An illegally parked car and shoplifting arrests in Wisconsin led to the discovery of a body – and murder charges – in Alabama. Kenosha police were called to a grocery store on January 13th, after security spotted a man and woman each stealing vodka and energy drinks. They were detained, and connected to a parked car at bus stop outside the store. The vehicle turned out to be stolen from Alabama, and tied to a missing man.
Using evidence found in the car, including blood in the trunk, a 32-year-old man was arrested in Alabama for murder, and on Tuesday the body of victim David Hayes was located. The two people arrested in Kenosha – 30-year-old Stephanie Underwood and 33-year-old Matthew Thrasher – are now awaiting extradition to Alabama on theft charges.
