Prosecutor charges man for setting corpse on fire
LEE'S SUMMIT (AP) - Kansas City-area prosecutors have charged a man who they say dragged a suicide victim's corpse into a portable restroom and lit it on fire.
Twenty-four-year-old Sean Lloyd has been charged with abandonment of a corpse and knowingly burning an object. A Jackson County park ranger found 30-year-old Jackson Guzman's body on Nov. 20 in the parking lot of the Frank White Jr. Softball Complex near Longview Lake in Lee's Summit.
Lloyd contacted deputies after the discovery and said that the Shawnee, Kansas, man shot himself in the head after they had been drinking. Lloyd says he was scared to call deputies because he was on probation, so he looked up what to do on the Internet.
Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney for Lloyd.
