Florida Man Was Found Living With A Dead Body In Charlotte County
No, it’s not the plot of a creepy movie. A real life Florida man in Charlotte County was found by deputies living with a dead body that had apparently been dead for days. According to NBC-2, the body of a woman was found in a house on Turbak Drive.
The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is (perhaps not surprisingly) calling this woman’s death “suspicious.” Investigators were called to the home for a wellness check on Friday afternoon. When they got to the house, they said Justin Carver went outside to talk to them and locked the door behind him. The deputies noticed a foul odor coming from the home. They entered the home and discovered a body of a woman in her 50s decomposing on the floor of a bedroom.
Carver was immediately arrested for failing to report a death to a Medical Examiner and resisting an officer without violence. He is currently in the Charlotte County Jail with no bond. Justin has been arrested at least six times in Charlotte County, one time for willfully abusing a child without causing great bodily harm. Deputies said an autopsy is being conducted in this active investigation.
Layni Carver, aged 55, has been identified as the deceased individual. The cause of death is yet to be determined, pending the availability of toxicology results which are expected in the coming weeks. As soon as the results are obtained, they will be promptly released.
