Falls woman who helped dispose of body faces sentencing on new charge

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls woman who previously avoided jail time for helping dispose of the body of a man who died of a heroin and cocaine overdose will be sentenced next month after violating her probation.

Heather A. Fuller will be sentenced in Niagara County Court on June 22. She appeared before Judge Sara Sheldon on Friday.

Fuller was one of three people who, in April 2012, took the body of David C. Brandl of Lockport from a Zimmerman Street apartment in North Tonawanda and left it in Mayor’s Park more than a mile away where it was found the following day by a utility crew.

She had previously pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of attempted tampering with physical evidence.
