Woman whose dismembered corpse found in Bronx parks murdered by her best friend’s boyfriend

She was killed by her best friend’s boyfriend.

Lisa Marie Velasquez, the woman whose body parts were found stuffed in plastic trash bags in two Bronx parks, was last seen rushing to the rescue of her pal Ciara Martinez, but, cops say, she ran into Daquan Wheeler, who beat her to death then butchered her to conceal his crime.

In yet another bizarre twist of an already horrific case, Velasquez saw her own pregnant mother murdered in front of her 12 years ago.

She was just 12 years old when she and her two younger siblings, David and Vanessa, saw their mom’s ex-boyfriend drag her into her bedroom and stab her to death as his current girlfriend held her down.

On Friday, police found two bags of body parts in Crotona Park belonging to Velasquez. Cops found three more bags at Barretto Point Park in Hunts Point on Tuesday night and soon determined the remains belonged to the 24-year-old Velasquez, who died from multiple blows to the head.

Cops on Wednesday arrested Martinez, 30, for helping her boyfriend Wheeler, 31, kill Velasquez and hide the corpse, police sources said.
