Two Brooklyn Men Arrested After Burning Body of Victim Murdered in Boro Park
Two Brooklyn men were arrested Tuesday for shooting an acquaintance twice and dumping and burning his body in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Rolando Blanco-Duarte was shot twice inside a building on 41st Street near New Utrecht Avenue in Boro Park. The victim was then driven to the woods in Chester County, where the body was dumped and burned.
Luis Marroquin-Cerna, 27, and Rodolfo Lopez, 29, the alleged murderers, carried out the act on the night of June 18 after spending the evening at a bar with Blanco-Duarte, 32. After leaving the bar, the three ended up on 41st Street and had an argument that ended in Blanco-Duarte's murder.
The suspects later drove the victim to a wooded area in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where they dumped the victim's body and set it on fire in an attempt to conceal the crime, police said.
The NYPD was notified on Sunday that Blanco-Duarte's body had been found. This led to the suspect's arrest Tuesday afternoon. The pair has been charged with murder.
