REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (April 26, 2013)--A 64-year-old suburban Detroit man was jailed after police discovered he’d been living several months in a trailer home with a woman's corpse, authorities said.
Dennis McCauley was arraigned Friday for failing to report a death, mutilation of a corpse, identity theft and other charges.
He was arrested Monday at Long's Mobile Home Court in Wayne County's Redford Township, west of Detroit.
Police Sgt. Kevin Crittenden said a court officer saw a woman's remains on a sofa after going to the trailer to serve an eviction notice.
The woman was identified as Ann Marquis, 72, who is believed to have died in November.
Preliminary autopsy results reveal she died of natural causes.
Police say they believe McCauley lived with Marquis for about three years.
