NEW BOSTON, TX — On Tuesday, police officers were asked to do a welfare check at a Texas residence, where they discovered a body.
Officers made contact with the father of the person they were seeking for when they arrived at the residence in New Boston, a small city on Texas’ border with Oklahoma and Arkansas. According to a press release, the cops asked the father, David McMichael, if he knew why they were there.
McMichael allegedly told officers that he was doing so because he had a body in his kitchen. According to police, he told officers that the body was that of his son, who died in May 2018.
According to authorities, officers walked into the house and discovered the skeletal remains of a male. McMichael was apprehended without incident, and the Texarkana Crime Scene unit arrived at the scene.

The body was sent to Dallas for an autopsy and identification.
David McMichael was arrested and charged with mistreatment of a corpse in the Bi-State Jail.
