Sunday, December 24, 2017

Just after 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, Detectives located a body believed to be that of the missing Titusville woman, Lori Lynn Upthegrove, 51 of Titusville. Lori had been reported missing by family members on December 19th. Using information provided by her husband early this morning, police located the body in a wooded area off Bobbi Lane in Titusville.

Early in the investigation, based on evidence found both in the home, and in her vehicle, Detectives believed Lori had been the victim of a violent crime. Her husband, Timothy Upthegrove, 53 of Titusville was arrested for Obstructing Justice charges last Tuesday after he made false statements to Police.

Based on the evidence thus far, Detectives believe Lori and her husband were involved in an argument at their home, 645 Clevelend St. in the early hours of Monday, December 18th. The argument became violent and her husband inflicted fatal injuries to her. The victim's body was placed into the back of her vehicle by her husband and driven to a wooded area off Bobbi Lane.

Timothy Upthegrove, 53 of Titusville, is being charged with 2nd degree Murder.
