YPSILANTI TWP., Mich. (WJBK) - Carrie Shaw-Hillman is already struggling with the fact that her 21-year-old daughter, Mira Dressel, lost her battle with drug addiction, and just hours ago she learned the despicable lengths two people went to get rid of her child's body.

In the early morning hours of last Saturday, police say a man called BWB Transportation for a ride. The driver responded to an address in Ypslianti, but when the customer came out he was carrying something suspicious wrapped in a sheet he placed in the back of the vehicle. They then drove to the 2700 block of Golf Side Drive.

The female cab driver knew something wasn't right so she called her boss, Derrick Campbell.

He showed up to the Golf Side address. Police say Campell, the owner of BWB transportation, had a conversation with the customer but instead of intervening, he learned it was the body of a young woman and then helped the customer dump the body under a bush.

That driver realized what was going on and immediately dialed 911.

"I'm glad that driver was a good person and turned them in. I really appreciate that," says Shaw-Hillman.

The cab driver isn't in trouble but the customer and owner of BWB Transportation sure are.

The company, which assures affordable transportation for people anywhere they need to go, is based at an Ypsilanti apartment complex on Washtenaw.

Campbell wasn't home. He is still in jail after he was charged for conspiring and concealing the death of a person.

Police believe the customer and the owner of BWB had some sort of acquaintanceship with each other. The customer who initially called for the cab will be charged tomorrow.

The autopsy results have not been released yet for Dressel. Police and her family say they suspect she died of a drug overdose. She leaves behind a 2-year-old son.
