  • Perez was discovered last Sunday.
On Tuesday, Blue Springs police identified the woman, whose body was found in a Cass County creek on January 26, as Peggy Perez, 48. Perez was discovered wrapped in plastic in a creek near 315th Street and T Highway.

Lance Gross, 52, has been charged with abandoning a corpse, The Star reports. Gross' brother, Marlin Gross, 49, has been charged with the same crime.

Lance Gross told investigators that he had engaged in rough sex with Perez on January 20, put a dog collar around her neck to choke her and injected her with Valium. He told police that he passed out, and that when he awoke, Perez was dead. Authorities say Gross left Perez's body in his home for three days before enlisting his brother's help in dumping the body.

Perez's sister, Ada Perez, told Fox 4 that Lance Gross and Peggy Perez met about two months ago at the VFW Bar in Kansas City. They started dating, and Perez moved in with Gross a few weeks later.
