darwin jackson bronx Tihesha Savage

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested for shooting his mother dead in their Bronx apartment on Wednesday and tossing her body on the street like a piece of trash afterwards, the New York Daily News reports.

He was charged with murder, manslaughter and gun possession charges.

Darwin Jackson was taken into New York Police Department custody after he identified his mother’s body and spitting on the ground, according to witnesses at the crime scene. “He said, ‘Oh my God, that’s my mom,’ and he spit and walked away,” neighbor Sonia Carrion told the Daily News. “He actually spit.”

Jackson was calm at the sight of his dead mother while his 7-year-old sister, Ashley, was “hysterical,” according to witnesses at the scene. The teen reportedly shot his mother, Tihesha Savage, 34, during an argument over his late nights out of the house, according to a report by the New York Post.

He then allegedly folded his mother’s body into a bin and dragged it down several flights of stairs from their fourth-floor apartment. A trail of blood was reportedly found from the apartment to the dumpster where the body was eventually found.

The Daily News has more details on this story:

A building super spotted the tan rectangular bin near some bushes on Macombs Road about 9:10 a.m. Wednesday. When the super took off the lid, he found a horror. Inside was Savage’s crumpled body, with what appeared to be a gunshot wound on her head.

Savage was swaddled in a fleece Scooby-Doo blanket, and more soiled blankets were found in a nearby courtyard, witnesses said. Police were summoned.

Amid the commotion, Jackson came downstairs and walked over. “Ewww! Oh my God!” he said, according to Carrion.

“Everybody saw him spit when he saw the body,” she added.

Neighbors said that Jackson seemed calm while his younger sister was hysterical.

“I asked him what went on,” neighbor Kevin McCorkle, 29, said. “He said he doesn’t know. He wasn’t crying. He was just mad. The little girl kept asking me, ‘Where is my mommy?’”

The teen was taken to the 44th Precinct stationhouse in a patrol car, where he was questioned until he confessed, police sources said. A building security camera captured Jackson dragging the container across Macombs Road and leaving it there, the sources said.

Several neighbor’s told The Post that Savage was a good mother who was raising a troubled son. “I’d go past the apartment and hear them arguing back and forth, sometimes for staying out after his curfew, hanging out with the wrong crowd,” said Ralph Tejada.
Sonia Carrion, who walked Ashley to school each day, said Savage “was always looking for her son. He is always in the streets giving her a hard time.”
Police were called to the mother’s apartment in July of 2011 after an argument between she and her son got out of control.
Ironically, the mother’s caring ways were reported by the Daily News back in 2002 when the paper did a report on a bus incident. Savage was quoted as saying that she preferred walking her son, then just 6-years-old, to and from school because there was no monitor on his yellow bus.
