William McCune, Nevada's chief insurance examiner, found dead in river

Four suspects arrested

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities say 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.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong says 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 62-year-old William McCune, who disappeared earlier this week.

All four suspects 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, who is 23, and 20-year-old Anthony Elliot were booked on murder charges, while 22-year-old Raul Garcia and 20-year-old Makyla Blackmore were arrested on burglary charges.
