MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama man who says he idolized serial killer John Wayne Gacy faces charges after his mother’s body was found buried under a porch.

Mobile County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Paul Burch says 32-year-old Nathaniel Sebastian is accused of murdering 60-year-old Susan Mayo, whose body was found in a 55-gallon (208-liter) drum beneath a porch. Mayo, of Wilmer, had been reported missing since June 17. He also faces other charges including abuse of a corpse.

Al.com reports Burch says investigators believe Sebastian got the idea to bury his mother in that manner after claiming to be a fan of Gacy, who kept bodies of his victims under his home. Gacy was executed in 1994.

Police Wednesday also arrested Mayo’s mother, 81-year-old Doris Clark, on a charge of hindering prosecution.
