Bullhead City police arrested an 18-year-old man Thursday night as a possible suspect in the death of the son of Kingman City Councilman Philip Moon.
Jonathan Wayne Pardini is wanted for questioning in the death of Philip Earl Moon Jr., who was police say was murdered in his apartment early Saturday.
Pardini was arrested around 8:30 p.m.
in the 5500 block of Topaz Drive in Fort Mohave, Bullhead City police Sgt.
Sonny O'Hara said.
Pardini, who is unemployed, had been being sought via a warrant for an apparently unrelated first-degree residential burglary.
"This is more than a random connection," O'Hara said, but refused to elaborate.
Moon Jr., 45, was found dead by his brother around 6 a.m.
Saturday in the 1600 block of Marble Canyon Drive.
It is believed he was killed a few hours before he was found, O'Hara said.
An autopsy performed on Moon Monday by county Coroner Dr.
Don Nelson revealed that Moon was killed by a firearm, which apparently has been recovered by police.
Details on the type and caliber of the weapon or the number of shots fired have not been released.
Police also declined to release information on whether Moon's apartment was burglarized.
