WYOMING COUNTY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A Mullens couple is charged after concealing a deceased human body.
On Thursday, September 15, 2022, two deputies were dispatched to a dead-on-arrival call off Green Street in Mullens, later identified as Jason Lawrence Goad of Mullens. Deputies were informed that Jason Goad would hang out with a friend, Penny Sue Biggs. Deputies tried to reach Penny Biggs but were unsuccessful and returned the next day to her home. Her husband, Wallace Biggs, told deputies that he hadn’t seen his wife. When deputies asked Mr. Biggs where she went, he told them he didn’t know, and sometimes she takes off. Later in the day, a deputy advised that he had Penny Biggs in custody for warrants irrelevant to this case. She was found hiding inside a home in Otsego.
During questioning, Mrs. Biggs advised that she picked up Mr. Goad. Mr. Goad, Mr. Biggs, and Mrs. Biggs then went to pick up heroin. Mrs. Bigg noticed that Mr. Goad was mumbling, and she asked him if he was ok; he then was unresponsive. Mrs. Bigg said she was scared, so she pulled him out by his pants onto the ground, and she and her husband, Mr. Biggs, left the scene.
Mr. Biggs is charged with concealing a dead human body and interfering with law enforcement. Mrs. Biggs is charged with fugitive from justice, drug delivery resulting in death, truancy, and concealing a dead human body.
