BROCKVILLE, Ont. — An Ontario man who ran over and killed a teen with his truck, and a friend who helped conspire a coverup to move the body to a skate park and make it look like a skateboarding accident, pleaded guilty to several charges Monday.
According to agreed facts read in court, Rusty Pearce, 22, and Joseph Greer, 24, were partying together in the early morning hours of Sept. 1 when Pearce, driving an intoxicated Greer back to a party, ran over 16-year-old Aaron Stevenson, skateboarding home in Brockville, Ont.
Shaken after hitting the teen, the pair continued to drive to the party with the body of Stevenson in the cab of the truck, where it landed after impact. There, the men came up with a plan: Drive Stevenson’s body to an old skate park in town and make it look like a skateboarding mishap.
The two drove to the skate park, dragging the body out of the truck and placing it on the side of the road.
