27-year-old man ODs, girlfriend dumps body
When her boyfriend died of an overdose, instead of dialing 911, Destiny Helms drove the body to a friends house. Then, instead of going to the hospital, she left Corey Clark on the side of the road.
According to WTVD, around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, deputies with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office were called to Kelly Drive between the 421 Bypass and Pumping Station Road after reports of a body found.
According to deputies, 20-year-old Destiny Helms was with her friend, 27-year-old Corey Clark, when he allegedly overdosed and died.
Deputies said Helms went to a friend’s house, saying Clark had overdosed and was in her car.
Reports show the friend advised Helms to bring Clark to the hospital; however, Helms never contacted any medical facility or law enforcement agency.
