Here is the statute for tampering with physical evidence in the state of Missouri. As you can see, the offense is for the most part a Class A misdemeanor:

575.100. Tampering with physical evidence — penalties. — 1. A person commits the offense of tampering with physical evidence if he or she:

(1) Alters, destroys, suppresses or conceals any record, document or thing with purpose to impair its verity, legibility or availability in any official proceeding or investigation; or

(2) Makes, presents or uses any record, document or thing knowing it to be false with the purpose to mislead a public servant who is or may be engaged in any official proceeding or investigation.

2. The offense of tampering with physical evidence is a class A misdemeanor, unless the person impairs or obstructs the prosecution or defense of a felony, in which case tampering with physical evidence is a class E felony.

-----

Tampering with evidence is what is known as an intent crime. That is, the state would have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant deliberately altered, destroyed or concealed evidence in order to impair its integrity or the truthfulness. So the property owner could be charged, but only if the police believe that she deliberately tried to hide or destroy facts that would lead to a conclusion that the death was due to homicide.
