On Sept. 21, 2022, police responding to reports of a foul odor at a Brooklyn, New York apartment found the dismembered remains of 22-year-old D'Asia Johnson stuffed into a suitcase.
New York City investigators are searching for one man and five women who were caught on surveillance footage leaving the apartment where a young woman was murdered. The police have released photos of the potential witnesses, reported CBS New York, and are hoping to speak with them.
On Sept. 21, 2022, police responded to reports of a foul odor at an apartment complex in the Cypress Hills neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. What they discovered there was gruesome. D'Asia Johnson’s body was found dismembered and stuffed in two suitcases. According to the medical examiner, the 22-year-old woman’s cause of death was multiple stab wounds to her torso.
Johnson had an order of protection against her ex-boyfriend. Some of her neighbors told News 12 that they had witnessed Johnson’s ex beat her several times. They also stated that they sometimes called the police because the fighting would get so heated.
According to PEOPLE, Johnson’s ex-boyfriend, who has not been publicly named, was detained over the weekend on an arrest warrant that is unrelated to the murder. However, New York City police officers have been questioning him in connection with the killing.
Now, police are hoping to speak to the six people found in the security footage. They believe they were in the apartment on the day of the murder and may have witnessed it.
