Baby in a bucket
PLEASANT HILL, MISSOURI- A man faces charges of disposing a baby's body in a bucket of cement.
Matthew Scroggs is charged with abandonment of a corpse and tampering with a vehicle.
Police say they discovered the bucket after a tip but went to his house to investigate reports of drugs and a stolen car. Officers saw the bucket in the garage when they searched for drugs.
According to court documents, Scroggs told authorities he put the boy's body in a bucket and filled it with concrete after the baby was stillborn in October of last year.
An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.
