Caregiver Arrested for Concealing Dead Roommate in Garbage Bag

A Bronx caregiver, Inga Bearden, has been arrested and charged with concealment of a corpse after allegedly placing her deceased 70-year-old roommate, Margie Ann William-Collins, inside a garbage bag instead of immediately contacting emergency services. The incident occurred in the luxury Bronx apartment that Bearden shared with her two teenage children.

According to law enforcement sources, William-Collins had taken a long shower on Thursday before settling down in the living room, which served as their shared bedroom. When Bearden went to check on her, she discovered that William-Collins had passed away. Instead of calling 911, Bearden contacted her husband, who does not reside in the apartment. Allegedly, he assisted Bearden in placing William-Collins’ body inside a black garbage bag.

Sources indicate that Bearden claimed they took this action due to William-Collins having lice, expressing concerns about the potential spread of the infestation. It was William-Collins’ daughter-in-law who ultimately contacted emergency services to report the death.

The cause of William-Collins’ death is currently under investigation. Bearden informed the police that William-Collins had a history of ingesting silica gel packets, which are typically found in shoeboxes and are non-toxic.

Bearden’s husband is currently being sought by the police. The deceased, Bearden, and her two children had been residing in the two-bedroom apartment since October. The upscale building offers various amenities, including a game room, pet spa, yoga studio, and business center, as per StreetEasy.
