Newark Homicide Seems "Suspicious"

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

On Sunday, kids riding their bikes discovered a body in South Ward, Newark. The body was found burned, mutilated and stuck underneath the Jersey barrier.  The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office is looking into it and calling the body “suspicious”.

Forensic Expert Lawrence Kobilinsky from John Jay College believes that the body was burned and mutilated in order to cover up any evidence the police might find.  Burning the body makes it more difficult to figure out why that body would be there. Kobilinsky says “it’s clear to me we’re looking at a homicide case.”

This morning, a Newark grounds crew was cleaning up the area making sure not to disturb the crime scene.  In the past, the Essex County Prosecutors had cleared that very same area because it has been the scene of similar crimes and murders before.  

The kids who discovered the body have since gone back to school.  They are fine, and it seems that they don’t really understand what they found or what was going on.

Mayor Cory Booker has been silent in regards to the children who found the body, but he has been addressing the increase in crime in Newark.  In the past ten days, there have been ten bodies found. In response, Booker has increased police activity.

These videos show the various stages and results of abortions, including aborted fetuses.
