In January 19, 2006, Dean Commanda stabbed his best friend, Chad Largy to death. He then dismembered his body in his apartment bathroom, leaving two of Largy's arms in a dumpster to be found by a homeless man who was looking for bottles. The man found one of the arms and went to a nearby apartment to tell it's resident what he had discovered and to get the police to the scene. Another arm was found in the dumpster by police. Eventually, police got a warrant for Commanda's unit (214) after finding evidence at a burn site that linked Commanda to the murder. This included burned knives, a doorstop spring, and a reciept. Commanda also burned out a u-haul truck and his own car which were both discovered later. During the execution of the warrant, police discovered the unit in ruins with carpet, baseboards, and other flooring having been removed in an attempt to clean up the scene. Commanda was sentenced to 10 years in prison and is now out.
