Police in Pueblo, Colorado, arrested and charged a security guard with charges of first-degree murder after being found in his possession a severed human hand.
According to court documents, the inmate, identified as Solomon Martínez 26 years old, is the main suspect in a violent crime whose investigation began on January 10.
It all started with the discovery of a woman’s body by the river Fountain Creek with a very rare (more than finding an inanimate person): cutting off the head. The investigations quickly led to Martínez, who reported that he had hired a prostitute the night before. During that arrest, they seized from her possession the banana hand that they suspected belonged to the prostitute.
He asked his roommate for help
Arrest reports indicate that before disposing of the body, Martínez asked his roommate for help, Joshua Mazzurco.
“He came up to me and asked, ‘Do you want to pay off the $1,000 loan?’ I need you to dig a three-meter hole,'” Mazzurco told the agents. He, in disbelief, thought it was all a terrible joke, but Martínez seriously replied that it was not of any kind. comedy or comedy.
Despite Mazzurco’s refusal to cooperate, police records show he saw Martínez cleaning the woman’s blood from her hands at a car wash, but that fear prevented her from reporting him.
“I was scared, more than scared. “I can’t put into words how scared I am physically,” Mazzurco reasoned.
Solomon Martínez works for the former Pueblo County sheriff’s security guard company, Dan Corsentino. He confirmed that Martínez had no criminal record and that he had passed all the tests before being hired at the end of December, just two weeks before he was arrested on murder charges.
