Lucky the authorities found her remains. Much of Detroit is completely abandoned. You could conceivably dump a body in some parts of the city where it might never be found.
The ex-boyfriend of a Detroit woman whose body was found stuffed in a trash container on Detroit's west side last December was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday in connection with the slaying.
Maxwell Brack, 24, was charged earlier this year with open murder, which carries a possible penalty of life in prison without parole, but was convicted on a second-degree murder charge, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release. Brack was arrested in connection with the killing in February.
Kajavia Globe was reported missing by her family on , and police found the 24-year-old's body behind a house in the 18500 block of Fielding a few days later. The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office said earlier this year that an autopsy failed to reveal how Globe died, although it is being classified as a homicide. Spokesman Lloyd Jackson said "a thorough investigation, including toxicology screening" was conducted, but the official manner of death was ruled indeterminate.
Globe was last seen in the area of McNichols and the Southfield service drive. A person wearing a horror mask and driving her 2003 Chevrolet Impala was captured on videotape taking money from her account at a bank ATM that day. Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the family told investigators it was "highly unusual" for Globe to not contact them.
According to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, Brack will be sentenced on before Judge Cynthia Hathaway.
