Anthony “Skipper” Noland, 49, of Asbury Park, and Tara Roberts, 40, of Neptune, are each charged with purposely failing to dispose of human remains as required by law, according to information from Toms River Police Chief Mitch Little and Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato.

Investigators say the body of John J. Dunn, 43, bore no obvious signs of trauma. They believe that Dunn’s death occurred in a separate location, and that Noland and Dunn took the remains to Toms River and left it in the parking area of the building on Route 9 at Sunset Avenue.

Investigators were able to link the incident to a 2000 Ford Taurus. A driver passing reported the grisly find to police around 6:40 PM on March 31, police said.

Autopsy and toxicology reports have yet to be completed and delivered. Noland and Roberts were incarcerated in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River, with bail set at $25,000 each while they await court appearances.
