A Texas man allegedly admitted to killing his wife on Wednesday after police reportedly discovered her dismembered body in their home.
Waller County deputies received a call from Jared Dicus’ parents regarding the death of a woman — reportedly leading them to a home where they found a woman’s remains and copious amounts of blood. Dicus and his wife, Anggy Diaz, both 21, lived in a secondary home behind the parents’ residence, where police believe the murder occurred with a kitchen knife, according to KPRC.
Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry revealed that Diaz appeared to have been decapitated, and her body was left in the secondary residence. Guidry said Dicus has confessed to the slaying, according to KHOU.
“They [Dicus’ parents] were addressed by the suspect [Dicus], and when they saw something wasn’t feeling right for them, they approached the house that they were living in, and that’s when they found what they found,” the sheriff said, per WTXF.
The New York Post reported that Dicus is believed to have killed Diaz the night before her body was found. Guidry said that cops previously responded to the home for disturbances.
A motive has not been disclosed. Various reports indicated that Dicus and Diaz were married in October 2022.
Dicus is expected to face murder charges.
