"Suspicious Death" In Newark - My9 New Jersey

"Suspicious Death" In Newark

Posted: Updated:
Newark, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

A burned and mutilated corpse was found in Newark last Sunday.  The Essex County Prosecutor is still calling the body a “suspicious death”.

Terrence Jones, a former Philadelphia cop, says this is how drug dealers send a message.  He says “Drug dealers send messages all the time.  The message I would believe would be to scare whoever they’re going to scare.”

Jones has seen two cases like this in his career.  In both cases the killing of the victim was done in one place, and then moved to another place to be dumped and burned.  He thinks that after eight days, the Essex County Office would have released more information.

Mayor Booker has made no comment on the matter.

No one else has called attention to this body.  It is believed that if it is a message, then clearly more people know about this body than are talking.
