Man found with woman packed in dry ice
A woman's body was found packed in dry ice in a hotel room in Newport Beach, California.
Stephen David Royds, 46, was arrested at the Fairmont Newport Beach late Thursday on investigation for the posession and selling of cocaine. When his room at the hotel was searched the body of Monique Felicia Trepp, 33, was found fully dressed and packed in dry ice in a Rubbermaid bin.
Royds told a repoter that 'everything that happened was for religios reasons,' according to an AP report, and while he sepeated the statement several times her would not elaborate.
Trepp was arressted in 2005 for several felonies, including posession of controlled substances with the intent to sell, in Colorado. Her bail was paid by an unknown older man and then Trepp disappeared.
An autopsy of Trepp was inconclusive, although the coroner did realease the information that her death did not appear to be a homicide. Royds is being held without bail on the drug charges and breaking probation, but has not been charged with anything in connection to Trepps death.
