A California man caught on video dragging the dead body of a woman to a dumpster has been arrested for murder, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Kevin Flanagan, 39, and Kathleen Salmond, 40, are both accused of murdering Lisa Bennett (pictured) in the Weoley Castle area of Birmingham, and tricking the DWP into receiving her benefits cash.
whispers apparently stem from the murder of 26-year-old Elizabeth Candice Nichole Laird, whose body was found in a dumpster outside an apartment building on the city’s east side on Wednesday. “There is false information circulating on social media that there is a serial killer at large in downtown Detroit, and that five to six female victims have been found in dumpsters prior to the May 15 homicide … and that Detroit Police have failed to communicate this information to the public,” police officials said on Facebook.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters at an impromptu afternoon news conference that minutes earlier detectives had taken the suspect, James Quill Cockerham, into custody in the death of 26-year-old Elizabeth Candice Nichole Laird. “I appreciate our friends in the media for really dispelling a horrible rumor that was circulating across the city that there was a serial killer and that he had dumped five bodies in dumpsters across the city,” Craig said.
