Man Charged With Killing Two, Burning Bodies on Howard Beach

By

The murder of two people found bound and burned on Howard Beach was even more grisly than previously suspected. Police believe that Rudolph Superville, 22, and Gary Lopez, 25, were brutally killed while trying to rob the Bushwick home of a drug dealer; then their bodies were dumped and burned in an attempt to cover up the crime. “They picked the wrong dealers to rip apparently because when they got inside, their targets essentially were waiting for them. They took turns shooting, stabbing and beating them with a chair," said NYPD Spokesman Paul Browne. Rogelio Rodriguez, 34, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder and police are looking for at least four other suspects.
