Brooklyn, NY. (THECOUNT) — Police identified Savannah Rivera as the woman found dead and partially decapitated in a Brooklyn apartment Saturday.
Rivera, 20, was killed and Angela Valle, 21, was injured in a grisly Brooklyn assault inside an eighth-floor condo within the Bushwick Homes early Saturday evening.
A deceased female was found early Saturday after an injured woman flagged an Uber around 1:30 a.m. Saturday and instructed the driver to contact police, according to a law enforcement official.
When officers arrived at the 8th-floor apartment, Rivera was unconscious and unresponsive in the living room, where she was pronounced dead. She had multiple stab wounds and lacerations to the head, arms and body. She also had severed fingers, reports MyFox8.
A bloody ax was reportedly recovered from the scene hidden in a trash compactor at the public housing complex, the official said.
A 4-year-old girl was also discovered unharmed. The child’s 21-year-old mother managed to run from the apartment and summons help while leaving her young daughter hiding in a bedroom, according to the law enforcement official.
The young mother suffered lacerations on her head and body. She was listed in critical but stable condition at an area hospital, police said.
The two women were either friends or relatives, according to officials.
The child was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and observation.
Police on Saturday night have been grilling a suspect in reference to the savage ax assault in a Brooklyn condo that left one girl lifeless and one other critically injured, reports TopStyleToday.
The suspect, who was said to be the boyfriend of the victim, goes by the name “Grim Creepa” on Facebook. PIX11 News talked to him at which time he asked them to call him “Jerry.”
“Jerry” told PIX11 News that he does not remember what happened. He said the only thing he remembered was trying to get medication from a hospital because he claims he suffers from mental illness, naming schizophrenia, paranoia and he says he’s also bipolar.
“Jerry” told PIX11 that he was a patient at South Shore Mental Health facility on Staten Island and has been to several other mental facilities, including in Florida.
