RENO, Nev. (AP / KTNV) -- A Nevada Sheriff says he suspects foul play in the disappearance of the state's chief insurance examiner after evidence of a bloody, violent struggle was uncovered in his apartment.
Carson City Sheriff's deputies were called to the apartment Thursday after 62-year-old William McCune failed to board a flight with a co-worker and other employees found no sign of him when they went to his residence.
Sheriff Ken Furlong said Friday that investigators found blood scattered throughout areas of the apartment that indicated an "obvious struggle," but it's too early to say whether anyone died.
He says it appears McCune's disappearance involves a "personal relationship" and isn't work-related.
At 8:10 a.m. Saturday morning, Carson City's Sheriff's Search and Rescue personnel found a wrapped body in the Carson River.
Identification of the body is underway.
Carson City Special Enforcement officers were dispatched to Las Vegas where three persons of interest had been reported.
The team arrived in Las Vegas and executed search warrants. The Carson City Special Enforcement Team then coordinated their efforts with Las Vegas police.
Shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, three suspects were taken into custody near the Las Vegas Strip.
Makyla Blackmore and Raul Garcia were arrested on charges of burglary and Anthony Elliot was arrested on charges of murder. All three were arrested on warrants issued out of Carson City courts in connection with the disappearance of McCune.
On Saturday morning, Michael Paul Evans was also located and arrested in Carson City. He was booked on charges of murder, battery with a deadly weapon causing substantial bodily harm, burglary and murder of an older person.
