Homeless woman’s tent dismantled in NYC after she was released with no bail for concealing CORPSE


A homeless woman whose tent was dismantled by cops in a ritzy neighborhood of New York City had previously concealed the murdered corpse of a teenage girl, it is claimed.

Amber Wilson, 35, recently set up the tent in the median on Broadway at West 86th Street in the Upper West Side neighborhood with her partner Devonte Rose, 28. But the vagrants’ makeshift dwelling was taken down on Wednesday after complaints from neighbors.

After Wilson’s prime pitching spot hit the headlines, it emerged she was freed with no bail last month after allegedly helping cover-up the body of a murdered teenage girl in an abandoned Manhattan fish market, the New York Post noted.

The body of Rosalee Sanchez was found wrapped in plastic in the abandoned Fulton Fish Market on March 6. Wilson was arrested the same day for helping two other homeless suspects allegedly cover-up the 19 year-old’s body after she was murdered.

Videos taken on Wednesday show cops helping Wilson pack up the makeshift home into a number of garbage bags.

Cops at the scene are heard telling the couple they are going to try to help them get into a hotel while the excited couple responds: ‘God Bless You.’

Rose told a photographer for DailyMail.com that he was grateful that the tent was taken down.

‘I’m grateful though because I’m getting the help that I need,’ he said. ‘I’ll be a lot better when I come out and get everything together like I’m supposed to. I didn’t get no help before, I was worse than this. Worse. Way worse.’

She did not comment further on what help she is now receiving.  

Wilson told DailyMail.com that she moved to the city from Cumberland, Maryland about eight months ago. The couple then met at a deli in Harlem.

‘I was doing something I wasn’t supposed to be doing, and she wanted a cigarette. So I walked up to her and I said, You I’ll get you a cigarette no problem. So I got one for her,’ Rose said.

Wilson added: ‘And we’ve been together since.’

When asked why the couple decided to set up in the middle of Broadway, Wilson said they had been in front of another building nearby after someone notified them it had been abandoned ‘so nobody would bother us.’

‘But then they sent six cops and sanitation workers,’ she said.

Wilson said the sound of the subway was not too loud and found comfort in the ‘clank’ of the train.

‘It’s like a beat and we love music. We were actually going to record it so that he could freestyle to it, and rap to it,’ she said.

The couple agreed that the intersection where they pitched their tent was among the safest places they have lived.

‘We’ve been other places and people like to steal things and take from us. When it rained and destroyed our box before we had a tent, I had all of my stuff over here and nobody touched anything the whole night. But when we are in other places, they take stuff.’

Rose said he had worked at a Bath & Body Works in Brooklyn’s Kings Mall but claimed that he stopped working there over a family matter.

The couple are seen joyously cheering and waving at a bus as it turned past them during the interview.

Wilson said she had worked as a seasonal worker at a Macy’s department in Maryland and that the two are currently looking for new jobs. 

She said they have had difficulty finding work because they don’t have a computer to create and print resumes.

‘In the situation that we’re in, it’s not to easy to get a job.’

The two both have case workers, who are working to get them a permanent shelter.

The couple said that Mayor Bill de Blasio needs to help homeless people more.

‘We even give back to homeless people when we’re homeless and he needs to get it together,’ Wilson said.

They said cops had previously tried to ‘bribe’ them to move the tent, offering them a meal to pack up.

‘Nope, not happening,’ Rose said.

Last month, the body of Rosalee Sanchez, 19, was found wrapped in plastic in an abandoned fish market now covered in graffiti in New York City.

Sanchez was found around 9.20am on the second-floor staircase of the former Fulton Fish Market and a homeless man admitted to beating and killing her, NYPD sources told the New York Post at the time.

Austin Boehm, 25, confessed to killing Sanchez after he tried to check himself into the psychiatric ward at Bellevue Hospital, sources told the outlet.

Boehm and a second suspect, 20-year-old Christian Mercado, were both hit with murder charges.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by the outlet, Boehm admitted that he stabbed and beat Sanchez while Mercado confessed to hitting her with a shovel and strangling her with a rope.

Boehm and Mercado have both pleaded not guilty to their murder charges before judge Gregory Carro.

Wilson had allegedly been living in the fish market with Boehm and Mercado. No motive for the murder has been given.
