One of the suspects accused of dumping the body of a Middletown woman found dead of an apparent overdose in Kettering on Sunday is set to appear in court Wednesday morning.

Charles E. Hall, 64, who was initially booked on suspicion of tampering with evidence was released under 48 hour rule Tuesday, but was subsequently charged with receiving stolen property and is being held on $75,000 bond, according to court records.

It is unclear if the misdemeanor is related to his initial booking. Hall is scheduled to appear at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in Kettering Municipal Court.

Hall, and David Detrick are accused of removing the body of Tiffany Argo, 28, from their residence and dumping it on a neighboring street.

Here is what we know, and what we’re trying to find out about these three people and overdoses in Kettering.

1) Who was the victim?

Tiffany Argo, 28, was a resident of Middletown and attended Middletown High School—though she did not graduate from that school. We’ve reached out to friends and family to help us learn more about the victim.

2) What is Argo’s relation with the two men accused?

Kettering Police Officer John Jung said it appeared Hall allowed Detrick and Argo to stay at his home on Willamet Road. Kettering police said they are still trying to determine what the relationship was between the three, beyond residency.

3) Kettering overdoses for 2017

Jung said Kettering EMT’s have been dispatched 105 times so far this year for overdoses. Those 105 calls aren’t always opiate-related Jung said.

Jung also said Narcan has been administered 83 times this year as well, though Jung said the number is not associated with the 105 calls for overdoses. Death tolls were not immediately available by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office due to confirmation by toxicology reports.

4) Who are the suspects?

Hall, 64, and Detrick, 39, were in Montgomery County Jail today on suspicion of abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

Detrick, 39, was still being held in the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. There was no information available on a court date for him.

Hall has been arrested at least 12 times in the past 10 years, most recently in March on drug-related charges, according to court records. He has been arrested several times for felony drug charges including possession of drugs and possession of drug abuse material.

Detrick’s criminal history includes several felony arrests related to forgery, theft and fraud. Before Sunday, Detrick was most recently arrested in 2014 in Warren County for criminal trespassing and theft.
