    IA - Gregory May, 55, slain, dismembered, Bellevue, Jan 2001

    Prosecutors said they believe May was killed in January 2001 in his Bellevue apartment, but four years of searching failed to find his body. However, just last month, authorities learned of a possible link between the May case and a head found in a bucket at a truck stop in 2001 near Kearney, Mo.

    A key witness is expected to be Julie Miller, aka Julie Johnson, who told federal authorities as part of a plea agreement on federal theft charges that DeBruin killed May in the apartment and stuffed the body in garbage bags. She was DeBruin’s girlfriend at the time.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Head in concrete could be missing antiques dealer’s

    A Missouri truck stop owner who found a human head in a bucket of concrete four years ago will testify in the trial of Douglas DeBruin, charged with murder in the 2001 disappearance of Iowa antiques dealer Gregory May.

    The head was found at the truck stop Aug. 27, 2001, seven months after May’s disappearance.

    "I had almost resigned myself to never finding his remains," Donald May, Gregory May’s son, said from California during a telephone interview Thursday. "The timing is fortuitous. ... It was about to be the first trial without a body in Iowa."

    Gregory May, 55, of Bellevue, Iowa, was an antiques dealer who specialized in Civil War memorabilia. He had shared his home with DeBruin, 54, and DeBruin’s girlfriend, Julie Ann Miller, and disappeared in January 2001.

    DeBruin faces trial next week on a first-degree murder charge.

    Police and prosecutors declined to comment on the discovery of the head.

    A woman serving time for transporting stolen goods across state lines will likely face no further charges in connection with the slaying of an antiques dealer.

    Miller testified that she helped DeBruin cut up May's body with a chain saw and dispose of the body parts in the Mississippi River. His skull was placed in a bucket of concrete at a truck stop in Missouri.

    From April 2009:

    http://www.advancabag.com/news%20spotlight%20again.html

    DeBruin was convicted of first-degree murder in April 2005 after prosecutors convinced a jury that he killed May one night in the home's kitchen and that he and Miller cut up May's body and scattered the parts. His skull was found at a Kearney, Neb., truck stop a few months later, but was not identified until 2005 when a forensic artist reconstructed the skull.

    DeBruin is serving his life sentence at the Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison. Miller, who was sentenced for perjury and theft, is serving in a federal prison in Waseca, Minn. She will be eligible for release in February 2011.
