Four Arrested After Body Of Missing State Official Found

RENO, Nev. (April 7, 2013)--A body believed to be that of Nevada's chief insurance examiner was found wrapped in a blanket and bound with duct tape Saturday in a river in Carson City, and four people were arrested in the case, authorities said.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said that while a positive identification and cause of death haven't been officially established, investigators believe the body found by searchers in the Carson River is that of William McCune, 62, who disappeared earlier this week.

All four of those arrested are from the Carson City area, but detectives are unsure of their relationship to McCune or motive for the slaying.

Still, Furlong says investigators continue to believe McCune's death concerned "personal" matters and was not work-related.

Michael Evans, 23, and Anthony Elliot, 20, were booked on murder charges, while Raul Garcia, 22, and Makyla Blackmore, 20, were arrested on burglary charges.
