Officials have ruled that the death of a 60-year-old Lake Arthur woman, whose body was found buried in a padlocked box in Cleveland, Texas, last month, likely was a homicide.

A report from a forensic pathologist from the Southeast Texas Forensic Center indicated that Dorothy Mae Hey’s body was compressed and folded up within a black storage box and buried in the ground, according to a news release from the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Her head was covered with a plastic bag and duct tape, her hands and feet were bound by duct tape and her body was covered with cat litter.

Hey’s daughter, Roseann Duhon Klumpp, 36, of Lake Arthur, was arrested last month on charges of second-degree murder.

Klumpp lived with her mother at the time.

Authorities found Hey’s body Oct. 18 buried in a 4-foot deep grave at the home of one of her daughter’s in East Texas.

Hey had been reported missing Oct. 15 to the Lake Arthur Police Department.

Detectives with the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office began working on the case later that week when another of Hey’s daughters contacted authorities after she had received a text message from Hey’s phone Oct. 16, which she described as highly unusual.

Detectives subpoenaed cell phone records and entered Hey into the National Criminal Information Center computer as a missing person.

Detectives later determined that Hey was dead and her body had been transported out of state.

According to authorities, Klumpp allegedly took Hey’s body and placed it in a self-storage facility in Iowa.

She then called her sister Betty Fulton who assisted in moving the body to her home in Cleveland, Texas.

Klumpp’s bond is set at $600,000. She is being held in the Jefferson Davis Parish Jail.

Fulton, her husband, Robert Fulton, and Gordon Hall, who was at the Fulton residence, all face charges out of Texas for tampering with evidence.

oh my gosh how can anyone kill their mother. The Dorothy Heys I met was a sweet little woman who cared about family. Even if she were a terrible person why would you kill your mother. Sorry I just don't get it.

this is my grandmother too and just because one of our aunts did this does not mean you need to be disgusted with your whole family . reality check sweetheart it was your aunt who killed her and your mama knew about it and let her bury the body behind her house . none of the rest of the family had anything to do with it. you hate your family for all the wrong reasons
