Police in Monroe Township say a Williamstown man placed the body of a 40-year-old woman who died from a drug overdose into her car and drove her to a nearby town.
Police say Andrew McCloskey of Williamstown now faces a second degree illegal disposal of a body charge.
Police say their investigation started in January when a Berlin Township resident reported discovering the body of a woman in her car. The body was identified as that of a 40-year-old from Atco, New Jersey.
Over the course of their investigation, police say they learned the woman met McCloskey and went with him to his home around the time she died. A day later, after returning from work, police say McCloskey found the victim dead in his bathroom.
Police accuse McCloskey of moving the woman's body into the backseat of her car and then driving it to Berlin Township and leaving it there. Another person, police say, followed McCloskey and then drove him home.
Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours later this afternoon.
It's still muggy out there. Things start to change tomorrow afternoon, as the rain clears out, and much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
