This man murdered his girlfriend, traveled cross-country on a Greyhound bus with her head and other body parts in his suitcase, and brought the remains to his mama’s crib in order to “still be with” his dead darling.
Police are saying Melvin Martin Jr., 30, killed and dismembered his girlfriend in Louisville, KY, then hauled her body parts in suitcases to Markham, IL on a bus. The discovery was made Wednesday, when pieces of her body were found by family members at Martin’s mother home.
The head, lower torso, and organs were in three of Martin’s bags, while the woman’s torso was found in a park in Kentucky, according to CBS Chicago. Martin told investigators where to find the rest of his girlfriend’s body.
Martin was arrested at a Markham library, and charged as a fugitive fleeing prosecution. The autopsy confirmed the identity of the victim, but police haven’t released her name pending notification of her family.
