The sports utility vehicle Darren Mack allegedly fled in after killing his wife and shooting a judge in June has been recovered in Mexico and returned to Reno.
Police say investigators hope to obtain a search warrant so they can begin searching it Thursday.
The 2006 Ford Explorer that police say Mack rented from Budget
Rent-a-Car was discovered at a parking garage in Ensenada, Mexico,
near the United States border.
It was found by a private investigator working to find vehicles stolen from the rental agency. Reno police detectives traveled there and towed it back to the Washoe County Crime Lab late last night.
So far, they have been unable to find the knife used in the June 12th slashing death of Mack's estranged wife, Charla, the gun used in the sniper shooting of the family court judge handling their divorce, Chuck Weller, or any casings from the bullets.
The 45-year-old Mack is scheduled to appear in Washoe County District Court tomorrow for a hearing on a number of motions, including his lawyers' request for him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
