Brooklyn Man Charged After Body Found in Storage Container

View Comments ()



    Authorities charged a 24-year-old man with murder Sunday after police discovered a body that had been repeatedly stabbed and stuffed into a large, black plastic storage container in Brooklyn.

    Joshua Simser was arrested after investigators found the body in Simser's red-brick, two-family home on East 54th Street in Flatlands.

    Investigators went to the home after a Brooklyn nightclub owner called police to report that Simser, a bouncer at the club, admitted to his boss that he'd killed a man.

    Simser was friends with the man he killed and had a fight with him, according to police.
    Information on an attorney for Simser was not immediately available.
