Maksim Stankevich

A 41-year-old man is being charged with abuse of corpse after a man overdosed in his Bensalem Township apartment last month, and instead of calling for help, he wrapped the victim’s body with a rope and blanket and left him behind a red dumpster of a nearby apartment complex. 

Maksim Stankevich is also being charged with theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property after taking the overdose victim’s cellphone, backpack and two T-shirts. The charges, all second-degree misdemeanors, were filed Thursday, Oct. 14, 2021, before Magisterial District Judge Joseph P. Falcone. 

Stankevich is being held on a probation detainer and will be arraigned at a later date.  

Bensalem Township Police Department began the investigation on Sept. 16, 2021, when they were dispatched at 2:49 p.m. to the Townhomes at Gateway apartment complex, 335 Thunder Circle, on a report of a body found.
