Nevada official's body found; four arrested
RENO, Nev. -- 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 suspects were arrested in the case, authorities said.
Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said while a positive identification and cause of death have not been officially established, investigators believe the body found by searchers in the Carson River is that of William McCune, who disappeared earlier this week.
Investigators suspected foul play after finding evidence Thursday of a bloody, violent struggle in McCune's apartment in Carson City. Deputies were called to the apartment after the 62-year-old McCune failed to board a flight with a co-worker and other employees found no sign of him when they went to his residence.
All four suspects are from the Carson City area, Furlong said, but detectives were unsure of their relationship to the McCune or the motive for the slaying.
