A Chicago teenager is in custody this morning after a decapitated corpse was discovered by police around 2:00 a.m. on Christmas Day. Authorities were summoned to the macabre scene yesterday morning.
The headless body of an unnamed 41-year-old man was found inside a basement apartment. Authorities also discovered a knife nearby. Outside, an anonymous 18-year-old male was arrested by authorities "without incident." Chicago police have yet to ascertain the motive for the crime, and the relationship between the two men is as yet unknown.
Area detectives are currently investigating the crime further before levelling charges against the young man.
