The Dodge Charger featured a roomy backseat — spacious enough to fit the dead body of one man’s girlfriend, anyways.
A Tennessee man allegedly strangled his girlfriend to death and then tried to sell off her car — with her dead body inside.
Nashville police officials said in a statement that Robert Miquel Johnson, 31, faces criminal homicide charges following an investigation that began on May 2 when the body of Pamela Paz, 44, was found in a parking lot beneath a Nashville overpass.
Detectives in the case found a witness with some unusual information.
The witness claims Johnson attempted to sell the victim’s Dodge Charger while the corpse was in the back seat.
During his questioning, Johnson gave investigators false information about his whereabouts at the time of the killing, according to investigators.
“He was interviewed and provided an alibi, which was subsequently proven to be false,” the police statement read.
Johnson is in custody in neighbouring Wilson County but will be extradited to Nasvhille in the “near future.”
