Jonathan Lewis HerndonLOUISVILLE, KY – Police say Jonathan Herndon killed is girlfriend inside their apartment and then lived with her corpse for days.

Police were called to the couple’s apartment on Sunday to perform a welfare check after the victim’s best friend became worried that she could not contact her.

When police got inside the apartment, they found Herndon unconscious on a couch trying to overdose. Police say there was a suicide note nearby, but they have not detailed what was written.

After searching the apartment they would find the decomposing body of Herndon’s girlfriend, Constance Thomas, dead inside her bedroom. She had been hidden under a pile of clothes and had a garbage bag wrapped around her head.

The official cause of death was later determined to be blunt force trauma. The weapon used has not been identified.

Police would also find Thomas’ dog, Lex, dead inside the apartment. Detectives aren’t sure if the dog died from neglect after Thomas died, or if it was also killed by Herndon.

Herndon was arrested and charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. He is being held on $100,000 bond at Louisville Metro Corrections.
