I live on the Asbury and it was very upsetting they didn't even cover the body. Kids live on my street. It is sad. It is hard to feel safe on my own street.

V, I seriously find it difficult to believe that they did not cover up that body for the entire 12 hours. That means they did not remove the "uncovered" body until after 12noon meaning it was sitting in at least 100 degree weather for an hour or so, and 12 hours in the elements where other trace evidence can attach itself to the body and give false evidence. A body is NEVER left uncovered, NEVER.

Sorry but I have to go over this with a bit more information V. A blanket is placed under the body and wrapped up over the top the entire time, this way trace evidence on the body cannot fall off the body onto the ground and its lost. (However the ground under body is vacuumed after body is picked up to preserve anything that might have already fallen off.) Then when the body is taken in for the autopsy and further evidence gathering, everything on the blanket that was under and then over the body is either lit up for particals, vacuumed also, taped, or put in plastic in case its needed later. Prior to that a yellow tarp is used to cover the body. If you are saying, here in print, that body was uncovered for 12 hours you are making an awful bold statement that could impact this case seriously.

Thats correct! The body of Glen seriously laid on the asphault until a little after 12 pm sunday! no joke...UNCOVERED! which is why it was alittle much to see!

I am over appalled as that is totally against the Rules of Evidence. Not sure what the rules of the police are if they are required to cover a body or not, but I have NEVER seen a body left uncovered especially for that long. Once they are pronounced DOA they are covered up for arrival of coroner as even the police do not want to look at a dead body. For those of you out there and saw it I would definately be calling to complain and GET ANSWERS.
