Man dumps girlfriend’s body on video

 

WARNING: Graphic

Disturbing video released early Tuesday shows a man dragging his pregnant girlfriend's lifeless body out of a car and dumping her on the side of an expressway in Queens, New York.

The clip, tweeted by NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison early Tuesday, shows 29-year-old Goey Charles yanking the body of Vanessa Pierre, also 29, out of a light-coloured car and leaving her on the ground on Horace Harding Expressway near Bell Boulevard in Bayside, next to a small bush, Friday morning.

He's shown getting back in the driver's seat before the video cuts off:

Authorities believe Pierre may have been strangled, after medical personnel found bruising around the victim's neck, sources said at the time.

She had a sweatshirt wrapped around her neck and was dressed in an orange shirt and red pyjamas, with a sock on one foot, the sources said.
