LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police are looking for a 27-year-old man in the stabbing death of a woman who was left bleeding to death in a residential neighborhood northwest of downtown.
Police released photos of suspect Nathan Benson, and the Clark County coroner on Monday identified the victim as 44-year-old Shanna Ralston.
Police say Benson and Ralston new each other before Ralston was mortally wounded in the attack a little before 12:15 a.m. Sunday on Greyhawk Avenue. That's near Washington Avenue and Jones Boulevard.
Benson is described as being 5 feet 5 inches tall and about 130 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. One photo shows him with a shaved head.
Police say he's got tattoos depicting skulls on his upper right arm and the numbers "702" on his upper left arm.
