Woman Found ‘Stuffed and Folded’ in Tote Under Porch of Ohio Home, Suspect Arrested: Police
An Ohio man has been arrested after police found a woman “stuffed and folded” inside a small storage tote, according to authorities.
Around 3:30 p.m. on May 2, police received a call from a woman claiming there was a woman bound in a basement at a home in Cleveland, WOIO-TV reported.
Once at the residence, officers met Delontay Edmond-Geiger, who eventually let them enter the residence.
Police searched the basement of the home, but they only saw an air mattress and nothing else, officials said.
Cleveland Police spoke with a woman in the area later that night and asked if she knew about Edmond-Geiger’s home, WOIO-TV reported. The woman reportedly said she was previously attacked by Edmond-Geiger inside the home and showed officers photos of her own alleged assault.
After learning this information, police went back to Edmond-Geiger’s home a little after midnight on May 3.
While in the living room, an officer reportedly heard a moaning sound. This prompted Edmond-Geiger to allegedly increase the volume of the music playing on his phone whenever the moaning sound came through the house, according to WOIO-TV.
Police said Edmond-Geiger eventually told them there was a woman under the porch in a storage container.
