Malcolm was a family friend visiting from Jamaica.

Cops have said that the bodies were in the home for at least three days before they were discovered on Friday by Barnett's other son.

Neighbors recalled dismissing a foul-smelling odor coming from the home, not thinking much of it until police showed up.

“Who in they right mind would do that? Tying a girl up and then slicing them up It’s crazy,” neighbor Isaiah Adams told New York Daily News.
