    New London police have arrested two men and they are searching for a woman after the body of a man who overdosed was found abandoned in a parking lot in May.

    Officers found the body of Lebro Mei when they responded to Cedar Grove Avenue just after 7 a.m. on May 7 to investigate a report of a deceased man in the lot.

    Police said 51-year-old William Dietz, of New London, 37-year-old Gabrielle Fox, of New London, and 54-year-old William Garrett dropped Mei’s body in the lot after he overdosed and suffered medical complications and all three were actively involved in the incident.

    Dietz was arrested on Aug. 14 and charged with removal of a body of deceased person, reckless endangerment in the first degree, tampering with evidence and conspiracy to commit tampering with evidence.

    Police said they are looking for Fox to arrest her on this active warrant.

    Charges against Fox and Garrett, who is incarcerated at Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Facility in Uncasville, include removal of a body of deceased person, tampering with evidence and conspiracy to commit tampering with evidence.

    The warrant for Garrett will be served during his next scheduled court date on Sept. 5, police said.
