According to ABC News, When Cierra Sutton was found in Jefferson Parrish, police said she seemed unfazed by the investigation into her boyfriend’s death.

“Uncaring. No remorse. That’s the best way I can describe [her],” Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris said at a press conference this afternoon.

Investigators say Sutton, who is charged with murder in connection with Steven Coleman’s death, fatally shot and then dismembered her boyfriend with a machete before leaving his remains in dumpsters of her apartment complex.

“We don’t know that she necessarily had an accomplice,” Lt. Dorris said. “We did have some information that there may have been some other people in the area, or in the apartment during this time frame.”

Coleman was last seen on the evening of August 16, in the 1700 block of James Bowie Drive.

Sutton herself called to make the missing person’s report, but investigators also heard from family and colleagues of Coleman, who also said they had not seen him since that date.

According to investigators, Sutton admitted to others that she had shot Coleman in the head as he slept after an argument. Because his body was too heavy for her to carry, Sutton allegedly hacked it into smaller pieces with a machete and then disposed of the smaller pieces in various local dumpsters.

On Sunday, Coleman’s close friend Dominique Clark spoke to Eyewitness News about Sutton’s arrest.

“Devil. That’s the mind of a bad spirit,” Clark said. “That’s not a normal mind. That’s not a mind of God. That’s not one of God’s children.”

Before the torso was found, Clark said Sutton stayed with Coleman’s family as they looked for their missing loved one.

“She played the role of an innocent person,” Clark said. “She played the role of an innocent person, and she played it to the fullest.”

Coleman’s credit cards were used at a Harris County Walmart after he went missing, according to investigators, and the woman caught on surveillance camera buying duct tape and a mattress pad with Coleman’s card closely matched Sutton’s description.
