Everett police have arrested four people for investigation of unlawful disposal of human remains in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in an alley.

Police say it appears the dead man may have suffered a drug overdose at an apartment in the 2600 block of Colby Avenue. His body was then moved by the suspects to an alley behind 2628 Hoyt Ave. where it was found Tuesday, police said.

The suspects told detectives that they removed the body from the apartment because they didn’t want to get into trouble with the landlord.

The suspects, two men and two women, all live at the apartment.
