It's been said in the thread that folks up to criminal activities with a record (on probation maybe) not wanting to get caught with an OD'd person. Maybe they, being high, weren't thinking straight. Here is a scenario...partying at house. Folks all over, in different rooms. Some passed out or out of their minds high. Several hours later, home owner finds a dead partier. There are folks all over, some with records and/or on probation. There may be drugs, lots of cash and weapons around, who knows. But they can't have LE show up there. They then dump the body down the street at a known vacant home. Trying to distance themselves from the death.
