Second Dead Grandmother Found in Closet, in Queens


Following the story in which a man had sex in his grandmother’s bed while her dead body was in the closet — a death which he is suspected of — we have, as the Daily News puts it, “ANOTHER dead grandmother found in closet.” In this case, 26-year-old Christopher Jackson is suspected in his grandmother Rosemarie Little’s death. She was apparently strangled and put in a basement closet in her Jamaica, Queens, home, where she was found on Monday at about 11:15 p.m. Little had raised Jackson since he was a child. Let’s stop killing the grandmas, please. There is no need for a trend piece on this. UPDATE: Jackson has been charged with second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence. [NYDN]
