From Black Voices — A 17-year-old girl was brutally stabbed to death then stuffed in to a closet allegedly by the 40-year-old male lover of her girlfriend. The Bronx, N.Y., man, who suspected that the teen was vying for the affections of his 25-year-old girlfriend, wanted to end the lesbian relationship for good.

The body of the young girl, Luzbenet Ramirez, was discovered Tuesday night in the apartment of her lover, Rosanna Castro.

Jose Mendez confessed to New York City police that his girlfriend, Castro, grabbed Ramirez by the neck and held her, as he unceasingly butchered the young girl about 30 times in a jealous rage. Mendez had convinced himself that killing Ramirez would put an end to the lesbian tryst permanently.

According to prosecutors who spoke to the New York Daily News, Mendez said, “She told me to get two garbage bags and we could put her on the roof and no one would find her. “She said she wanted to start again working on our relationship.”

The jealous lover, who had just only one day before been released from jail after a 35-day stint for assault, decided to instead, wrap the victim’s body in plastic and shove the remains in to Castro’s closet.

    this is sickening. i can’t believe they kept that poor girl’s body in their closet for a week. and the fact that a 40 year old man felt so threatned by a teenage girl that he had to kill her to protect his relationship is pathetic.

    i’m sorry but uhh.. okay lemme just say that i dont support murder okay?

    if you KNOW somebody is in a relationship already, why the fuck would you still try to pursue them? then, once you get that person you wanna get mad at them for cheating. um, dummy you were the “other woman/man” when he/she was dating somebody else.

    why the hell do people even try to date folks that already have a boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband ???

    and isnt a 17 year old dating a 25 year old illegal anyways?

      you don’t support murder, but you’re coming pretty close to saying that this teenager had a hand in her own death. first of all she was an adolescent and they are not known for rational and mature behavior, because they are not fully developed. second, she lost her father, and grief causes many people, especially hormonal teens, to act out in ways that inappropriate. maybe these are reasons she was engaged in this relationship in the first place. and no matter what she did she did not deserve to be stabbed 30 times and have her body stuffed into a closet for a week, with her family, who just lost their father, unaware of where she was, or if she was alive or dead. she didn’t deserve this and i resent the implication that she brought MURDER on herself.
