VanVoorhis then hit the victim’s body under flooring materials and other items in a detached garage, according to the Daily News.

On Aug. 18, police responded to the home after a woman reported a bad smell coming from the garage, the Daily News noted.

Officers searched and found the decomposed remains of Pierce, according to the report.

Investigators have not released a motive in the case.
