Dennis Ray Anderson: Convicted Killer Who Kept Corpse In Barrel Is Considered Dangerous
You serve a long prison term for murdering a woman and her three-year-old granddaughter. You're now wanted because you've been keeping a corpse in a barrel in your backyard, someone you most likely killed.
You have no money, you're on foot and armed. Yeah, we guess you should be considered "dangerous."
And Dennis Ray Anderson, 64, lately of Houston, has officially been dubbed so by the U.S. Marshals Service, who are really, really interested in talking with him.
Anderson left Houston after the barrel body was discovered last week. He went to Lake Charles and is believed to be headed east from there.
The 6-foot, 230-pound Anderson might not have much trouble blending in as he traverses Dixie: "He was last seen wearing a grey short sleeve button up shirt, blue jeans, tan work boots and a black NASCAR cap with yellow stripes/flames on it," the Marshals Service says. "Anderson was also reportedly carrying a small black/brown leather bag and a "six pack" blue and white cooler."
