A man in New Jersey, who choked a woman to death throughout a physical contact, uploaded a photo of the victim’s dead body on Snapchat before he asked for help.
21-year-old Michael Gaffney who’s been kept in Bergen County since early November was remanded on Wednesday by Superior Court Judge Margaret Foti.
“She passed out. I don’t know what to do,” Gaffney wrote on Snapchat.
Gaffney was detained back on Nov. 2 and charged with manslaughter for murdering Francis Victoria Garcia, 19, by choking her while having physical contact.
Both had met through mutual friends and chose to have physical contact in Garcia’s car after visiting a Halloween party at a Hackensack high-rise building that Friday night.
After Gaffney choked Garcia, the woman got dead and Gaffney posted the picture to Snapchat before calling some friends for help.
Garcia was discovered in her car around 2:14 a.m. and was declared dead shortly after.
The man’s attorney, Adam Lustberg, told on Friday that he’s waiting for a more complete post-mortem report that may give a clearer answer to what occurred to Garcia.
So far, the medical examiner has declared Garcia died from neck compression and her blood alcohol content was almost 3 times the legal limit.
