Man Accused Of Tying Up Ex-Roommate And Killing Her Asheboro Police

A man reportedly killed his roommate, stuffed the body in a closet, and used the dead roommate's car to ram into his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend’s car in Asheboro, North Carolina on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

The accused, identified as David James Alexandro Rosales, 26, intentionally rammed into a car that his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend were traveling in Asheboro, North Carolina. Following the accident, officers from the Asheboro Police Department were called to East Pritchard Street and Farr Street after reports about a fight. When the officers got there, they saw the two crashed vehicles and Rosales arguing with the couple, FOX8 WGHP reported.

Rosales reportedly rammed into the victim’s Honda from the rear right corner. After hitting the car, Rosales then hit the car once again on the passenger side. Following the crash, Rosales was taken into custody and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault with the deadly weapon, assault on a female, and communicating threats and injury to personal property.

Rosales told the officers that he was driving a Hyundai owned by Katie Marie Bishop. When Rosales was taken into custody, he told the officers that he had murdered Bishop and that he had kept her body in a closet in the apartment they both lived in, WFMY News 2 reported.

Following this, officers reported to Bishop's apartment at 115 Reece Court Apartment R in Randleman. When officers got to Reece Court, no one answered the door. Following this, officers entered the apartment through a window.

After searching the apartment, officers found Bishop’s body in a closet as Rosales had said. According to officers, it initially appeared as if Bishop had been stabbed and beaten with a blunt object.

The relationship between Rosales and Bishop is unknown, other than the fact that they lived together.

Following the discovery, Rosales was charged with murder and is being held without bond. Officers are trying to ascertain the motive behind the murder.

Bishop's friend described her as a nice person who loved to sing karaoke.

"She was just a bubbly person and I know that she had so many friends that loved her and she loved them," Bishop's cousin, Patricia Welch said.

"We are just trying to figure out what we can do to uplift her dad. Just trying to make sense of why this happened. It’s hard when you have someone to pass but it’s even harder when the crime of it and how it was done," Welch added.
