Found Competent: Woman Who Dumped 5 Garbage Bags of Body Parts

UPDATE:

Woman Accused Of Dismembering Son Is Mentally Competent To Stand Trial. HuffPo Crime, 9/5/2014.

Donna Scrivo of St. Clair Shores appeared in court Friday, where attorneys said psychological evaluations deemed her mentally competent. She waived a District Court hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to send the case to trial.

Defense lawyer Elias Muawad tells the Detroit Free Press “we want to move on to prepare for trial.”

The next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 22 in Macomb County Circuit Court.

The 60-year-old is charged with first-degree murder and dismemberment. Five bags containing 32-year-old Ramsay Scrivo’s body parts were dumped in February in St. Clair County, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit. An electric saw was found in one of the bags.

The remains of a person were found this afternoon on Allington Road and Fred Moore Highway in China Township.

According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, a citizen called in a suspicious incident at approximately 4:00. Deputies responded and discovered parts of a body in garbage bags along the roads. At this time, there has been no determination of sex or race of the body.

Once on the scene, another citizen told deputies they observed a mid- 1990’s SUV type vehicle in the area, dumping what the caller believed to be garbage from the vehicle. The vehicle is believed to be white or gray in color, possibly a GMC Jimmy or Chevrolet Trailblazer. That vehicle was being driven by a middle age Caucasian woman.

“We are treating this incident as a homicide,” said Sheriff Donnellon. “We are asking for the public’s help to solve this crime. If anyone observed anything unusual in the area of Fred Moore Highway and Allington Road between noon and 4:00 p.m., please contact our office at (810) 985-8115.”

Teen Leaves Aunt Christmas “Present”: Her Dismembered Boyfriend

On Christmas Eve, Valdez was home drinking while his aunt was at a party and Diaz-Hernandez was visiting family members. Diaz-Hernandez came home to find there was no beer left in the house and headed out with Valdez to a nearby drugstore to pick some up, Sawyers said.

Valdez hid a hammer by the apartment’s door before leaving, Sawyers said. The store turned out to be closed. When the two men returned home, Valdez let Diaz-Hernandez enter first, then picked up the hammer and struck him in the back of the head, Sawyers said.

Diaz-Hernandez fell to the floor, and Valdez struck him up to 10 more times, Sawyers said. Valdez then covered the windows, played loud music and began cutting apart the man’s body, the prosecutor said.

He used a butcher knife to cut off Diaz-Hernandez’s ears, nose and mouth, and also cut off the man’s head and his left arm, Sawyers said.

Valdez then put the head, ears and nose on his aunt’s bed “as he, quote, ‘Wanted to leave his aunt a present,'” Sawyers said.

According to an arrest report, police who responded to the home after Valdez called 911 on Christmas Day found him sitting in the front yard with an iPad in his hands.

When one officer asked, “What’s going on?” Valdez replied, “Shouldn’t you arrest me before you ask me questions?”

The officer then asked why he should arrest Valdez. “Because I just killed a man, and he’s in the basement,” Valdez said, before slamming the iPad to the ground, cracking its screen.

Valdez allegedly told police he would have killed his aunt, too, if she had come home and seen the body.

Missing Woman Found “in suitcases and plastic bags strewn throughout a Bronx neighborhood” [UPDATE]

Police have identified the victim as Tania Byrd, a 45-year-old woman who has been missing since the weekend. They think Byrd was dismembered at her Westchester Avenue apartment and they have a suspect in custody who has made statements implicating himself, NBC 4 New York has learned.

Sources have said Byrd’s son, who called police to report her missing Tuesday morning, was being questioned Tuesday.

Law enforcement officials tell NBC 4 New York that the man walking his dog along 158th Street in Morrisania came upon a plastic bag of what he thought were books. As he moved to open the bag, he noticed a gray Dodge Charger circling the block, so he took the bag around the corner and looked inside, finding two hands and a shoulder.

He sent his son to call police and continued walking the dog. About two blocks away on Eagle Avenue he and the dog came upon a suitcase, and the dog sat down next to it. The man opened the suitcase and found a woman’s torso, wearing a bra, according to law enforcement officials.

Responding police found a plastic bag further down Eagle Avenue that contained a leg and a foot, and then nearby on Cauldwell Avenue, they found a black suitcase with a leg and the woman’s head.

UPDATE:

The son [Bashid McLean] charged with murdering and dismembering his mother’s body allegedly posed with his mother’s severed head in a photo taken on his cellphone.

The Daily News reports 23-year-old Bashid McLean appears “almost gleeful” in the disturbing photo.

He has reportedly confessed to the charges and has been placed on suicide watch.

McLean was charged with murder as well as unlawful dissection of a human body and hindering prosecution. His friend, William Harris, was also charged with unlawful dissection of a human body and hindering prosecution (plus criminal possession of stolen property and unlawful possession of marijuana). Both men accuse the other in the murder. From NBC New York:

Officials say the two men tell different stories. The son says he left the apartment he shared with his mother at about 3 a.m. Monday to go to the ATM. When he returned, he has told investigators, his friend had stabbed Byrd to death and threatened to kill him and his 6-year-old brother if he didn’t help get rid of the body.

His friend, meanwhile, has told investigators that the son told him he killed his mother, and showed him a photograph of her, dead, asking for his friend’s help in disposing of her corpse. The two suspects agree that they went to a Bronx hardware store to purchase supplies for the job, including a power saw and gloves. Investigators say there are bloodstains at the apartment, and that it appears someone tried to clean up the mess with bleach.
