PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two men and a woman are in custody after a body was found wrapped inside a blood-soaked carpet in a Wissinoming home on Saturday afternoon, police say. Officers responded to the 4000 block of Higbee Street just after 2:30 p.m.
“I known that there was a Hispanic guy, a Puerto Rican, but I don’t know if it’s him or somebody else because I don’t know who actually they found,” a neighbor told Eyewitness News.
Police say the man killed lived at the home with his girlfriend and two young daughters.
“Two little kids in there. They be sitting on the porch, playing on the porch right there,” said neighbor David Roberts.
Detectives say it was around 2:30 p.m. when the landlord found the victim’s girlfriend and two other men in the basement cutting up a blood soaked carpet with the victim wrapped inside.
All three were taken into custody.
“Well I just saw two patrol cars pull over and they were just like talking normally and all of a sudden, they just started screaming and all three of them were arrested there,” said another neighbor.
This wasn’t the first incident.
Police were called to the home for a domestic dispute Friday.
Neighbors say they’ve heard commotion in the past.
“I knew there were fights and everything, fighting outside,” said a neighbor. “It’s sad yeah, regardless of what happens, it’s sad.”
No charges have been filed at this time.
