Body found in Oregon home identified as missing Mouseketeer Dennis Day
After seeing his picture from the 50's I remember who he was as I used to watch the Mickey Mouse Club all the time way back in the 50's.
Very sad to hear this. He deserved better.
Very sad situation. Does not sound like the husband is in good health.
I’m confused. It took from July to April to find his body in his own home? Why didn’t they check his home first?
Arrest made in Dennis Day's death
Very strange timeline:
July 13, 2018: Day's husband admitted to hospital. (But who called the authorities??)
July 17, 2018: police learn that Day was allegedly going to visit friends. (But who told them this??)
July 26, 2018: Day's car is found in the possession of an unidentified male and female.
July 27, 2018: Day is officially listed as a Missing Person.
August 8, 2018: police receive a report of a "bad smell" coming from Day's home. Police investigate and report that "nothing smelled" in the area.
April 4, 2019: police bring in a cadaver dog and locate Day's body inside the home.
It took them 8 months to bring in a cadaver dog. That's a shame.
so very sad...R.I.P. I fondly remember him in the MMC when I was a youngster...
More interestingly is the fact that they searched the house several times while he was missing and no body was found. I’m curious where they located it. If it was buried on the property, etc. Since there was an arrest for manslaughter, I’m curious to what led to that.
Reading the timeline I’m not a fan of how the investigation was handled either.
You probably saw a picture of the Dennis Day who was a regular on THE JACK BENNY SHOW in the 40s(radio)and TV(50s, 60s). This is a different Dennis Day, a Woman.
Oops, there WAS a Dennis Day on the 50s Mickey Mouse club! So he was half of a Gay Marriage. OK. I got confused. The other Dennis Day's real name was Owen McNutley.
Oops. I thought there was a female "Dennis Day" on a later version of MOUSE, but I was wrong!

Sounds like the police did search inside the house but didn't find anything suspicious.
RIP>>I watched the MMC in the 60s, as I was born in the 1960s..I know of the Jack benny/Disney 1940s Dennis Day (Johnny Appleseed at Disney)
More details released
Day's body was hidden beneath a giant pile of clothes. I really have to wonder how anyone could miss that.
Man it just sounds worse and worse. It’s almost there with Bobby Driscoll.
