THIS is the chilling moment a killer drags a trolley carrying his dead neighbour’s body inside after an alleged row over her barking dogs.
Juan Angel Gomez Chavarro, 22, was arrested last week in Palmira, Colombia after CCTV footage revealed him attempting to disguise and dump his victim’s body.
The body of Estefania Arias Osorio, a 53-year-old street vendor, was found in Las Victorias neighbourhood wrapped in garbage bags inside the abandoned trolley on September 14.
The horrifying CCTV footage shows the suspect struggling to pull the heavy trolley along the street.
He then arrives at a building where he goes inside with the cart, but later leaves without it.
Chavarro told police he had killed his neighbour Estefania because he hated her dogs, which barked loudly at him every time they saw him.
On the day of the crime, he said the victim’s dogs started barking once again, which led to a furious row with Estefania that ended when he brutally murdered her.
The prosecutor’s office said that Chavarro had beaten his victim so severely that he broke her skull and jaw.
She had reportedly passed out and was defenceless when “he proceeded to stuff plastic bags into her in her mouth”.
Valle del Cauca Police commander, Jesus Enrique Quintero, confirmed that the victim had suffered an extremely violent death involving the savage beating followed by suffocation.
He said that afterwards, Chavarro went back home but later returned to the crime scene on September 14.
Quintero explained that the suspect cleared away the blood and took the body to another location where he dumped it.
The 22-year-old has been kept in custody on charges of aggravated homicide, concealment of a corpse and interfering with a crime scene.
