An alleged sugar daddy’s severed thumb was used to steal from the man after his homicide, prosecutors say.

Pictures show Tiffany Taylor Gray, 22, and 53-year-old Fasil Teklemariam, entering his apartment on Peabody Street NW on April 1, according to an affidavit filed in D.C. Superior Court. One witness told police Teklemariam was Gray’s “sugar daddy.”

Teklemariam’s body was discovered in the apartment April 5, police said. According to the affidavit, he suffered head trauma, he had been stabbed, and his right thumb had been cut off.

A witness told police the thumb was used to gain access to a finance app on his cellphone and buy liquor and drugs.

Surveillance cameras mounted outside two entrances to the building, in the foyer and in the hallway leading to the victim’s apartment captured Gray, 19-year-old Audrey Miller and two men — one who has been identified but not charged — coming and going from the building over several days, according to the affidavit.
