LAS VEGAS – Nevada authorities believe a violent struggle with intruders in his apartment led to the death of the state’s chief insurance examiner, whose body was apparently found Saturday wrapped in a blanket and bound with duct tape in the Carson River.
Carson City Sheriff’s deputies said that they are still waiting for the cause of death and identification to be officially confirmed, but investigators believe the body found by searchers is William McCune, who disappeared last week.
Four suspects were arrested over the weekend, authorities said.
Michael Evans, 23, was taken into custody in Carson City. Anthony Elliot, 20, Raul Garcia, 22, and Makyla Blackmore, 20, were arrested on the Strip on Saturday. Evans and Elliot have been charged with murder and the others with burglary.
“We have a team in Las Vegas and they will be delivering the suspects back to Carson City, probably tomorrow,” Carson City Asst. Sheriff Ray Saylo told the Los Angeles Times. “We believe the murder was robbery related.”
