Police had recovered the body of 52-year-old Jeffory Calvert after a neighbor reported the smell of “dead meat” coming from a garage. The Monte Vista man was determined to have drowned after being pulled from a Conejos County river over the Memorial Day weekend.

Records show Calvert’s family agreed to allow the suspects to pick up the body from the county coroner’s office so he could be cremated.

The Browns allegedly told police they were storing the body until they received payment for the cremation.
