Bitcoin Trader ‘Troy Woody’ Accused of Killing Girlfriend as Chilling Video Evidence Emerges
In a gruesome case of misplaced love, it has just come to light that a Bitcoin trader by the name of ‘Troy Woody Jr’ (along with his business partner) have been accused of killing Woody’s partner ‘Tomi Michelle Masters’ (who at the time of her death was alleged to be just 21 years of age).
Through security footage that was sourced by local police officials earlier this week, Woody along with his business partner ‘Mir Islam’ can be seen loading a box with Masters’ naked body into a taxi (before eventually dumping it into the river Pasig that traverses through the city of Manila).
According to the Daily Mail, Troy Woody, Jr., 21, has now been taken into custody along with his associate ‘Islam’ (who too is being charged with aided murder and assault).
A Background Of The Case
According to a host of different media outlets, it is being claimed that Woody, Masters, and Islam had flown into Manila last month for a short holiday. However, after their sojourn started to extend indefinitely, there started to arise certain legal issues pertaining to their visa statuses.
As a result of all this confusion, Masters reportedly told Woody that she wanted to return home to Indiana— following this episode, the couple had a massive argument which apparently led to Woody ‘killing Masters’ and then dumping her body into a taxi inside of a brown cardboard box (the taxi was hailed using Woody’s personal smartphone).
Some Additional Details Emerge
As per the official murder report filed by local police authorities, Masters was strangled then duct-taped and finally dumped into a brown cardboard box. All of this took place early on December 23rd at around 2:40 a.m. local time.
After throwing her body into a local river, the two men can be seen returning to their taxi— following which they proceeded to go to a local shopping mall.
At this point in the article, it is also worth pointing out that both Woody and Islam have a big social media presence— this is because both of the aforementioned individuals have reportedly made a lot of fast money through the buying and selling of Bitcoin (as well as other premier cryptocurrencies).
To be even more specific, Woody has often been seen on his Instagram page boasting about how much money he has and how he uses this cash to: “live lavishly and buy drugs”.
In addition to all this, it is also being reported that soon after dropping Woody and Islam off, their cab driver John Kenneth Quimba alerted the police about the two men as well their suspicious activities.
Within an hour or so, Manila police officials were able to recover Masters’ decaying body inside a garbage bag. The body was laden with a lot of nicks and scratches which indicates a sign of struggle on the victims end.
Local Police Authorities Issue A Statement
In regards to the case, Superintendent Igmedio Bernaldez, who has been overseeing this entire episode spoke to the media wherein he told reporters that both of the accused individuals were from the United States and that they have both been arrested and booked (since the issue has come to light).
He then went on to add that they are both “blaming each other” for Masters’ death but have admitted to dumping her body into the Pasig river.
On the matter, Bernaldez further noted:
“We have yet to establish the motive. The three were here on vacation. If you ask the boyfriend, he will point to his friend as the killer. But if you ask the other suspect, he will say it was his friend who killed her. They are being questioned and the home they were staying at is being searched for evidence.”
In closing, there are some other details regarding the murder which our readers may find worthwhile. For example, Mandaluyong police Senior Supt. Moises Villaceran Jr. came forth yesterday and stated that Masters’ autopsy confirms that she was suffocated to death.
Additionally, both of the accused individuals are members of an online extremist group called ‘UGNazi’ (Underground Nazi Hacktivist Group) — an online consortium of web developers who are known to hack into various high profile websites.
Last but not least, in the past, Islam has been to prison on several charges of ‘swatting’. For those not aware of what ‘swatting’ is, it is basically the act of “false reporting” a serious incident such as a bomb threat, murder, or hostage situation, so as to to draw in a large number of emergency responders to a designated area.
