Authorities were called to the home of Mandy Granger, 22, on Tuesday on a call for a medical emergency. But police say what they found at the home was inconsistent with what the boyfriend Daniel Hobby, 39, had reportedly said occurred.
Upon questioning, police say that Hobby admitted to assaulting Mandy Granger, and he admitted to moving her body to make it look more like a medical emergency.
“He was trying to disguise any wrongdoing,” the detective said. “Through investigation, police were able to determine that the crime scene had been tampered with.”
Police say that when they arrived, Mandy Granger was already dead and she was transported to the hospital where doctors could pronounce her.
They say that Hobby has now admitted to assaulting her, they do not believe there was a weapon involved, they believe the assault was with his fists. Police also say that in the original call, Hobby did not mention that his girlfriend had been assaulted.
Police are awaiting an autopsy to determine the time and manner of the death. But they believe
“Quite a bit of time had lapsed in between the assault and when he did call for medical assistance.”
Hobby has been charged with criminally negligent homicide. Police say that Hobby did not have a criminal record.
So he is accused of assaulting her, waiting until she died, then trying to hide what occurred and reporting it as a medical emergency.
I would be interested in just how he moved her body to make it look like a medical emergency. Police are awaiting toxicology results.
