    A Newark Police Officer struck and killed a nurse with his car and then drove the body to his mother’s house seeking advice before returning to the scene with the body, officials said on Wednesday.

    Louis Santiago, 25, of Bloomfield was arrested and charged with reckless vehicular homicide, desecrating human remains and other charges after he hit and killed 29-year-old nurse Damian Dymka, of Garfield, on the Garden State Parkway, according to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

    Santiago’s mother, 53-year-old Annette Santiago, and passenger Albert Guzman, 25, were charged with conspiracy to desecrate human remains, hindering apprehension and conspiracy to hinder apprehension and tamper with physical evidence.

    On Monday, Nov. 1 around 3 a.m. Santiago — who was off duty at the time — was driving a 2005 Honda Accord northbound on the Parkway near exit 151 when he drifted from his lane into the right shoulder and struck and killed Dymka, prosecutors said.

    Neither Santiago nor Guzman called 911 or tried to assist the man, officials said, but returned to the scene multiple times before Santiago loaded Dymka’s body into his car. The two drove to Santiago’s home in Bloomfield, where they discussed what to do with the body.

    Santiago then returned to the scene as his father — a lieutenant in the Newark Police Department — called 911 and reported that his son was in an accident. Police arrived and found Dymka’s dead body in the back seat of the Accord.

    In addition to vehicular homicide, Santiago’s additionally charged with leaving the scene of a crash resulting in death, endangering an injured victim, desecrating/moving human remains, hindering one’s own apprehension, conspiracy to hinder prosecution, tampering with physical evidence, obstructing the administration of law, and two counts of official misconduct.

    All three have been released with conditions, according to the Prosecutor’s office.

    So they looking to charge the father who made him go back to the scene and report it? I don’t know what they charged him with but the article said all three were conditionally released.

      I got caught in that traffic jam that morning. It was miles long.

      And when I got to the scene where it occurred, there was a Trooper and an Investigator standing around looking at a pair of shoes on the bridge.

        I think that meant the driver, his mother and the passagener

          I felt guilty for asking my mom to cover for me when cutting school. Taking home a dead body; no problem!

            You are right. But I am curious, what active participation did the mother do? He drove to her, maybe asked what they should do. Maybe said something then said something like ask your father. That’s not exactly conspiracy in my mind if no active participation took place on her part with some sort of renunciation on her part. Unless he called her, and she said come home with the body

              That is so fucked up. Wow.

                She may have tried to render aid. Something like this happened to a childhood friend of mine. I was with her a week before her boyfriend killed her. I can't remember the exact circumstance of her murder but after he killed her, he brought his mom over to help because she was the school nurse. She tried to bring her back to life by giving her a treack. I don't remember their sentence but both went to prison. I was just 15 or 16 years old when this happened.

                  This happened about 1 mile from me . The kid must have been drunk . No taking back what ya did , all you can do is minimize the damage . Call 911 render aid . I cant imagine being a Cop and 1 day later being an ex-cop , going to prison . Even if you dont go to prison you go from making 100,000 + a year to almost nothing in the private sector .

                    Another page from the file of Ripley’s “Believe it or Not!” Hi, um, I just ran over and killed this person and thought I’d bring the body home for analysis and discussion on appropriate actions to take. What time is dinner? 🤔

                    I would never raise my voice because it’s frightening to people. Instead, I would calmly state "my name is Kenda from the Police Department; you are under arrest for murder. If you don’t do what I say, I’m gonna kill you right here, right now!" - Lt. Joe Kenda - Homicide Hunter

                      Terrible situation all around.

                      The midnight dinner scene at mom's in Goodfellas comes to mind. 🙄

                        I think the mom was with him at the time of the accident.
