*A 15-year-old Brooklyn girl has confessed to the gruesome murder of her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. After committing the murder, she headed to Times Square to bring in the new year.
According to reports, Destiny Garcia, who lived with the two adults in the Sheepshead Bay Apartments, shot her mother, 38-year-old Rosie Sanchez several times and stabbed 40-year-old Anderson Nunez in addition to shooting him.
Police believe the deaths occurred on December 27, and that Garcia, who is charged with Murder 2 and possession of a firearm–as an adult, lived with the bodies until they were discovered.
Garcia told detectives that the shootings were in self-defense. A claim the authorities did not take seriously. Destiny’s mother was found sitting slumped over in a chair, while her boyfriend was face-down on the floor.
What an ironic twist. I can pretty much assume, when her mother named her “Destiny,” it was based on dreams of a different nature.
So incredibly sad.
