WARREN, MI (WDIV/NBC) - A man driving to Michigan from Arizona failed to report a woman with him had died and completed the trip with her corpse in the passenger seat of his van.

Ray Tomlinson's 93-year-old mother also was in the van. The trio left the Phoenix area Sunday after the woman, who was Tomlinson's girlfriend, checked out of a mental health facility.

"I went like this, you know, nudged her, at this point in time she was stiff," Tomlinson said. "There wasn't jerking or moans or groans, or cries for help, she just fell asleep."
