Dismembered Body Found in Brooklyn Park ID’ed Brandy Odom

Nicole Odom struggled to wrap her head around the horror: Her middle child, so joyous and sweet, slain and butchered by a madman who dumped the body parts in a Brooklyn park.

“I wouldn’t wish this tragedy on my worst enemy," Odom told the Daily News on the morning after learning of her daughter Brandy’s gruesome death.

A manhunt continued Wednesday for the savage killer of Brandy Odom, 26, whose remains were identified only after her sister spied the tell-tale tattoo — “chocolate" — inked on the victim’s left breast.

“Life does not promise a tomorrow," said the mom, growing teary-eyed. “You’ve got to love for today…Everybody is not in their right state of mind that’s walking around New York City."

Cops believe the killing took place outside Canarsie Park, and Brandy’s dismembered remains were left there only a short time before the body parts were discovered strewn across its 132 acres.

“I don’t know of her having any enemies," said Nicole Odom, standing forlornly at her Sheepshead Bay door. “I don’t know who could have possibly wanted to do this. Brandy was a joyful child.

“She liked to cook, she liked to draw, she liked to do hair. She was a bright young lady, so I don’t know why anyone would want to do this to her."

The victim’s naked torso and head were discovered Monday evening by a dog walker in the sprawling park, with her severed arms, legs and other body parts wrapped in plastic bags and left elsewhere.

Detectives trying to retrace her activities in the hours before she was carved up reviewed surveillance video from around the park in hopes of spotting a suspect.

“I want them caught," said Nicole Odom, her voice calm despite the crushing news. “I need them caught — for my satisfaction, and so my daughter can rest in peace."

The city Medical Examiner did not determine a cause of death Wednesday, although police sources indicate Odom was possibly strangled before the fugitive killer hacked up the corpse.

Police found a knife in a trash can 50 yards from where the torso was found, but it was unclear whether it was related to the crime.
