Darwin Jackson is escorted by police from the 44th Precinct after his mother, Tihesha Savage, was found dead.
Darwin Jackson, 16, was carted off to jail after he shot and killed his own mother before dumping her body in the bushes.
Tihesha Savage, 34, was found slain inside a plastic storage bin in the Bronx Wednesday, and her teenage son was charged with her murder after video footage showed him dumping it on the street like everyday trash.
Jackson’s cold heart didn’t end there; neighbor Sonia Carrion said that when he saw his mother on the ground dead, he said:
“Oh my God, that’s my mom,’ and he spit and walked away…He actually spit.”
Jackson was an avid MySpace user and went by the name ScarfaceKiller.
Tihesha Savage was found killed and stuffed into a plastic box left on the street.
According to the New York Daily News:
Jackson told investigators he shot his mother amid an argument, police sources said. He was charged Wednesday night with second-degree murder and weapons possession.
A building super spotted the tan rectangular bin near some bushes on Macombs Road about 9:10 a.m. Wednesday. When the super took off the lid, he found a horror. Inside was Savage’s crumpled body, with what appeared to be a gunshot wound on her head.
Savage was swaddled in a fleece Scooby-Doo blanket, and more soiled blankets were found in a nearby courtyard, witnesses said. Police were summoned.
Amid the commotion, Jackson came downstairs and walked over. “Ewww! Oh my God!” he said, according to Carrion.
“Everybody saw him spit when he saw the body,” she added.
Neighbors said that Jackson seemed calm, while his younger sister was hysterical.
How can a son be so heartless towards his own mother? Our hearts go out to the Savage family during this tragic time.
