A Blue Springs man charged with dumping a woman’s body in a creek in Cass County is scheduled to be sentenced in Jackson County court on Friday afternoon. Lance Gross, 53, pleaded guilty in late January 2013 to one count of abandonment of a corpse. According to police, Peggy Perez, 48, died in Gross’ home while the two were having sex. Perez and Gross are believed to have met at a bar in Kansas City. Prosecutors allege Gross waited for three days before calling his brother, Marlin Gross, to help him dispose of the body. Perez’s remains were found in a creek at 315th Street and Route T in January 2012. Gross will receive his punishment at 3:00 p.m. Friday.
