A 21-year-old man was convicted of killing his cousin, stealing money from her and then leaving her body in a storage container on the streets in the Bronx, according to officials.

In Feb. 2022, the body of 35-year-old Nisaa Walcott was found in a storage bin across the street from a storage facility in New York City, as Front Page Detectives previously reported.

By using surveillance video recovered from her apartment building and near the site where the victim was dumped, investigators were able to connect Khalid Barrow to Walcott’s death. He was arrested a day after her body was found by a man who frequented the area looking for items to resell, WNBC reported.

Officials said Barrow used Walcott’s cell phone to throw off family members who were worried about her whereabouts after she hadn’t been seen for days. Text messages reportedly sent from her phone, however, were not consistent with previous conversations she had with the recipients.

Surveillance video also showed Barrow at Walcott’s apartment building. In the footage, he could be seen removing a large, plastic container with the help of a second individual. They then transported the container and unloaded it at the spot in the Bronx where her body was found, officials said.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said Barrow concealed the body for days “while he stole her money, used her apartment and tricked her young child to cover his tracks.”

On Nov. 29, a jury found Barrow guilty of second-degree murder, concealment of a human corpse and other charges related to the death of Walcott, Bragg announced.

“Her death left a hole in her family that can never be filled, and my heart goes out to her loved ones," Bragg said. "I thank the members of the jury for the time and attention they paid to the evidence in this deeply disturbing case."
