Man drives cross-country with dead woman in passenger seat




A very strange story is unfolding as police in Warren release details about how a Clinton Township man drove a deceased woman across the country from Arizona to Michigan.  

WJBK Fox 2's Roop Raj reports a 62-year-old man drove from Michigan to Arizona to pick up a 31-year-old woman, with whom he was in a relationship.  The man picked the woman up on May 31,  from the mental health facility where she resided in Glendale, Ariz., a suburb of Phoenix. 

Police believe the woman ingested a number of oxycodone pills, after stopping at a gas station in Flagstaff, Ariz. June 1.  Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green say she returned to the van and died almost immediately, but it wasn't until later that the man touched her and realized she was dead.  

The man told police he made two additional stops between New Mexico and Oklahoma, where he attempted to ask the woman if she needed to exit the vehicle.  After she failed to respond, he determined she was deceased.

Commissioner Green say the man used his cell phone to search what he should do with the woman’s body.  What he read on the internet, convinced him that it was alright to continue driving to Michigan.

The woman’s body remained in the passenger seat for the remainder of the drive.  Police say he propped her body up and placed sunglasses on her face and a stuffed animal in her lap.

The man’s 92-year-old mother was also riding in the back of the van in her wheelchair.  During the 26-hour drive, she was not able to use a restroom.  The air-conditioning in the van stopped working soon after they began driving.
