Jan Dunn Keller Remembrance

St. Augustine, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Timothy Rose, a 51-year-old St. John's County man, was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly decapitated and dismembered his girlfriend, who's body parts were later discovered in Rose' garage and buried in a nearby wooded area.

According to the St. John's County Sheriff's, authorities were notified that 48-year-old elementary school teacher, Jan Dunn Keller, was missing after she didn't show up for work Monday.

Detectives, upon information and belief that Keller's life was in danger, forced their way into Rose' home Tuesday morning.

Once inside, officers reportedly found Rose unconscious on the floor with a pill bottle and a shotgun next to him. He was taken to the hospital.

During a search of the home, officers found body parts wrapped in a tarp in the garage and more body parts buried in a nearby wooded area, police say.

Although final results of the autopsy have been delayed due to body decomposition, prosecutors went forward with murder charges on Wednesday. A guest book page for Jan Keller has also been set up for family and friends to share their remembrances by the St. Augustine Record.

Rose has been arrested twice for domestic violence and once for battery, according to court records.

He was booked into the St. John's County Jail on a felony charge of willful homicide and has been ordered held with out bail.
