3 accused of using Humble corpse’s head to smoke pot

2008 - 05 - 12

The Kingwood teenager’s story of decapitating a corpse and using the head to smoke marijuana was so outlandish that at first Houston Police Department senior police officer Jim Adkins did not believe it.Yet, Kevin Wade Jones Jr., 17, appeared almost indifferent as he relayed the bizarre description of his and two friends’ activities at an Humble area graveyard, Adkins said.”I just doubted it because it’s very morbid, and I couldn’t see anybody doing something like this,” Adkins said Thursday.Not until police went to the home of another Kingwood 17-year-old, Matthew Richard Gonzalez, did the officer believe the tale.”He regurgitated in his plate of food when I asked him about it,” Adkins said. “So I knew there was some truth to the story.”Now, Jones, Gonzalez and a juvenile whose name has not been released are each charged with abuse of a corpse, a misdemeanor. All three were arrested Wednesday night.Police said a fourth suspect is wanted for questioning.Houston police believe the teens disturbed the grave of an 11-year-old boy who died in 1921.
