Rest On Porch

Short and sweet here.

Monique Exum is the most gigantic goddamned idiot I’ve come across in quite some time.

When she returned home to find that her 73-year-old roommate Johnny Davis had woken up dead in their apartment, she understandably freaked out just a tad. Who wouldn’t, right? But freaking out or not, what happened next defies…just about everything.

Monique Exum, 36, packed roomie Johnny Davis, 73, up after finding him dead in their Fish Ave. apartment May 31, prosecutors said. She insists she only removed the body to avoid trouble.

“My friend told me if someone dies in your apartment you go to jail, so I got really afraid,’ she told cops. “I didn’t know what to do.”

So she wheeled the suitcase down three flights of stairs to the porch of an abandoned house at 1309 Needham Ave. in Williamsbridge, prosecutors said. She wrote “rest in peace” on a strip of cardboard and left it atop the luggage.

And there Davis’ corpse sat for three months – until a neighbor on Sunday called cops to report a suspicious package. Investigators found his badly decomposed body inside and tracked down Exum.

Naturally, she doesn’t think she did anything wrong. Of course she doesn’t. That would require thinking, and we can see from this example how much of that she does.

So far she’s been charged with improper body removal and is being held on $500 bond.

The police investigation continues.
