Drug Found in Body of Man Discovered in Louisa Well

February 18, 2010

Louisa County investigators said Wednesday the remains of a man found in a Louisa County well contained a drug for which he did not have a prescription. Autopsy results were confirmed Wednesday evening by Louisa investigators.

“It’s a drug that should have been foreign to his system that he had no prescription for,” said Louisa Sheriff’s Maj. Donald A. Lowe.

Ulisa Mary Chavers is accused of putting the remains in the well.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Benztropine was found in Reginal Cody Bowles, whose remains were discovered in a well on his Louisa property in March of 2009. Benztropine is a drug used to treat Parkinson’s disease.

The cause of Bowles’ death remains undetermined, and investigators are awaiting the results of additional testing.

Bowles’ girlfriend, Ulisa Mary Chavers, is accused of putting the remains in the well. She pleaded guilty in October to charges of concealing a body, credit-card fraud, identity theft and possession of a sawed-off rifle. She faces up to 25 years in prison when she is sentenced Monday in Louisa Circuit Court.
