This is pretty grisly.
Memphis Man Arrested For Murder Of Roommate After Severed Head Is Found In Trash
According to WREG reports:
A gruesome discovery was made in the 3800 block of Dunn Street over the weekend when the head and hands of Andre Cole were found in a trash bag.
Saturday evening, a witness who was in the back yard of Michael Ray Wilson Jr.’s home saw human body parts when a garbage bag ripped open.
Witnesses report last seeing Cole alive on Sept. 2, 2014 with Wilson at 3872 Dunn Road. The two men were fighting.
Investigators returned to Wilson’s house on Sunday morning and found a decaying human corpse missing a head, both hands, and a left leg. They also found several instruments that appeared to have been used to dismember the body. The two hands and the lower left leg were found in another bedroom.
WMC Action News 5 obtained a list of criminal cases tied to Wilson’s name and birthday. Some arrests were for offenses like speeding and driving under the influence, however, two of the more serious crimes were for aggravated assault and domestic violence.
Wilson remains in the Shelby County Jail, his bond set at $2 million. He’s due in court September 22.
In other accounts, the man who discovered the head is identified as Lacedric Ruffin. He has said that if the bag hadn’t busted the head would have ended up in his junk yard. Wilson begged him not to call police, but fortunately he did.
