Dead man's truck found near Yucca

YUCCA - The truck belonging to suspected homicide victim Charles John McCarty was found abandoned by railroad tracks in Yucca.

Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter said the 1997 Dodge Ram was found Wednesday night.

A friend earlier this week found the body of McCarty, 70, slumped over a kitchen table and covered in blood at McCarty's home in the 11200 block of Bennie Road.

Carter on Monday said the sheriff's office would not release details on how McCarty was killed, but they know he was alive on Sunday, when he spoke with a relative.

Anyone with information on the homicide or the location of the vehicle is asked to contact the Mohave County Sheriff's Office at (928) 753-0753 or Silent Witness at (928) 753-1234.

Autopsy results are pending.
