    The victim’s body was removed from the location and an autopsy was conducted. The San Diego Medical Examiner declared the cause of death to be asphyxia. However, due to the condition of the body, the victim has not been positively identified as Edwards Andrews. However, investigators believe this is the body of Andrews. DNA analysis of the remains will be conducted.

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to killing his pen pal, encasing the body in cement and living off the victim's savings and credit cards.

    Thomas Jeffrey Brooks faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty Thursday in San Diego to first-degree murder.

    Brooks killed 80-year-old Edward Andrews in May 2008 after befriending him. Brooks and an accomplice then encased Andrews' body in a concrete orb that was the centerpiece of a rock garden in Brooks' landlord's backyard in San Diego.

    The testimony came on the first day of a preliminary hearing for Thomas Jeffrey Brooks, 41, a parolee accused of killing Andrews and encasing his body in concrete outside a North Park home. Authorities have said Andrews died of asphyxiation.

    Rest in Peace Edward.
