A Detroit-area man was so determined to get to Michigan from Arizona that he refused to stop and contact authorities after one of his passengers died, police said Wednesday.

The man, a 62-year-old Clinton Township resident, has not been charged and authorities were awaiting toxicology results from an autopsy performed on the body of the 31-year-old woman who died.

Olive: I’d like to dedicate this to my grandpa, who showed me these moves.

Pageant MC: Aww, that is so sweet.

[Audience applauds]

Pageant MC: Is he here? Where’s your grandpa right now?

Olive: In the trunk of our car.

In Texas, moving a corpse is a crime. Not a felony, based on the circumstances, but still against the law.

My grandfather and a friend drove 200 miles one night after work with a fellow in the back seat they thought was asleep.
When they got to now deceased home they tried to wake him.
(They don’t know exactly when he died during the trip as not a sound from him to indicate duress.)

31 seems very young to die without an existing illness or sudden trauma.

Did they stop the bus in “Midnight Cowboy” when Ratso (Dustin Hoffman) died? No, they continued to the warmer weather of Florida.

Of course, that was just a movie, but the situation is similar... eventually the authorities were notified, and the passenger didn’t care.

“If he didn’t kill her, what law did he break?”

My sister in the OSI worked a case where the visiting family of an airman had the family patriarch die while there. (Texas, as I recall.) They went to where the body was and were not stopped or challenged. They had no idea they were doing anything wrong. They loaded the man into the back of a pickup and took him home to lay him out in the family parlor. But along the way they got into a wreck. Nobody was seriously hurt, but there was an extra body...which had been embalmed. Apparently it is illegal to transport a body. But I’ll wager this case was unique. (Timeframe late ‘60’s.)

Or drugs. Heroin would be my guess.

It sounds like a union friendly law.

So I guess you need some sort of funeral type license in TX to transport bodies.

I think posterchild has it right. It’s a protect the union law. I know to transport a body costs lots, thousands. But if you just fold it over and UPS it...$94.88. (Don’t ask.)

Just in case, they filled out three Chicago absentee ballot requests.

Couldn’t have pulled it off before the Dems morto-voter law.

Here are the circumstances: These men were working in a ship yard during WWII building LST’s. They stayed in a “Man-Camp” during the week and drove home on Friday nights.
Poor guy didn’t make it. Just one of those stories that make up the family lore.
