    Dismembered Body Found In Plastic Containers In Backyard Shed

    June 2, 2014 1:18 PM

    DETROIT (WWJ) Authorities in Detroit are trying to determine the identity of a person whose dismembered body was found in plastic containers inside a shed behind a home.

    Police officer Adam Madera says Monday that the parts have been turned over to the medical examiner. They were found Friday night after a neighbor noticed an overwhelmingly foul odor and called 911...

    When I read the article about the stolen skin grafts in the local paper, I immediately thought of this case too. But I'm guessing tattooed skin can't be used for grafts.

    According to this news article, the remains are in cement in the containers: http://www.ourmidland.com/news/state...3f1af230b.html

    This states the remains might have been there a week (but who knows if they'd been preserved prior to being placed in the shed):

    I feel really bad for the neighbor who found something so horrific.

    Per NamUs, the estimated date of death for the UID male recently found in the containers was only five days, so he likely has no connection to the parts found in the sewer in 2012.

    I think that's the wrong dates (the Desha as opposed to Deisha).

    No obituary, but I'm 95% sure that this Deisha Dodd is the granddaughter of well known reggae producer/etc Coxsone Dodd (he died in 2004). Here is her Photobucket: http://s159.photobucket.com/user/pre...?sort=3&page=1

    And here is her in 2001, with her mother: http://reggaephotos.com/images/Coxso...06_16_01_4.jpg

    Unfortunately, this doesn't get us MUCH closer to the UID, unless LE get in touch with Deisha's mother Carol in Brooklyn and ask if she perhaps had a white boyfriend or close male friend around the time of her death...

    "DETROIT (AP) A medical examiner was trying Monday to determine the identity and cause of death for a person whose dismembered body was found encased in cement inside a shed behind a Detroit home.

    The cut-up corpse was found Friday by a neighbor who noticed an overwhelming foul odor in the shed and called police, said officer Adam Madera, a Detroit police spokesman.

    An officer discovered some of the parts after opening one of the containers. The gender of the person was not immediately known and the parts found "are believed to be the entire body," he said Monday."

    Hopefully the tattoo will bring some leads for an id.

    I wonder if the name from the tattoo is transcribed correctly. I couldn't find a Deisha but I did find something on Raisha Cole, who was murdered in Detroit on that date (murder still unsolved):

    interesting how the dates are written on the tat too

    8-23/81 - 4-7-2009

    is that a data entry error or does it truly read like that?

    why all - marks save the one which is /?

    I think that is worth submitting. Note that her name was Raisha Cole-Grace.
    Please be aware that what I type is my opinion.

    I found a twitter that's related, though it doesn't say much. Look for total_me at 6:17 (probably the first one):

    Thanks. I also found an Instagram post that references her murder, as well as what I think is her own MySpace page. She only had 19 friends though, and only one of the men appears to be white.
