A Brooklyn man faces murder charges for allegedly stabbing his father 46 times and then dumping his body on a street last month.

Joseph Adams, 26, whose last known residence was on East 35th Street in East Flatbush, was booked on Nov. 19 for murder, concealment of a human corpse, tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a weapon.

Law enforcement sources said Adams allegedly murdered his father, Christopher Adams, 49, of East 37th Street, and dumped his body concealed in a black bag at the corner of Van Sinderen Avenue and Herkimer Street. 

According to law enforcement sources, a passerby spotted the wrapped body among a pile of garbage bags near the location and called police. 

Officers from the 75th Precinct officially located Christopher Adams’ body at about 12:37 p.m. on Oct. 16.

The investigation that followed eventually linked Joseph Adams to the heinous crime; according to published reports, police tracked him down in Louisiana on a traffic stop, then extradited him back to Brooklyn.

WABC-TV reported that Joseph Adams’ has not offered detectives a reason as to why he killed his father, and has been largely silent since his arrest.
