Why "abuse of a corpse"? Because he brought her dead to Ohio and damped her?
This sounds fishy and there has to be more than that!

Story is over. Taxpayers can bury her because her "family" won't and trucker can pay a fine and do some time all at taxpayer expense.
More will die this way every day ... Had idiot trucker called 911 or just left her in a urban area
no one would have wasted taxpayer dollars on looking for him.
This was big time crime for Pickaway County so they blew lots of time and money on a case that because it crossed state lines should have went to FBI .... Seems like Kim Vaughn's whole life was a burden to the taxpayers.
Sheriff Radcliff's office investigates all suspicious deaths the same...completely. He's done it that way for 45 years.

I work at a truck stop in Bucyrus, OH. I sure hope that I havent waited on this guy. OOOHHHH, you never know what is going on in a customers truck, I sometimes wonder when I am waiting on them. I work 11pm to 7am and it is very creepy.

On the serious side I would bet there's more to the story. He got "the goods" and probably didn't want to pay or something lame like that. Or, if he's telling the truth then he did it trying to hide it from his wife...

I agree, there something very fishy about this story. Any noraml human bieng would have stopped right away and called 911. The fact that he didn't suggests he had something to hide. Is it possible that he killed her? Perhaps.

Rdcliff should have passed on this to the State Patrol as body was found on State Property. And saved his county lots of money.
His ego got in the way so he sid things as he always has. Wore out his deputies and wasted $$$$
FBI / State Patrol could have done same job and reduced cost to Pickaway County who will now have to pay for very expensive autopsy and tests and liley burial of body no one will claim.

I can't get this much sympathy from Law Enforcement when pulled over for doing 3 mph over the speed limit on 270.

Next time I am just going to tell the cop "I dumped a half naked body back at mile marker 16.....now you can understand why I may have lost focus, and exceeded the speed limit, can't you?"

I can hear him now "oh poor guy....you must be feeling really bad right now.....here is a warning....hey, set your cruise control and that way you will be less likely to speed....be careful."

It would APPEAR this lady of the night is a prostitute. Now as to her death, we will have to await an autopsy. What is unreasonable is WHY he would drive all that way with a dead body, my guess is he was on drugs or drunk himself.

Come on. Who here really has never left a body at a rest stop. I usually leave them by soda machine.

You're disgusting! What if a child were to come across that while going for a pop? Do the decent thing and put them in a stall.

Don't leave dead bodies in the hot sun.
Prop'em up in a nice Shadey COTA bus stop since no one uses them it will be months before anyone finds the rotting stiff ...

"IF" he's being truthful, why was she found with only her skirt on? When he picked her up was she topless? Hmmm....

It sounds like she was giving him a ride and overdosed on God knows what. I'm betting he gave her the dope and dumped the body because he knows he can be charged with manslaughter.

Did anyone else think the statements made by detective Lt. Parish sounded more like he was the truckers lawyer , instead of a law enforcement officer?
