Missouri Man Charged in Connection to Abandonment of a Corpse
A Missouri man has been charged in connection to moving a dismembered body.
According to WTOP, 45-year old Darrell Willis, was charged Thursday (Sept 7), with abandonment of a corpse and evidence tampering.
Court documents indicate that Willis told detectives that his friend, Charles Steven Swon, confessed in May 2016 to killing 54-year-old Joanna Anderson in a domestic dispute in Rocky Mount, MO. Anderson’s dismembered body was reportedly stuffed into a 55-gallon drum.
Swon allegedly paid Willis $2,000 to help move the drum containing Anderson’s body to the nearby woods. The report says that Swon died in July.
Court documents say Willis led detectives to the drum and identified the contents as Anderson.
According to Ozarks First, Willis has been charged with abandonment of a corpse and 3 counts of felony tampering with evidence. His bond was set at $250,000.
Authorities are continuing the investigation.
