Guy Gets Drive Thru with Wife's Body Riding Shotgun

This is pretty morbid. 

A 70-year-old guy got drive thru in Arizona on Monday, with his wife's body in the passenger seat. 

He says she passed away in Texas, during a road trip from Oklahoma to California, and he just kept driving. 

The cops suspect foul play. 

ABC15 reports:

A 70-year-old Oklahoma man is behind bars after an Eloy police officer found a dead body in his car during a traffic stop.
Authorities say an officer stopped Rodney Puckett in the area of Toltec Road along Interstate 10 on Monday. While the officer was talking to Puckett, he noticed the body of a dead woman in the passenger seat.
Officials say they were tipped off to the situation after a fast food employee called police, saying a man and woman were naked in the car.
"I so happened to look on the passenger side and that's when I seen he had the lady in there, she was like completely naked," said employee Maria Davis. "The way she was face down, like laying down, and then I seen the color of her feet were like purple."
Davis told ABC15 she tried to stall the man so she could seek help. "He was like normal, like really normal about it," Davis said. "He was calm, he ordered his food."
Police pulled over Rodney's vehicle a short distance from the restaurant. Rodney was reportedly only wearing underwear when police pulled him over.
Police say the woman was identified as Rodney’s wife, 74-year-old Linda Puckett. Rodney told investigators Linda died at a hotel in El Paso, Texas, during the couple’s road trip. He said he moved her body into the car and continued towards their destination in California.
The couple, who married in 2011, were divorcing. Linda was issued a protective order from her husband on Feb. 6 and it was continued Monday, records show. Linda filed for divorce on Feb. 8. Rodney also had an order of protection against Puckett, according to a probable cause statement by Eloy police.
In another connection, Rodney was reported missing in April, but the Silver Alert for him was canceled once it was found he had not been heard from because he was in a Kansas jail. The Silver Alert said he has bipolar disorder.
