UPPER DARBY. Pa (CBS) — Prosecutors say a suspect is in custody after confirming the body found in a trash bag in Philadelphia’s East Germantown neighborhood Tuesday night is Sabrina DuBose, a woman who was reported missing out of Haverford Township just more than a month ago. Before leading police to a wooded vacant lot in East Germantown on Tuesday night, arrest papers show Kareem Davis-Duppins hid DuBose’s body in an elevator shaft for a week at an Upper Darby apartment complex.
In late May, Davis-Duppins transferred DuBose’s remains to the 5700 block of Musgrave Street in East Germantown, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.
Court documents claim Davis-Duppins offered a step-by-step statement of his actions.
Davis-Duppins claims he strangled DuBose following an argument over cash and drugs on May 22.
The 25-year-old Haverford woman was reported missing in late May.
Surveillance video last showed her in the area of 69th Street in Upper Darby.
Davis-Duppins claims the two met on the “El.” He says they went back to an apartment facility, where he worked.
Court papers show at least six witnesses told police Davis-Duppins implicated himself in killing DuBose.
Davis-Duppins faces counts of first-degree murder and abuse of corpse. He’s being held without bail.
DuBose’s family did not get back to Eyewitness News about the development in the case.
