LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An 89-year-old man whose body was discovered in a large suitcase on a rural Arkansas farm was a World War II veteran from New York, police say.

Robert Brooks died of natural causes at his home about a month before his body was discovered in a Prairie County field on March 5, Lt. David Gilbo of the Johnstown, New York, Police Department told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

“He was a war hero who could have been buried at the (Arlington) National Cemetery,” Gilbo said. “Instead, he ends up in a suitcase dumped in a field in Arkansas.” 

Gilbo said investigators are still trying to determine why his body was moved. His body was transported more than 1,000 miles from upstate New York to Arkansas.

Police said Brooks, who was 4 feet 11 inches tall, wasn’t dismembered.

Investigators are looking at whether his caregivers hid the death to continue receiving Social Security payments.

Virginia Colvin and Michael Stivers were charged with abuse of a corpse after they allegedly drove 19 hours in a pickup truck from Johnstown, New York to Des Arc, Arkansas, where police say they dumped the elderly man’s body in a field, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported on March 10.

The couple was living with the man in a Johnstown, New York home and acting as his caregivers, according to the paper and CBS affiliate WRGB.

In New York, abuse of a corpse is punishable by three years in prison, while in Arkansas it is punishable by 10 years.

Brooks served in the military and was a gunner in a B-17 bomber’s ball turret.

“It’s the most dangerous assignment in war,” Prairie County Sheriff Rick Hickman said. “The belly gunner is in a small bubble on the bottom of the plane. The enemy wants to shoot at him first. Life expectancy on that job is very short.”

This gets my blood going full throttle, these two disgraceful gut-maggots used and abused a WWII Vet for their own selfish gains and then intended on discarding him like he was trash.  All so they could continue to steal his Vet benefits and social security.

The news makes this sound like its not “worth” much time or mentioning, but to me, this WWII war-fighter deserved far more than what life gave him.  The system has to be changed and it starts with the CARE at the VA and the care provided by the VA and the government!

I want this shared like a wild fire, I want these two pathetic air breathers to be held accountable and to the fullest extent of the law as well as additional charges brought against them.

We can make the difference, we can ensure that U.S. Robert Brooks gets the justice he deserves as well bring this to the public and get flags flying half-mast for a war hero.  Rest in peace brother, we got you.
