The man had been seen on surveillance footage walking into the room where the body was located twice.

He was even seen taking a pair of underwear from the body that he then stashed in his backpack, the Ledger-Inquirer reports.

Police eventually found the man at around noon in a vacant Columbus home on the 500 block of 23rd Street.

Judge Ron Mullins had sentenced the man to 20 years in prison with 15 to serve for first-degree burglary and necrophilia.
