Man's Dismembered Body Found in Creek After Deadly Drug Dispute

View Comments ()



    A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed without bond on charges he robbed and killed a man in a drug-related dispute, then cut up the victim's body with a chain saw.

    Online court records don't list an attorney for 32-year-old Michael Shugars, of Brookville, who was arraigned Tuesday and will have a preliminary hearing Oct. 1 on charges including criminal homicide and abuse of a corpse.
    Police found the remains Sunday about 60 miles northeast of Pittsburgh in Mahoning Creek in the tiny village of Hamilton, in Perry Township.

    The remains were identified through fingerprints as those of 33-year-old Chet Allen Haddow, of Punxsutawney.
    Police say they also found Haddow's car, set on fire, in a different location. Troopers believe the men were friends before the drug dispute turned deadly.
