She said that he returned Dec. 16, covered in blood.
She and Smith's mother later called the police, saying that they should check out the abandoned building. Authorities discovered Gonzalez's body Friday. Smith took a bus to Florida this same day.
Law enforcement authorities say that Smith met Gonzalez at the apartment building. Gonzalez asked Smith inside, worried that Smith might get sick if he slept outside.
Police say that Smith hacked Gonzalez to death, then ate his eye and part of his brain in a nearby cemetery.
They say that Smith admitted over the phone to having been in Gonzalez's squat and seen the body, the paper notes.
