Michigan authorities have released chilling surveillance footage of a suspected killer dragging a victim’s body through an empty parking lot, MLive.com reported.

Police said the footage captures the moments after 19-year-old Marcus Bivens fatally stabbed 34-year-old Jeanne Huntoon on April 30 at a Grand Rapids Community College parking lot.

Although the security cameras didn’t record the murder, it shows the suspected killer pacing back and forth before dragging Huntoon’s lifeless body away from the parking lot ramp.

Officers discovered Huntoon’s remains hidden in bushes near the campus in what police are calling a random act of violence. Investigators said Bivens had a brief conversation with his victim before committing the murder.

Cops said a tip led to Bivens arrest on May 1, who later confessed to Huntoon’s slaying.

“During the interview, evidence was obtained, and statements were made in reference the homicide, that only the suspect would know,” Grand Rapids police said in a statement.

Prosecutors charged Bivens with murder, who is currently being held without bond.

The suspected killer has an extensive criminal history dating back to 2010 when police arrested Bivens at the age of 13 for assaulting his own father, according to reports.

That same year, police charged him with criminal sexual conduct, home invasion, auto theft, receiving stolen property, assaulting a police officer and escaping a juvenile facility.

According to local reports, as a 13-year-old, Bivens also began several interventions, including sex-offender treatment.

During one of the programs, Bivens reportedly attacked one of the facility members.

The mother of the victim, Debbie Huntoon, created a GoFundMe page for a “celebration of life” for her daughter, raising over $10,000.

“She had a smile on her face always and the sunshine in her pockets, handing it out to those who needed it,” Debbie wrote on the page. “She is the last person who deserved this.”
