Florida Man Arrested-Had Mother’s Decomposing Corpse in His House
Florida Man Justin Carver, 36, of Punta Gorda, was arrested on charges of failing to report the death of his mother, Layni Carver, 5, after her decomposing corpse was found in his residence.
Charlotte County Deputies arrived at the Carver residence on Turbak Drive just before 5 p.m. to conduct a well-being check. Officers knocked on the door but failed to receive a response before noticing a foul odor coming from within.
According to the sheriff’s report, Justin Carver emerged from the house to greet the officers but evaded questions about the victim.
Deputies eventually found the body decomposing on the floor inside one of the house’s bedrooms.
According to the arrest affidavit, “Upon entering the residence, Deputy First Class (DFC) Sganga entered the first bedroom, located on the left after entering, and located a deceased subject in the corner of the room, between the bed and wall.”
“DFC Sganga noted that the deceased subject was starting to bloat, with marbled skin and apparent skin slippage.”
As the deceased was beyond life-saving measures, DFC Sganga immediately exited the residence and detained Justin.”
According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, Carver was also charged with resisting arrest without violence.
“The cause of death is yet to be determined, pending the availability of toxicology results which are expected in the coming weeks,” the Sheriff’s Office stated. “As soon as the results are obtained, they will be promptly released.”
