Sheriff says ex-Marine inquired about body disposal

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a former Marine charged with murder after the body of his alleged lover was found in an abandoned California mine shaft had been looking into how to dispose of a human body.

A San Bernardino County sheriff's investigator says in court paperwork filed Tuesday that 24-year-old Christopher Lee admitted conducting Internet searches on human body disposal.

The investigator also says .22-caliber fired casings and rebar were recovered with the body of 19-year-old Erin Corwin and the head stamp from the casings matched those on casings found in Lee's vehicle and residence.

Lee was arrested Sunday in Anchorage, Alaska, a day after Corwin's body was found.

Corwin, a married woman who used to be Lee's neighbor, went missing in June.
