JOPLIN, Missouri (AP) — A 24-year-old southwest Missouri woman has been arrested on an accusation that she posed with the body of a dead man and posted them on her Facebook page.

The Joplin Globe (http://bit.ly/1tW3Mrr ) reports the Carl Junction woman is accused of posing with the body of 30-year-old Dennis Meyer, a Joplin man who was found dead last week in a rural Newton County driveway.

Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland says he plans to submit a charge of abandonment of a corpse to the county prosecutor’s office. He says authorities are still searching for a male suspect who also is pictured in thephotos.

Copeland has said Meyer possibly died of a drug overdose. An autopsy has been performed, but authorities are waiting for a toxicology report.
