A Florida woman was arrested Tuesday after allegedly zipping her boyfriend in a suitcase and leaving him to die — all while taunting him on video.
Sarah Boone, 42, told detectives she was playing a game of hide-and-seek with her partner, Jorge Torrez Jr., on Monday while drinking alcohol.
According to a report on news station WKMG, Boone told cops that on Monday they both agreed it would be funny if Torrez hopped in a blue suitcase in her home outside Orlando,
Boone claims to have forgotten all about the human cargo — falling asleep in her bed for hours before realizing Torrez was still inside, according to the report.
She told deputies that she woke up to her cellphone ringing and went to go check on Torrez, also 42, only to find him unresponsive and not breathing.
She called 911 that afternoon and police responded to find Torrez dead.
Deputies said there was a small cut on the victim’s lip and bruising around his eye and that they retrieved two videos from Boone’s phone in which she teases Torres as he’s trapped in the suitcase.
Boone can be heard laughing in one video as Torres calls out her name and says he can’t breathe.
“Yeah that’s what you do when you choke me,” Boone said in one of the videos, according to the report.
One video shows the suitcase facing down with Torres pushing in an attempt to get out. A second shows the luggage in a different position as Torres calls out to Boone.
Florida deputies say Jorge Torrez Jr, who was found with bruises and cuts, suffocated after being trapped up in the airless suitcase
Murder suspect Sarah Boone seen in handcuffs was charged with Second Degree Murder in the death of 42-year-old Jorge Torres Jr., who died after Boone zipped him into a suitcase, and didn’t return for hours.
As Torres continues to yell that he can’t breathe, Boone continues to mock him in one of the clips.
“That’s on you. Oh, that’s what I feel like when you cheat on me,” Boone said.
According to police reports Boone and Torrez both records of domestic abuse against each other.
Deputies told the outlet they decided to arrest Boone after discovering “inconsistencies” between her statements and what was captured on camera.
Based on Boone’s inconsistent statements on what happened and the video recordings investigators decided to charge her with second-degree murder.
