Eric Holland fue arrestado en diciembre 24, la denuncia decía.
Police followed the gold Avalanche to an apartment complex, where Holland got out and repeatedly ignored commands given by police, según documentos judiciales. Once Holland was in custody, police were able to confirm that both trucks were reportedly stolen, la denuncia decía.
While searching the gold truck, police found a black plastic trash bag emitting “a foul odor” with a severed head inside, según la denuncia.
Holland, on the scene, said he wouldn’t answer questions without a lawyer, según la denuncia.
Additional coolers found in the gold truck allegedly contained “two human legs” y “an apparent human torso,” la denuncia decía.
The Clark County coroner’s office identified the victim as Richard P. Molinero, a 65-year-old White male from Las Vegas. The coroner’s office ruled the death a homicide due to multiple gunshot wounds.
An attorney for Holland, PAG. David Westbrook, dicho, “The body recovered in this case was in the second truck (the Chevy) not the first (the Toyota). Adicionalmente, the truck bed was covered and the body was stored in sealed coolers. “
“In order to presume that Mr. Holland had prior knowledge of the contents of this truck, you would also have to believe that he lead police to the body intentionally,” Westbrook said. “La pregunta es: why would he do this?”
The next court appearance for Holland in this case is scheduled for January 27, according to Westbrook and court documents.
