Guilty plea in Crawford Co corpse abandonment case

Michael Garrison

A Crawford County man pleads guilty to abandoning the corpse of an overdose victim. 

Michael Garrison, 42, of Cuba pleaded guilty to the charge last Thursday.  He’ll be sentenced August 8th.

Garrison was arrested in the fall of 2017, ten months after the body of Kayla Wilson, 25, of Cuba was found, laying in a ditch just east of Rolla.

Although police were originally unsure of what caused Wilson’s death, they  later learned it was an accidental overdose.
