Teen Being Investigated In Mom And Mom’s Boyfriend’s Murder
A 15-year-old Brooklyn girl is in police custody after the bodies of her 39-year-old mother, and her mother’s 40-year-old boyfriend were discovered decomposing inside of their Sheepshead Bay apartment Sunday.
According to the New York Daily News, investigators received a call from around 8 p.m. from the teen’s cousin after she confessed to the killings. When police arrived on the scene, they found the body of the girl’s mom with multiple gunshot wounds inside of a bedroom. The corpse of the boyfriend was found in the kitchen with multiple stab wounds and gunshot wounds.
The murders occurred on December 27 after the teen says that her mother ignored accusations that her boyfriend repeatedly sexually assaulted her. The girl went to stay with her cousin after the murders, but when the cousin inquired about why he hadn’t heard from her mother for several days, the teen confessed.
“She did go to somebody, and they let us know what happened,” said one police source. “A relative called us.”
Shortly after police found the bodies, the teen was taken into custody. As of early Monday morning, she was still being questioned by police. Investigators believe that she may have received help from a friend in carrying out the murders.
“I can’t believe it,” said Amy Moya. “They (the couple) were always happy and laughing. They were always walking together as a couple. In the summer, they would always go together to the beach.”
“I really can’t believe it. I’m shocked,” she continued. “That is such a quiet building.”
