Grisly details have been released in a southern Iowa murder case. Investigators say the body of a 53-year-old Ottumwa man was dismembered, then put in a car which was set on fire last week. 31-year-old Kenny Hemm from Eldon is in jail, charged with the murder of Larry Pippenger, who was a paraplegic. A saw was found in the burned-out car with Pippenger’s body, and investigators say they found an empty miter saw box in Kenny Hemm’s garage. According to police, blood samples taken from the shower curtain in Hemm’s home match Pippenger’s D-N-A. Hemm’s being held on one-million dollars bond. He also faces drug charges filed in January.
