The woman is said to have been murdered by one 83-year-old serial killer died of “homicidal violence,” including blunt force trauma to the head, the New York coroner said Saturday.
Harvey Marcelin, who identifies as a transgender woman, is accused of killing Susan Leyden, 68, and then dismembering her body. Leyden’s severed head was found in Marcelin’s apartment in Cypress Hills and her torso was found in a shopping cart on the street.
Marcelin was caught on video while being lugged around a severed leg wrapped in plastic in her motorized wheelchair, police officers said.
Leyden, who lived at an LGBTQ seniors’ center in Fort Greene, was seen on surveillance video pushing a bag into Marcelin’s apartment on February 27 – and was never heard from again.
The couple had met on social media two years ago, police said.
Marcelin had spent more than 50 years in state prison for killing two girlfriends.
