Police in New York have arrested an 18-year-old woman in connection with a body found on the roof of a Bronx McDonald’s earlier this week.
Ayame Stamoulis was arrested Thursday night, ABC7 reported. She’s been charged with murder.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, police were called to the fast food restaurant in the Melrose neighborhood at about 6 a.m. on Wednesday. They found the body wrapped in plastic with a U-Haul blanket thrown over it.
The man, who has not yet been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. According to police sources who spoke with the New York Post, the 911 caller indicated that only half a body was located on the roof. However, authorities haven’t publicly revealed whether the body was fully intact.
A resident who lives near the Bronx McDonald’s told News12 that they smelled something foul Tuesday night but they believed it was a dead animal.
Police are reviewing surveillance footage to ascertain how the body got on the roof. The Medical Examiner’s Office is in the process of determining the man’s cause of death.
