An alleged double killer with terrifying eyelid tattoos has been arrested over claims he shot two men dead then roasted their corpses in a burning car.
Dakota ‘Outlaw” Briscoe was found driving in Albuquerque, New Mexico when a Border patrol agent said he discovered that the 34-year-old matched the description of double homicide suspect.
He was wanted in connection to setting an SUV on fire with two bodies inside, then carjacking a woman at gunpoint and speeding off into the night.
The torched bodies were later identified by authorities as his own friends Nathan Garcia and Eric Carbajal.
The bodies were burnt beyond recognition, but during the autopsy, the medical examiner found that both men were shot multiple times and were dead before they had been set on fire,
The victim’s girlfriends told police that Briscoe had accused Garcia of stealing from him while they were hanging out together. Carbajal was also selling meth for Briscoe, according to the police.
Meth was found in Garcia’s burnt pocket, along with five shell casings.
Briscoe was posing as his younger brother, Austin Epps, while driving his brother’s van and using his brother’s license.
When police pulled him over, court documents said the van’s registration was expired and Epps’ himself also had a warrant out for his arrest.
Briscoe was then taken into custody with police believing him to be Epps, but law enforcement eventually discovered his true identity, and charged him with double murder.
In all, Briscoe is charged with two open counts of murder, two counts of attempted armed robbery, six counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary of a vehicle, aggravated burglary, and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, shooting at or from a motor vehicle and aggravated arson.
