“Troubled” is an absolute understatement here:
An 18 year old man who family members and neighbors described as “troubled” is under arrest Saturday in connection with the murder of his mother whose dismembered body was discovered in a freezer.
18 year old Moises Meraz Espinoza walked into the East L.A. Sheriff’s Station with a family member and reportedly admitted to the gruesome crime. Investigators went to the apartment in the 5600 block of Maywood Ave. and discovered the body of a woman in a freezer.
The woman, reportedly the man’s mother, had been cut into several pieces with a saw, according to sources close to the investigation. Family members tell KTLA that Meraz Espinoza had been depressed and had been acting strangely.
A family member who didn’t wish to be identified told KTLA that Meraz Espinoza may have been suffering from depression after his girlfriend was hit by a car and killed four months ago.
We would probably use “sick f*ck” to describe this young man instead of “troubled.” SMH.
