Man accused of killing Deaf girlfriend in New York
This isn’t a story for the faint-hearted. An American man has been accused of killing his Deaf girlfriend, then putting her body in a drum.
The 24 year old man, called Bismarck Lithgow, is alleged to have killed Francis Pallarano in his apartment. The police were only called when the man’s grandmother complained about the smell coming from his apartment. Lithgow has now been charged with second-degree murder.
It has been reported that Lithgow may also be deaf, and there have also been suggestions he suffers from a mental illness. It is believed that the couple met through Facebook.
