AN incest dad who had a child with his own daughter was eventually exposed by a diary that said their baby would be “half-demon”.
Steven Pladl of Wake County, North Carolina left his wife to start a relationship with his long lost daughter Katie Fusco.
His unsuspecting wife Alyssa, discovered the disturbing affair after reading her 11-year-old daughter’s diary.
The twisted affair started after Katie, who was given up for adoption in 1998, decided to track down her biological parents.
Katie who has just turned 18, was able to reconnect with them through social media.
She moved in with them and their two other children near Richmond, Virginia in August 2016.
The couple separated three months later with Alyssa moving out of the family home alongside her two children.
In the meantime, Steven and Katie moved 150 miles away to Knightdale, North Carolina.
Nearly a year later in May 2017, she received a call from Steven saying their 11-year-old daughter started misbehaving.
It was then that she decided to have a look at the young girl’s diary, only to discover the sickening truth.
Chilling entries from the child’s diary revealed the disturbing relationship between Steven and Katie
According to a report by the Daily Mail, at the time, the confused girl had written: “Katie is pregnant. Dad says they feel like couples. Did they get a little too drunk that night? My dad is a s***.
“He’s Satan. He’s f*****g SATAN.
“He’ll go to hell but he won’t be the one getting tortured, he’ll be the one torturing people.”
The girl added: “Wait one second if he’s Satan and Katie is a human then the baby will be half-demon.”
The diary also included drawings of her pregnant sister and dad, depicting them both as devils.
The horrified mum was left in shock after the disturbing discovery.
She said: “I lost it. I started screaming. I felt like I was going to throw up.”
After confronting her husband, Alyssa found the pair planned to marry and that Steven had instructed his other children to call Katie their “step-mum”.
She told cops her husband would sleep on the floor of Katie’s room in the months before she moved out.
The authorities were alerted and arrest warrants were issued for the pair.
They were tracked down and charged with incest with adult, adultery, contributing to delinquency.
A baby boy, understood to be a four-month-old fathered by Steven, was found at their home.
Alyssa has blamed her ex-husband and insists he brainwashed and seduced Katie.
She said: “There are no words to describe the sense of betrayal and disgust I’m feeling.
“I waited 18 long years to have a relationship with my daughter – and now he’s completely destroyed it.”
