CBS affiliate WRDW reports that according to the prosecutors, Howell hid her father’s body inside a plastic container in the family’s storage shed. About a month after his death, authorities were called to the home after guests found his body. A day after that, on March 23, 2014, Crystal Howell was arrested in Richmond County with her father’s Land Rover and a U-Haul trailer full of items.
