Former Mouseketeer Dennis Day was found dead at his Oregon home in April, months after he was first reported missing. Now police have arrested the ex-child actor’s handyman in his death. Daniel James Burda, 36, is being held on charges of manslaughter, identity theft and abuse of a corpse, according to The Oregonian. Police say that Burda, who has a long criminal history, lived with Day and his husband in exchange for care-taking duties. Shortly before Day, 72, disappeared, he reportedly told a friend that Burda had hurt him, and the friend planned to report it to police. Day was a Mouseketeer on the Mickey Mouse Club for two seasons in the 1950s.
