Two People Charged After Posing For Photo With Dead Man

By Lynne Roberts. CREATED Aug 28, 2014

A woman from Carl Junction and a man from Joplin have each been charged with abandoning a corpse after authorities in Newton County said the two posed for a picture with a dead man.

Chelsie Berry, 24, and Jared Prier, 28, were arrested after the photos of them with Dennis Meyer's body surfaced on Facebook, according to Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland.

Meyer, 30, was found dead last week in the driveway of a home near Diamond.  Authorities believe he died of a drug overdose, but they're still waiting for a toxicology report.
