Man Pulled Over With Dead Wife in Passenger Seat
A 70-year-old man told police his wife died on a road trip, so he strapped her in their car's passenger seat and continued on. The explanation came Monday as Rodney Puckett of Oklahoma was pulled over for a traffic violation along Interstate 10 in Arizona, reports the Arizona Republic. When Eloy Detective Adam Edmonds noticed a woman who appeared to be dead buckled into the car, Puckett reportedly claimed his wife, 74-year-old Linda Puckett, had died at a hotel in Texas before he moved her body to the car and kept driving.
