A suspected accomplice to a man who is accused of abusing the corpse of a missing person faced a Broward judge through video conference Thursday morning.

Police records reveal that 38-year-old Blythe Gregg, of Pompano Beach, is seen on video alongside 39-year-old Michael Sullivan last summer inside a storage unit where investigators say the body of missing Fort Lauderdale resident Michael Babbit was being temporarily hidden.

Officials arrested Sullivan last September.

According to detectives, he was keeping Babbit’s body in a deep freezer in the Oakland Park storage unit.

When it began to smell, detectives say that Sullivan placed the body into a rental van and dumped it in the Everglades, where Fort Lauderdale found and identified it as Babbit’s.

Records also show that Gregg rented the van.

Gregg is facing charges of abuse of a dead body and tampering with evidence.

The judge doubled the standard bond on Gregg’s charges of abusing a corpse and evidence tampering.

She also faces a $1,000 bond for possession of methamphetamine, raising her bond to a total of $41,000.
