A 55-year-old Ethiopian man was being sought in connection with the abduction and slaying of a southern Nevada auto dealer, police said.
Abebe Tefera Goshu was sought on a warrant issued Sept. 29 in Las Vegas on charges of murder and kidnapping in the death of 33-year-old William Kenyatta "Kenya" Jones, according to a police statement released Monday.
Relatives reported Jones missing Sept. 26. Authorities reported that his body was found two days later in a house that Goshu owns in North Las Vegas. The Clark County coroner reported that Jones died of a gunshot to the head.
Jones owned a North Las Vegas car dealership called 702 Motors, according to his Oct. 7 obituary, which also described him as a father of three.
