Body missing 14 years found in storage unit Victim's then-boyfriend charged http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/Northeast/04/06/body.found.ap/index.html SYRACUSE, New York (AP) -- The body of a woman missing since 1990 was found stuffed inside a container at a rental storage unit, and authorities charged her then-boyfriend with murder. ..................... "I don't think there's anybody in law enforcement who would think a defendant would be that stupid to keep a dead body in a storage shed rented under his own name," District Attorney William Fitzpatrick said. "Luckily, people like this keep us in business." Reome apparently was killed sometime in February 1990 at the apartment she shared with Geddes in Mattydale, a Syracuse suburb. Investigators searched the apartment at the time, but did not find any evidence, Walsh said. Walsh said the family waited a month to report Reome missing, which gave Geddes a chance to conceal his crime. Police believe Geddes may have stored the body shortly after the murder. He was paying $38 a month for the unit. "Contrary to what you see on television shows, dead bodies are difficult to get rid of," Fitzpatrick said.
