptoms of the first trimester (lack of cycle, nausea, fatigue) at have caused her to believe that she was.

    Of course this is pure conjecture.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I’m sure we could find you some people to stay with in Pennsylvania, too.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I have an even cheaper idea than David. I’m fat, so I volunteer to sit on this moron’s head until he suffocates to death. No bullet required.

    This was supposed to be a reply to newstarshipsmell’s comment. oops

  • Valerie

    As someone who spent nearly five years with an abusive asshole, I will
    add that it can seem impossible to get away. It is terrifying. The only
    reason I feel safe now is that he is in prison (for attempting to rape
    me 8months after I left him). After he is released, I will not feel safe

  • newstarshipsmell

    Lacking a vagina, no thanks, I don’t need any.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Ah yes, well… I wasn’t being sarcastic. Honestly, she demonstrated some piss-poor judgement, as a minor, but now thanks to Fuckwit she’ll never have a chance to learn from her mistakes and make better decisions.

    And it’s unfair for me to call her pregnancy claim a lie; I regret that. You are totally right that she could have mistakenly believed she was (or hell, for all we know she could’ve miscarried at some point before the accident.) She certainly can’t defend herself now.

    Anyways, I hope BJ enjoys giving the BJs in prison; I’m sure a name like Klinger will go over real well with the older convicts.

  • come_and_see

    I want to know what kind of car can hit a guardrail @ 100 mph and both passengers still survive.

  • come_and_see

    The funniest kind of porn.

  • JohnQknowitall

    He is definatly a pos and she was dumber than cat shit, but I think it will be difficult to convict him in front of a jury of his peers and being dumb is no reason to die.
    The experts a the hospital will say one thing and his experts will say another and so on and so on and so on…

  • come_and_see

    This is becoming too common though. Kids having kids is how I describe it and most young women have kids for reasons other than raising a human being to adult hood.

  • BehemothII

    There use to be a guy worked with me by the name of Jeff who was a loon like this. He stated that he would drive a a great speed and unbuckle the seat belt of his wife then intentionally wreck the car if he ever found out about her cheating on him. I was dumbfounded. What do you say to an idiot like this?

  • Those of us who like to keep our vaginas don’t need ne either, even gynocologist’s don’t recommend using them.

  • Twisted1

    Sounds like we dated the same guy. Actually the douche sounds a lot like my ex. I was with him from 15-18yrs old. He never laid a hand on me UNTIL I got pregnant and would not get a abortion. Then he started throwing me into walls and tried to shove me down a flight of stairs. (He took pride in the fact he never “hit” me just threw me around). The stairs were my wake up call. I realized I was responsible for another human life not just my own and left the state. (Men like this always pull you back in when your young and dumb, I knew the only way to get away from him was to be far away from him). I met a wonderful man who loves me more then words and would sooner die then hurt me. We have been married and madly in love for over 15 yrs. My daughter is his princess and they have an amazing bond. I tell my daughter she saved my life, because I believe if I would have stayed he would have killed me one day. His violence to women only increased as he got older (his criminal record proves that. He started using women as punching bags not long after I left).

  • My son saved my life as well…completely changed my way of thinking. You obviously weren’t dumb at all because when it came to your daughters well being you chose her first. As you see from the moms featured in many of these stories, that’s very rare.

  • Why didn’t the cops pull him off of her?

  • Panavia Tornado

    Why would a girl who knew that her boyfriend is a cruel, manipulative, abusive jerk, spread false rumors that she was pregnant by another person? Was she also a cruel and manipulative? Was she mental? Or messed up on drugs?

  • tkaz

    That whole story was like a bad Lifetime movie. Poor Heller to get mixed up with this guy. Not only is he mean, he’s stupid. If he meant to kill her & wanted it to look like an accident, why would he have paraphenalia in the car?

  • Panavia Tornado

    ” bad choices are a part of the growing up process. ” Bad choices? A bad choice might be shoplifting lip gloss from the drug store, or believing a boy who tells you he loves you right before he sticks his unrubbered dick in you. Cutting school is a bad choice. Watching reality TV is a bad choice. We are talking about disasterously stupidly fatally “bad” choices.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Oh by the way, glad to have you back around, stranger.

  • Thank you.

  • Well that explains the down vote.

    “We are talking about disastrously stupidly fatally “bad” choices.”

    So then you agree…good to get that settled.

  • ShelbySP


  • ShelbySP

    Wow, I think everyone dates this same guy from the ages of 16-18. Sounds just like one of my first boyfriends. There was no pregnancy involved, but it took him driving by my house while I wasn’t home like a stalker and threatening my family to snap me out of it.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Nothing, really. Just nod in agreement while slowly backing away.

  • BehemothII

    Don’t get me wrong I am 300 lbs and 6″2″ Marine Vet that is bigger than 98% of people mentally and physically, I just from a pyschological stand point would like to know what I may have said to sway his view.

  • JGo555

    But dudes in Maury jump for joy and want no part of the bitch that cheats on them!!??? Why in the fuck, if the baby wasn’t his didn’t he wash his hands off the situation!?

    I wish him all the rape his ass CAN’T handle.

  • sweekymom

    I would happily buy you a whole box of premium bullets for this important undertaking.

  • NoSkeletonsNGlassHouses

    Why the fuck *do* we fall for the bad boy? I blame the Happily Ever After Effect. We all grew up with same movies and books where a good girl ‘fixes’ a bad boy through the magical power of her love – ’cause she’s just that special. Then the couple rides off into the sunset and lives happily ever after.

    As little girls, nobody tells us it’s bullshit, we just lap that romantic slop up like kittens and milk. It’s not until we get our hearts broken by a real-life bad boy that the lucky ones start figuring it out. You can’t ‘fix’ someone who doesn’t want to be fixed and that’s not a reflection of your own worth. It doesn’t mean you aren’t ‘special,’ or your love wasn’t enough, or you weren’t good enough, it just means the guy is an immature ass.

    So, can I get an amen? Or at least a rationally thought out counter argument?

  • Amen!!

  • I think many young girls get pregnant to trap a man as well. NOT ALL before all of you former teenage moms hunt me down…but many.

    No shit. Then I want a trade in.

  • wastintime

    He just needs to die, and she was an idiot.

  • Canuck Gramz

    You’re a jerk. And you’re talking to yourself again.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Good work on the part of the police, investigators and the ME. Although this girl couldn’t be saved, their work probably prevented the death of more women.

  • FrikkenFrak

    I wonder if we could rent out a big pile of land in Greenland and send each hard time convict there with 1 blanket and a years worth of peanut butter and jelly?

  • techsupp0rt

    17, so the parents still had some say here, in this ‘longtime, on again off again’ thing. She ‘alluded’ that the guy wasn’t the father, and what, they didn’t ask any further questions? Didn’t take her to the doctor? They did nothing, even though at least her friends knew she had been abused.

    Take heed, parents! If they’ve never seen such a thing as domestic violence before (and often if they have), then you will have to be the one to notice the red flags. Just because 18 is the age of majority doesn’t mean that after your 18th birthday you suddenly have all of the knowledge of the world, and just because they’re 17 doesn’t mean they’re almost an adult. It just means they’re no longer under your direction once they’re 18. If you see red flags, and do nothing, then you will likely end up with a dead daughter, or one who is abused for many years until she is dead. You won’t always be the most popular parent, but they don’t need another friend, they need their parents to be PARENTS. That means if she comes home with some psychotic jackass, you chase him off with a shotgun, cannon, flame thrower, Cat o Nine Tails, hot iron, ‘The Pear’, whatever- after assuring him you know where he lives, works, and habitually goes, and how crazy protective you are, and how few fucks you give if it means you go to jail to protect your kid. Anything short is a disservice.

  • Wicked Smilee

    Just as many men trap women, in that case.

  • BEastDuo

    sounds like mine too, I was pregnant, but lost the pregnancy because of my size. 90lbs about then.

    get a gun and take a long self defense and gun safety course.

  • BEastDuo

    darwiniest…new word, I like it!

  • BEastDuo

    purely conjecture, but maybe, he threw it in there because a) he was just an idiot, or b) he wanted it to look like she was trying to kill the fetus, so he wouldn’t get nailed in a double murder which some places can charge you for it you kill a pregnant woman.

  • Valerie

    I have a gun and I know how to use it lmao. But, I can’t just leave a weapon lying around at all times.That is why I will be getting a Caucasian Ovcharka once we buy a house. They are great family dogs with a high defensive drive. I know a great breeder and I will not get a poorly bred out of control animal. Just something big that can help protect my family.

  • alphatroll

    Too bad they didn’t think of the “face-sitting” option earlier, could have prevented at least one of her problems.

  • Abroad

    What did Greenland ever do to you?

  • BEastDuo

    Atta Girl Valerie. You take good care of yourself and your family, I’ll be thinking about ya.

  • You know, life sucks sometimes. I can see being upset–very upset–to discover that your girlfriend is screwing someone else and is pregnant by him. But here’s what you do. You cry in your beer and count your blessings that you found out early on, and that the child isn’t yours so you don’t have to pay child support for life. This fool is pure and simple a sociopath who needs to remain behind bars.

  • You are right. I finally gave up on trying to find anyone because I seem to only attract abusive asshats, either emotional or physical abuse.

  • I’m fat too. You sit on his head and I’ll bounce on his chest. See how he likes them apples.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Right on.

    Although he looks like he’s already been sat on, by something big. Like a semi, maybe?
