COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — According to the College Station Police Department, a suspect has been identified in their homicide investigation from July 25.

Tarod London, 20, is being charged with tampering with evidence, tampering with a corpse, and disorderly conduct involving a firearm.

According to court documents, London told CSPD he was driving with the female victim when she began assaulting him. London said at one point, she pointed an AR-15 at him, resulting in the two fighting over the weapon while he was still driving.

London told CSPD that the gun went off during this fight, striking the woman in the head.

According to CSPD, London confirmed afterward he panicked and took her back to his apartment instead of seeking medical treatment.

Once at his apartment, London carried her up the stairs and once inside, attempted to perform CPR, but she had already died.

Following this, London told CSPD that he attempted to clean up some of the blood on the stairwell using dish soap, but stopped after getting too nervous.

London reportedly left the apartment after this, going to a nearby family member's house and leaving the corpse inside his apartment.

CSPD states that London's mother brought him in to speak with investigators after she was contacted by them during their investigation.

London has been arrested and taken to the Brazos County Detention Center in lue of $205,000 in bond. The investigation remains ongoing.
