Phoenix Decapitation

Officers were called to a terrible scene in Central Phoenix recently, writes Fox10 Phoenix. Investigators said they found a woman’s body decapitated and two dogs killed inside an apartment. On Sunday, police identified the victim as 49-year-old Trina Heisch.

According to Reuters, the scene was discovered Saturday morning after a neighbor decided to check on the welfare of a married couple he knew had mental health issues.

When the husband opened the door to the couple’s home he was naked, a portion of his left forearm was cut off, and his right eye was missing.  

The neighbor called police who entered the home and found the headless body of Trina Heisch, 49, in a bedroom closet along with two dogs. The animals had also been decapitated. Large amounts of blood was spread across floors, cabinets and walls of the apartment, police said.

The suspect has not been named, but police said he was believed to be Heisch’s husband. He was taken to an area hospital where he underwent surgery. Police said he admitted to killing “three of his family members” and will be charged in Heisch’s murder when released from the hospital.
