Florida man shot girlfriend, burned corpse and scattered remains through 2,700-acre 'Compound,' cops allege
Daniel Stearns, of Palm Bay, Florida, is accused of killing girlfriend Nancy Howery, burning her remains and scattering them across a 2,700-acre site.
A Florida man is accused of gunning down his girlfriend after an argument and leaving her to die in the woods – only to return days later, burn her corpse and scatter her remains around a massive undeveloped property in Palm Bay.
The Brevard County Sheriff's Office said investigators directly observed the suspect, Daniel Stearns, 32, attempting to bury some of the remains.
Nancy Howery, 44, had been reported missing from Indian Harbour Beach by her ex-husband and two children on Feb. 18, according to authorities. She had failed to pick up the kids from school three days earlier.
