June 12, 2018

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials have identified a juvenile whose body was found in an abandoned Henderson house.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Clark County coroner says 17-year-old Las Vegas resident Matthew Minkler died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Minkler’s death was ruled a homicide Monday, three days after Henderson police found him dead.

Police say two boys have been arrested in connection with Minkler’s killing. One faces a charge of murder with a deadly weapon, and the other faces charges of accessory to murder after the fact and destroying evidence.

Further details were not released because the suspects are minors.
