ABT Gets Called for a Triple Homicide

In terms of homicide cleanup or crime site remediation, the involvement of a professional cleaning service is crucial.

Whether it is a homicide, suicide, an accidental or unattended death, the situation will normally involve biohazards that require expert attention. Additionally, the scene needs to be cleaned and restored to its original condition as quickly as possible to ease the minds of everyone involved.

In the case of a triple homicide, outside of Baltimore, Maryland, ABT was called in to handle, we had our work cut out for us. We received the call on a Tuesday from a homeowner is a state of shock. The caller explained that he owned a three bedroom townhouse in a relatively new neighborhood close to Baltimore.

Pulling up to the townhouse community, we were met at the front gate by a police detective who buzzed us in. The detective jumped into our van and led the way to the residence, filling in some of the details of what to expect once inside.

A lot of blood… and the smell could gag a maggot‘, he said. Then we geared up and headed inside.

Immediately the odor of decomposition assaulted my senses, making my eyes and nose burn then water. The detective led us down a hallway into a back bedroom where something had obviously gone terribly wrong. The bed was covered in blood, and as we got started on the room, the officer began his tale of love gone bad.

The room we worked in had belonged to a young female student whose boyfriend had mistakenly believed she had cheated in him with her male roommate. He had flown into a rage, stabbing and strangling her in her bed before moving to the next room where the male tenant stayed. There the killer waited in the dark for the room owner to return from work. As he walked into his room, the attacker struck from behind, breaking his neck and then dropping his lifeless body to the floor. I’ll never forget that room… The bodies had not been discovered for a week and with the heat wave we had been experiencing, the state of decomp was severe. The result was a perfect outline in bodily fluids of where the man had fallen.

It Almost Ended Until the Return of the Third Roommate

She didn’t stand a chance as he beat her to death on the couch in the living room. Then he fled the scene.
