Yusuf Ibrahim had been driving a Mercedes Benz owned by one of the dead men.

Police say they've nabbed a New Jersey man who fatally shot two men before beheading them, chopping off their hands and burying their remains in the woods of south Jersey.

Cops arrested Yusuf Ibrahim, 28, of Jersey City on Sunday after detectives found the bodies of the two men, aged 25 and 27, behind a home in Buena Vista Township, according to a press release. Their severed heads and hands were discovered at a separate burial site.

The investigation into the grisly murder began Thursday following reports of suspicious activity at the Buena Vista home. Cadaver dogs located the bodies, which both suffered a single gunshot wound to their chests.

Detectives found the bodies of two men, aged 25 and 27, behind a home in Buena Vista Township, N.J.

Authorities eventually identified Ibrahim as the prime subject. The alleged murderer had been driving a white Mercedes Benz last week that belonged to one of the men. Authorities found the car, which had been set on fire, abandoned in Philadelphia.

The two victims, also from Jersey City, were roommates, friends told Philadelphia’s NBC10. One of the men moved to the U.S. from Egypt four years ago.

Their connection to Ibrahim remains unclear.



Ibrahim allegedly hid the bodies in a wooded area in south Jersey.

Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Williams thanked police for working through the weekend's snowstorm to arrest Ibrahim.

"I hope the capture and arrest of this man for these heinous crimes will provide closure to the families of the victims and put the community of Buena Vista Township at ease," he said.

Ibrahim is currently being held at the Atlantic County jail. He faces charges of murder and desecration of human remains.
