Eau Claire man arrested for allegedly hiding man’s body


EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) - An Eau Claire man wanted in connection to another man's death over two years ago has been arrested.

In November 2018, Toby Cleasby of Gilmanton disappeared. A month later his body was found laying on plastic and partly covered by a tarp, inside a duplex on Seymour Road.

Roger Minck lived in the other half of the duplex.

In December 2020, Minck was charged with hiding a corpse, selling drugs and burglary. A warrant was issued for his arrest.

Police say he admitted selling oxycodone to Cleasby the week before, and the state crime lab says Minck's DNA was found on the tarp and the plastic beneath Cleasby's body.  

Eau Claire police tell News 18 Minck was arrested on Tuesday morning but no other details were available.
