Navar Terrance Beverly was arrested after police noticed that his selfies on Twitter were posed with his father’s dead body.
The 38-year-old Maryland man was caught in his crimes after he strangled his father and posted selfies with the body, before taking off in his car. Police were able to catch him after a short chase, and put him behind bars.
The police department said that they had been called to the house before for domestic disputes between the son and the father.
The Daily Mail reports:
The images of Mr Pinkney’s body have since been removed from Twitter.
According to the police statement of probable cause, Bowie City Police Department were alerted to 911 call where an eyewitness aid ‘son had killed my husband’.
The witness told police that Beverly said to her, ‘I told you I would do it’, before admitting his father was ‘dead in the garage’.

According to an eyewitness report, Beverly strangled Mr Pinkney in a chokehold until a witness intervened.
Court records show Mr Pinkney ‘suffered apparent trauma to the right eye, and bruising to the left side of the neck’. His body has been sent to the coroner for examination.
