LENEXA, Kan. (AP) – Police and court records say an investigation into a man found sleeping with his two children in a Kansas storage unit has led to the discovery of a body in a cooler.
Thirty-five-year-old Justin Rey is jailed on $1 million bond in Johnson County on two counts each of aggravated child endangerment and contributing to a child’s misconduct. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
Police in the Kansas City suburb of Lenexa say the remains were discovered when officers checked on two small children who had no food or diapers.
A Jackson County, Missouri, search warrant obtained by KCTV says a man taken into custody at the storage facility told authorities his wife killed herself after giving birth to their newborn and that her remains were inside a cooler.
