Man Hides Girlfriend's Body In His Bedroom!
As the details unfold, it is as I expected. This story is only getting creepier.
The Martin County man accused of hiding his girlfriend's body in his bedroom also slept in the same bed with the corpse for several days, according to deputies.
It was Phyllis King, the woman's mother, who called authorities after realizing her daughter was dead. The mother lived in the single wide trailer with her daughters, Randall Johnson, and a third person.
According to WITN, King said her daughter had overdosed on Xanax, but was okay. After three days, she went to the bedroom, crawled over Johnson and shook her daughter who she says was cold.
Let's break it down so far:
- Girl overdoses on Xanax in trailer, Mom says she's fine. (Sure, what overdose requires medical treatment?)
- Boyfriend puts body in his bed, slept with it in there for 3 days. (Creepy)
- Mom finally checks on daughter 3 days after overdose. (Yeah, because one or two days is too soon)
- Cops called, arrive at trailer and confirm woman has been dead for several days.
This story will continue to get more disturbing and creepy.
There are a number of reasons I can think of to hide a dead body in a bedroom: to cover a murder, collect the deceased’s disability/social security checks, or to have your own “go-to” Weekend At Bernie’s partner.
I don’t know which one of those reasons covers this story, but a Williamston man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly hiding his girlfriend’s body in his bedroom for three days.
Officials claim 44-year-old Randall Edward Johnson kept the body of Carla Jean Baggett in his bedroom from April 3-6.
Hopefully, investigators will figure out why, because no foul play was suspected.
Maybe it’s a case of desperation and grief over losing her that he couldn’t let go. I sure hope that’s the case, because if not this story is about to get even more creepy.
