A sheriff says a body believed to be that of Nevada's chief insurance examiner was found Saturday in a river in Carson City, and four suspects were arrested in his disappearance.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong says while a positive identification and cause of death haven't been officially established, investigators believe searchers found the blanket-wrapped body of William McCune in the Carson River.

He says all four suspects are from the Carson City area, but detectives were unsure of their relationship to the 62-year-old McCune or the motive for the slaying.

Investigators suspected foul play after finding evidence Thursday of a violent struggle in McCune's apartment in Carson City.

Twenty-three-year-old Michael Evans and 20-year-old Anthony Elliot were booked on murder charges, while 20-year-old Makyla Blackmore and 22-year-old Raul Garcia were arrested on burglary charges.
