A Florida man buried his friend's body in the backyard of his house and inadvertently told the police about it when they came to visit him on an unrelated issue.
Homeowner Greg Palermo, 50, from Orange County, says he & # 39; has made a bad decision & # 39; when he buried the man six meters below him where his patio was.
The police at the Sheriff & # 39; s Office in Orange County finally found the body on Sunday in the courtyard of the house in the Doctor Phillips district of Orlando after Palermo told them the exact location.
Greg Palermo & # 39; s friend mentioned & # 39; he would like to be buried in the backyard & # 39; and he revealed to the police (and later a television news program) exactly where he left his friend
The reporter for WESH appeared disbelieving because Palermo, 50, explained that he buried him in the backyard of his house after the death of a suspected drug overdose
Palermo told how the police later visited the house to look for drugs and other related artifacts
When the police came by, he asked them how they knew they had to look for a body in the backyard
While talking to a local television station, Palermo explained that his friend, who lived in the house from time to time, had died days earlier from an overdose of drugs.
Palermo panicked that he could blame the death of his friends and decided to bury him in the backyard himself.
& # 39; My friend jokingly said that while fishing that morning he said he wouldn't mind being buried in my backyard because it's so beautiful, & # 39; Palermo said to WESH. & # 39; I made a bad decision because I was scared. & # 39;
Palermo claimed that his concerns about alerting the police to the death of the friend at home stemmed from the fact that he had previously been arrested for drug charges.
Of course, the police had no idea at all that a corpse was buried until he told them
Excavation teams were brought in to dig up the rubble and find the body that Palermo was talking about
The house is close to the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida
But in the end he accidentally told them, after he had asked the police how they knew they should look for a corpse in his backyard.
In reality, the police had no idea there was a corpse a meter away, but by that time Palermo had given away the game with his innocent questions.
The police had actually come to the house in an unrelated case and went looking for possible drug paraphernalia.
& # 39; How did law enforcement know about it? I told them they came here because they thought I was a manufacturer of meth and I don't, & Palermo said.
No charges have been lodged against Palermo in the light of the new information.
The Orange County Sheriff & # 39; s Office also did not comment on the matter.
