Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported the arrest of a third suspect in the case of a Camden man killed in 2013 whose remains were found in a bin on the side of Interstate 676.
LaQuan Shaw, M/21, of Camden, is the third person charged with Murder in the killing of 23-year-old Adrian Rivera. Shaw’s arraignment is scheduled today at 3:30 p.m. in courtroom 36 in Camden County Superior Court. Also charged with Murder are Lashaun Brown-Bunch, M/21, of Camden, and a 16-year-old Willingboro male, who was charged earlier this month.
According to a probable cause statement, in August 2013 Rivera took $2,000 in narcotics he had been responsible for selling and Brown-Bunch decided to exact a penalty.
It is alleged Rivera died in August 2013 at an abandoned home on the 1700 block of Norris Street where Rivera had been living. Evidence gathered at the home included blood in a second story bedroom. All three defendants are accused of participating in the assault and choking of Rivera. A witness told investigators he saw Brown-Bunch hacking at Rivera with a sharp object while the victim was attacked by a pit bull.
Rivera’s remains were put into a red recycling receptacle and weren’t found until November 2013 at mile marker 1.6 on I-676. It is alleged another man, Shawn Mosley, M/34, of Camden, disposed of the remains. Mosley was charged May 19 with Hindering Apprehension and Desecration of Human Remains.
All persons charged with criminal offenses are innocent unless and until convicted in a court of law.
