Over the past week, deputies have continued following up on numerous leads in regards to the human remains located on Bess Hill Road. On July 6, 2019, deputies went to the area of 5700 Foxfire Lane in an attempt to locate, person of interest, Sandy Gallaspie.
During the search of a residence, Gallaspie was located. He was taken into custody without incident. Gallaspie was arrested and transported to the Cole County Jail where charges of abandonment of a corpse were filed against him on July 7, 2019.
We continue to work with the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Moniteau County Sheriff’s Office, and we appreciate their continual support throughout this investigation.
This case is still active. We will not release additional information at this time in order to preserve the integrity of this investigation.
