Two churches denied today that suspected “Craigslist killer” Richard Beasley was a chaplain in their denominations or that he used their affiliations to mentor teenager Brogan Rafferty, who is charged with attempted murder.

Beasley, 52, who his mother said worked as an unpaid chaplain, was arrested on Nov. 16 along with 16-year-old Rafferty.

Rafferty’s mother Yvette Rafferty told “Good Morning America,” “Brogan looked up to Chaplain Rich Beasley. For 10 years now he’s been taking the church and Bible studies.”

Beasley was arrested for previous charges related to prostitution and drugs, while Rafferty has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
