A new documentary shows police body cam footage of the moment police arrested 21-year-old Brian Cohee for murdering a 69-year-old homeless man in 2022.

When asked by police about his parents finding the murdered man's severed head in his closet, Cohee admitted to murdering him with a knife.

His parents called the police after finding the head, and told them that their son was morbidly interested in death.

Cohee later admitted he had been looking for a suitable victim to murder for six months.

He described dismembering the victim in gory detail and laughed while talking to police.

He tried to plead insanity but was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
