Funeral services planned for Boone Co. dismemberment victim


Funeral services have been planned for the victim killed and dismembered in Verona, KY last week.

Daniel Delfin, of Walton, was killed on January 14th. A visitation is planned for 11 a.m. on Thursday at the Hamilton-Stanley Funeral Home, and the funeral service at 2 p.m. A burial will follow at the New Bethel Cemetery.

Three men were arrested in Delfin's death, and charged with murder, kidnapping, abuse of a corpse, and tampering with physical evidence.

On January 15th, detectives were led to an undisclosed location in Verona, where they discovered the torso and some dismembered leg parts of a white man wrapped up and discarded in a field.

The next day, the victim was identified as Daniel Delfin. Officials believe the trio targeted Delfin because he was alleged to be a heroin dealer, and they wanted to "rid the world of evil."

Delfin was 19-years-old.
