Now a grand jury in Palmer has indicted Jay Osmond Gardner, 55, beneath whose floorboards Buckwalter’s body, or what was left of it, was finally found. Gardner was arrested on March 25 at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International airport in Alaska as the man attempted to flee the state while dressed as his sister. . .

According to 11 KVTA, since being relieved of his drag disguise, Gardner has been stuck in a men’s jail. There he’ll have plenty of time to regret allegedly murdering the Alaska man and hiding him beneath the floorboards.
