My Daddy Ate My Eyes Out, Man Dies After Eating Cocaine Out Of Brother’s Ass, and Crash Caused By Woman Shaving Her Vagina While Driving are just a few titles that come to mind, and now I have this one.
There aren’t a lot of details surrounding the actual murder, but on Sunday, police responded to a call regarding a burning vehicle at a public housing complex.
Once there, officers found 49-year-old Paul R. Potter standing near a burning vehicle and two burning apartments. In their report, the officers say they watched as Potter hurled two objects at nearby witnesses.
Those two objects turned out to be a pair of human arms.
Police and firefighters would find the arms’ owner in one of the burning apartments. Both of the apartments were strewn with blood, but one contained the armless corpse of Potter’s neighbor, who had also been stabbed multiple times. Witnesses say Potter had been involved in some kind of altercation earlier in the day.
Police allege Potter had set the fires in an effort to cover up the murder of his neighbor, and had blood on both of his hands. Potter was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, second-degree arson and felony tampering with a motor vehicle. He is being held on a $1 million cash only bond.
Authorities are withholding the identity of the victim until his family could be located and notified.Tags: arms, Crime, dismemberment, Missouri, Murder, Paul R. Potter
