On April 6, Jessica Nageldinger’s family received an unwelcome Easter surprise in the mailbox of their Florida home.

Earlier that day, her brother-in-law discovered a toy Easter egg in the family’s mailbox, but what they found inside the plastic orange shell shocked them.

“The last thing I did expect to see was opening an Easter egg ... would be pornographic pictures,” Nageldinger, 31, told Oxygen.com. “It was just random and weird.”

Inside the egg, the family found a Skittles candy drink, Goldfish Crackers, a square of toilet paper, and a tiny scroll of religious writings — alongside images of a naked woman and two men having sex. Beneath the graphic images was an artistic rendering of a Roman soldier spearing a crucified Jesus Christ. 

“[It was] horrifying group sex stuff,” the pregnant mom explained. “It was disgusting. Our concern is we have five children under the age of 10 that check the mail.” 

Nageldinger, who is currently living with her sister’s family, said they were also fearful the anonymous mailer could be spreading COVID-19. 

“That was our first concern was [that] someone was spreading the virus,” she explained. “That’s what we thought was on the piece of toilet paper.” 

A day earlier, Nageldinger recalled seeing a grey Honda cruise down the block. She saw a person get out and place something in her sister’s mailbox, but at the time didn’t find it suspicious. When the car re-appeared on the block this week, she immediately called the authorities. 

Abril Cestoni, 43 — later identified as the alleged messenger of the pornographic Easter eggs — was arrested on a Florida parkway by Flagler County sheriff’s deputies shortly afterwards, according to charging documents obtained by Oxygen.com. She was charged with 11 counts of distributing obscene material.

Cestoni admitted to delivering the pornographic eggs and religious pamphlets, and went on a homophobic rant about “quantum” and “magnetic fields,” sexually transmitted diseases, and the Bible before deputies arrested her, according to body camera footage obtained and reviewed by Oxygen.com

“Why are we having gays teaching in the class in the church?” she asked law enforcement. “They are rewriting Bibles.”

Cestoni, who also insisted she wasn’t a religious fanatic, told deputies she was enraged by local churches. The 43-year-old visited “59” places of worship, she said, in an attempt to confront religious leaders over her concern regarding their teachings of the Bible. 

“I have attended and I have spoken about all these churches … and not even one have replied back to [me],” Cestoni told deputies, according to the video. “They never have time to speak to [me] about it.”

When they all ignored her, she began printing her pornographic religious manifestos, hid them in Easter eggs, and began stuffing them in the mailboxes of countless homes. She admitted to unloading between 200-400 religious pamphlets on April 8 alone, according to the footage.

“As a parent, I would be livid if a child saw that in my mailbox,” one deputy scolded her.  “Do you understand that you’re potentially victimizing people [and] children?”

Cestoni could face additional charges. Authorities suspect a number of Cestoni’s Easter eggs haven’t yet been reported or discovered by other Florida families.

“In my career I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite this bizarre, especially around Easter,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly, told Oxygen.com. “She just had a very unusual way to try to get her message [out].”

Staly described Cestoni as a "sick" and “deranged” “religious zealot.”

“She had this perception that the Bible was being rewritten and that the religious leaders were not teaching the Bible properly,” he explained. “Clearly she has issues with homosexuality based on what she depicted in these documents. I don’t know what was going through her mind.”

Cestoni appeared before a county judge on April 9 and is currently being held without bond at a Flagler County detention facility. She was also charged with driving with a suspended license and violating disaster preparedness orders related to Florida’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order, jail records show. It was not clear from her records if she had a lawyer who could comment on her behalf.
