A Henderson, Texas, man has been arrested after police said he was keeping his mother’s body wrapped in a tarp in their front yard.
Jeremy David Cassin, 42, is in the Rusk County Jail charged with corpse abuse. His bond is set at $25,000. If convicted, he could spend up to two years in jail. Police reported that Cassin’s grandmother called deputies from Houston after Cassin told her that her daughter, 63-year-old Karen Cassin, had died. Police said the son told them that he found his mother dead in bed on March 18, so he wrapped her in the tarp and placed her under some trees.
