    NY - Lydia Frazier, 47, beaten to death, Bronx, 12 March 2004

    A 47-year-old mother who had been missing for more than a year was found dead in the Bronx, her mutilated body stuffed inside a storage bin, cops said yesterday.
    Lydia Frazier, a mother of three, had been beaten in the head and her legs had been cut off, police said.

    She was found Friday morning after a worker at the Marble Hill apartments, where the woman lived, smelled a foul odor coming from a storage bin, police said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Resolution to this case!


    Bronx District Attorney Robert T. Johnson announced today that a 42 year-old Bronx man has
    pled guilty to the 2004 murder of his 47 year-old neighbor
    Edward Smalls, of 2861 Exterior Street, pled guilty to Murder in the 2nd degree in the death of
    Lydia Frazier, in March 2004. Under the terms of the plea agreement, Smalls will be sentenced to an
    indeterminate term of 15 years to life imprisonment when he appears before Acting State Supreme Court
    Justice William Mogulescu on Tuesday, November 17, 2006 in Part M30. The People had recommended
    that the defendant receive a sentence of 20 years to life imprisonment.

    In a written confession, Smalls admitted that on March 12, 2004, he struck the victim in the head
    with a hammer, dismembered her body in his bathtub, and then placed her corpse in a 50 gallon plastic
    container. Smalls stated that he then placed the victim in his bedroom closet until April 2005.

    Smalls further confessed that he could no longer live with the corpse and disposed of it behind
    his building on April 15, 2005. Frazier's body was discovered by building maintenance workers along
    with the knives used to dismember the victim later that day.

    This case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Cristina S. Park of the Gangs/ Major Case Bureau.
