Maryland man kills father, posts pictures of body online.

Maryland Son Kills Father, Posts Selfies With The Corpse Online: ‘This What Yall Wanted’

It doesn’t’ get weirder than this.

A Maryland son is accused of killing his 65-year-old stepfather, taking selfies with the corpse, and then posting the images online on his Twitter account, according to reports emerging in the local media. While the motivation behind the son killing his father is not yet known, it is believed that the relationship between the two was not always cordial, according to local media station WTRV-TV. The police have not yet released the identity either of the victim or the suspect, but according to WDCW, the son of the victim identified him as being a certain Ronald Pinkney Sr.

“He just wanted to get him some help. It’s sad on both ends, like I know my stepbrother’s about to spend the rest of his life in jail,” said the victim’s biological son.

According to WJLA, Bowie Police received a 911 call from inside a Dalby Court home around 8 a.m. Saturday morning, after it appeared that someone had posted pictures with the dead body of a man — believed to be his stepdad — having strangled the old man to death.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the dead body of the man in the garage but the suspect was nowhere to be found. They issued a quick lookout, and within a few hours, a Prince George’s County Police officer spotted the possible suspect’s car near Hampton Mall and began a pursuit. The chase finally ended on foot, after which the suspect was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

“We immediately began looking for the vehicle, located it and subsequently apprehended the vehicle,” said Prince County Police Chief Hank Stawinski.

“I don’t fully understand why people are finding themselves in a place where they’re resolving a dispute and ending with a death.”

Neighbors of the old man expressed shock at the happenings, saying it was unbelievable that domestic disputes had to lead to such a grim end all so often.

‘It’s sad, it’s right in front of you, it’s hard to fathom I saw him yesterday and not today, it’s heartbroken,” said Andrea Dickson, a neighbor.

“I’ve seen the sheriff come there before stuff like that, but I don’t think it was something dramatically serious for this to happen. You don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, do you?”

This is not the first time that a suspect has posted pictures of his victim on social media. Last year, a Texas man, Kenneth Alan Amyx, uploaded the picture of himself with the corpse of his dead girlfriend with the caption, “Please Pray for us.”
