This week, a sex offender has been charged with murdering his alleged girlfriend and stashing her body parts inside his freezer in Flatbush.
On Tuesday, January 17 cops found a woman’s torso and leg at a Hunt’s Point Metropolitan Transfer Station. They traced the remains to Flatbush man Somorie Moses, 40, and upon further investigation found the victim’s head and foot — which had his name tattooed on it — inside of Moses’ freezer at 185 Erasmus Street on January 22. Cops also found blood spattered around the apartment and blood-soaked clothing, reports the Post.
Somorie was first charged with ‘concealment of a human corpse’, but after further investigation, he is now facing murder charges, said cops.
