Couple Accused of Stuffing Overdosed Woman's Body In Duffel Bag

SEATAC, Wash. (KCPQ) -- A King County couple is on the run after being charged with unlawful disposal of remains when they allegedly stuffed the body of a woman in a duffel bag and left it on an apartment patio for several days.

Court documents allege Ashley Williams and Will Richardson were with 23-year-old Jenna Ferguson, a mother of two who was visiting from Utah, when she overdosed on drugs. Instead of calling for help, detectives say they tied her body up and stuffed it in a luggage bag. The couple then brought the bag to a friend's apartment patio, where it sat outside for several days.
