The 83-year-old woman accused of killing and dismembering her girlfriend was filmed dragging a severed human leg on her motorized wheelchair in Brooklyn, police said Friday.
Harvey Marcelin, a transgender woman who goes by the name Marceline Harvey, was captured in a 99 cent store with her body part wrapped in plastic, according to undated video released by the NYPD.
Cops say the same plastic was used to wrap the dismembered body of Harvey’s friend, Susan Leyden, whose torso was found in a shopping cart last week. Leiden’s leg was found on the street a few days later.
Harvey was charged on Thursday with murder in the death of Leiden, 68, who went missing on March 2.
“This is a horrific and barbaric homicide, which resulted in the elimination of the headless person in our corner of New York and the disappearance of a serial killer from our streets,” the chief of detectives said. of the NYPD, James Essig, during a press conference at police headquarters.
“This is just the latest in a list of heinous offenses committed in a lifetime by Miss Harvey and we can only hope there is nothing more she can do,” Essig said.
Essig said Harvey had known his victim for two years and met on social media.
Harvey had served more than 50 years in prison in connection with two separate murders of ex-girlfriends, according to state records.
