Woman Stuffs Dead Body Into Barrel at Motel 6 – ‘Just Wanted the Body Out of Her Room

Jamie May Smith, aka Jamie Holland, 44, of Tennessee, was arrested last weekend for allegedly stuffing the remains of a 30-year-old dead man into a barrel and leaving it at a Motel 6, then explaining to police that she “just wanted the body out of her room.”

According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, On June 3, officers with the Chattanooga Police Department responded to an anonymous tip stating that a dead body was in a room on the second floor of Motel 6, located in the 7700 block of Lee Highway.

Upon arriving at the scene, police and fire rescue were directed to two rooms next to each other on the second floor. Police entered room 216, and officers located the body of a deceased male, which had been stuffed into a metal barrel and covered with a blanket.

The dead man was identified as Jose Heredia Lopez. In the other room, officers reportedly found about 1.5 grams of methamphetamine.

Investigators reportedly said that the hotel’s records showed one of the two rooms had been rented by Lopez and the other had been rented by Smith. Footage from the motel’s surveillance camera reportedly showed a woman, later identified as Smith, with long blonde braids leaving room 216 before police arrived.

Chattanooga ABC/Fox affiliate WTVC reported that later on Saturday, an officer returned to the motel to retrieve the surveillance footage. While speaking with a front desk employee, Smith walked into the room.

Police say they read Smith her Miranda warning and questioned her about the body found in room 216. She reportedly told investigators she knew Lopez and that they would do meth together in their rooms “all the time.”

According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by WTVC, Smith told police that about four days ago, she went into her room and saw that Lopez was lying on the bed and “appeared to be breathing.” Smith then left the room, but when she returned, she said that Lopez was “unresponsive.”

“Smith stated that she freaked out, so she went to the baseball fields down the road and grabbed a barrel. She stated she brought the barrel back up to her room and put it on its side. She then placed Mr. Lopez on the ground and put him inside of the barrel,” the affidavit reportedly states. “Smith stated that she then put a blanket over the barrel. She stated she just wanted the body out of her room, she did not want to call the police, and that she did not want to go to jail.”

Smith was taken into custody on Saturday and charged with one count of abuse of a corpse and one count of possession of methamphetamine.
