Arizona police arrest 70-year-old traveling with wife's dead body

Rodney Puckett, 70, was arrested on Monday after police found his wife's corpse in the passenger seat of his auto during a traffic stop in Eloy, Arizona.

Authorities say the officer stopped Rodney Puckett in the area of Toltec Road along Interstate 10 on Monday. He said he loaded her body in the vehicle and continued toward their destination. No word of what vehicle he was driving when he was pulled over in Eloy.

Yet KNXV reports that the couple, married in 2011, were in the midst of divorcing. Linda was issued a protective order from her husband on February 6 and it was continued today, records show.

According to Channel 6 in Tulsa, the Pucketts are from Sand Springs, Okla. Rodney was the subject of a Silver Alert in late April and was found about a week later in Kansas.

Her body was turned over to the Pinal County Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death. Officials were working to determine whether her death was a homicide, the statement said.

Last year, a pizza driver in New Hampshire alerted police after noticing a strong smell emanating from the Salem home of a recluse who appeared to be surviving by ordering pizzas delivered through his window, according to Newsweek.

A husband arrested in Arizona on suspicion of concealing his wife's dead body was seen earlier on security video moving a woman's naked body to his vehicle outside a Texas hotel, police said Tuesday.

They say Puckett is seen the next day using a luggage cart to move Linda Puckett's body. Police say additional charges could be filed at a later date.
