A 39-year-old woman in Ohio was taken into custody by the police on felony charges after the discovery of a decomposed body in her residence earlier this week. Josephine Torres has been charged with abuse of a corpse in relation to the incident that occurred at her apartment in Toledo. According to records from the Lucas County jail, she was arrested at her home near the southside neighborhood of the city on Wednesday and subsequently released on bail on Thursday morning.

The Toledo Police Department report states that a coworker informed the officers that his employee, identified as Kevin Murphy, had been residing at Torres’ home and was reported missing. Concerned, the coworker had gone to Torres’ residence to search for him.

Upon arrival, the police were met by the landlord of the apartment, who opened the door for them. As soon as the door was opened, the officers were hit with an overpowering stench. Inside the dwelling, they found Torres in one of the bedrooms, sitting on the bed. Despite their presence, she remained seated and only greeted them with a casual “hello.” The officers proceeded to discover a severely decomposed body in another bedroom.

The victim has not yet been identified by the police, nor have they disclosed any information regarding the cause of death. The Lucas County coroner’s office will work towards identifying the deceased and determining the circumstances surrounding their demise. The investigation into this case is still ongoing.
