Yes. "Zetten" results in "staan", while "stoppen in" results in "zitten in". For example:

  • Hij stopt zijn broer in een doos. Zijn broer zit in een doos.
  • Hij zet zijn broer op de grond. Zijn broer staat op de grond.

For more on the usage of "zitten" and "staan", see here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5785064

It's possible, but more if he is stiff or dead... it's a weird sentence either way. If I understand correctly stop...in is reserved for things you can "cram" into a container.... so not really people.
