Marco Tulio Flores, 17, was arraigned on Massachusetts Murder Charges this morning in East Boston District Court in connection with the death of Jaime Galdamez, 28, who was found dead lying in bed in the basement of an East Boston home Monday morning.
According to Boston Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, the body of Jaime Galdamez was discovered Monday morning when the Boston Fire Department responded to 877 Saratoga Street for a fire in the basement. A search of the basement revealed the body of Jaime Galdamez, who was lying in his bed. Because he was bound with duct tape, Boston Police Homicide investigators were called to initiate a murder investigation.
Today, however, prosecutors reported that Marco Tulio Flores went to the Boston Police allegedly admitted that he was the person responsible for the death of Jaime Galdamez. In his statement, Flores allegedly explained that the two had a verbal argument, which then became physical and led to Flores allegedly strangling Galdamez. He had bound Galdamez with duct tape and then set him on fire.
At this time, the Massachusetts Office of the Medical Examiner has not yet pronounced a cause of death.
In the meantime, Marco Tulio Flores has been held without bail on First Degree Murder Charges.
