Tacoma, Wash. Police Arrest Man Who Asked Neighbor If He Could Leave Body In Garbage
It's hard to turn down a neighbor who asks to borrow some sugar, but when the person next door wants help covering up a crime, it's time to install a fence. Or maybe move somewhere new.
Police in Tacoma, Wash. arrested Anthony Tyrone Clark who shocked his neighbors by asking if he could dump a body in their garbage, according to station KCPQ
The grisly request was apparently sincere, because when police came to the apartment complex the remains of a 16-year-old boy were found in the trash receptacle, The Tacoma News Tribune
The victim died from a single gunshot wound on Wednesday and police arrested the 20-year-old suspect on Thursday on suspicion of first-degree murder, The News Tribune
reported in a later article.
Police told KING 5 News
that they don't know if the neighbor gave the green light to the suspect to dispose of the corpse in his trash can.
