GREEN BAY - A 29-year-old Green Bay man was charged Friday with mutilating a corpse as part of the investigation into a body that was found near the northeast entrance to the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum.
Jeisaac Rodriguez-Garcia faces the one count. He has not been charged with homicide in the case.
Early on Sept. 28, law enforcement officials found a body on fire near the northeast entrance to the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum. The arboretum is a natural area that encircles the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus.
The victim was later identified as Jason Mendez-Ramos, 36, of Ashwaubenon.
Using cellphone data and DNA samples from a sock found on the trail near the body, Green Bay police say Rodriguez-Garcia transported the body to the trail, dumped the body there, and set it on fire with gasoline, according to the criminal complaint.
Rodriguez-Garcia is currently in the Brown County Jail.
