A young man in Pennsylvan, beat his roommate to death during a heated argument over missing bee and then took photos of the dead body, police said. Justin Vankirk was arrested Tuesday for fatally assaulting his roommate, Charles Parker, with punches and kicks at their Brentwood home, according to KDKA.
Vankirk called police himself to report his roommate had died and later gave “various accounts” and timelines of the fatal beating to investigators. It was not immediately clear how long Parker had been dead when Vankirk alerted authorities, a criminal complaint showed.
During interrogation Vankirk admitted he had gotten into a confrontation with Parker after noticing that the roommate had stolen some beer he had bought.
After striking Parker repeatedly over the head and face, Vankirk dragged his roommate from the bedroom to the dining area “because he did not want any blood to get on the carpet,” cops said. At the time of his arrest, Vankirk reportedly had blood stains on his shoes.
After his arrest, investigators seized Vankirk’s phone. Cops found a photo of Parker lying lifeless on the dining room floor, on the phone.

“Looks like your home is now on this list,” one Facebook user commented on the ominous post.
