Man allegedly murdered his father, left dead body on New York street
A son wanted for stabbing his father to death 46 times and then leaving the body in a plastic bag on a Brooklyn street has been arrested in Louisiana, police said.
Joseph Adams, 26, was arrested in Gretna and returned to the Big Apple in connection with the gruesome October 16 stabbing murder of Christopher Adams, 49, in Cypress Hills, police said on Friday.
The victim was found dead around 12:35 p.m. near Van Sinderen and Herkimer streets – his body was left on the sidewalk in a black bag, police said.
Joseph Adams received a necklace after an eagle-eyed Louisiana officer stopped the suspect’s car in Gretna and determined he was wanted by the NYPD, cops said.
NYPD detectives traveled to Louisiana and extradited the suspect to Brooklyn, an NYPD spokeswoman said. Adams was arrested on Friday.
Joseph Adams is charged with murder, concealing a human corpse, tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a weapon, cops have said.
The 26-year-old murder suspect is no stranger to authorities.
Police sources said Adams was arrested in July 2014 after allegedly raping a woman in Brooklyn a month earlier after meeting her online through a dating app.
Adams lured his wife to East 31st Street in the Marine Park by inviting her to eat pizza, police sources said.
Adams allegedly dragged his victim down an alley and, at the threat of a knife, forced her to perform oral sex and then attempted to rape her, the sources said.
The victim suffered cuts to his neck and hands, the sources said. The outcome of this case was not immediately known.
