MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – 57-year-old Gilbert Todd Revere of Moraine had his arraignment in Kettering Municipal Courthouse Monday morning, following charges related to human remains found in the treeline at his home.
Revere faces two felony counts of tampering with evidence, one felony charge of gross abuse of a corpse, and a misdemeanor for failing to report a death.
Thursday night, Moraine police found human remains at the back of Revere’s property in the 5500 block of Hemple Road.
They are believed to be connected to a missing persons case out of Middletown dating back to May 16, 2017.
Court documents showed Revere admitted to failing to report a death, moving the deceased to avoid detection and covering the body with a tent.
Revere also admitted to hiding the deceased person’s clothing in the basement at the house on Hemple Road.
Revere lives at the home with his mother and one child.
We spoke to multiple neighbors who did not want to be identified that said he mostly kept to himself, but would never have expected human remains to be found on his property.
In Monday’s video arraignment, Judge Frederick Dressel said the court will appoint Revere a public defender, and scheduled a preliminary hearing for September 14.
“Mr. Revere, it is likely that this case will be presented to the grand jury directly,” said Dressel. “If that occurs before your preliminary hearing date, then that date will be canceled.”
Revere was booked in the Montgomery County jail on a $250,000 bond.
The Montgomery County Coroner’s office has yet to release the identity of the remains.
