BROCKVILLE – One of a trio of suspects, accused of dumping a man’s body in a creek near Bishop’s Mills, has pleaded guilty to causing indignity to a human body.
David Lojk, 26, entered the plea in a Brockville court Monday (Feb. 29, 2016). He also pled guilty to possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, obstruction of a police investigation and two counts of breaching court conditions.
Lojk admitted to dumping the body of Deepak Beaudoin-Reichmann, 27, in a creek near Kemptville after Beaudoin-Reichmann died of a suspected drug overdose.
Court saw surveillance video Monday of Lojk and two other men leaving an Ottawa apartment and loading a duffel bag into a pickup truck.
The dumped body of Beaudoin-Reichmann from the Niagara Region was found in a creek near County Roads 18 and 20 on Oct. 14, 2015, east of Bishop’s Mills.
He had been reported missing by family members weeks before.
At the time, police made an appeal to identify two other suspects by releasing photos and also asking locals who may have seen a silver pickup truck near the scene to come forward.
The identities of the other two suspects are protected under a publication ban as their cases are still working their way through the court process.
Lojk will be back in court March 4 to set a date for sentencing submissions, according to the Ottawa Sun.
