LAS VEGAS — Authorities have arrested a suspect in the case of a missing Phoenix man who was found dead a few weeks ago inside the trunk of a car abandoned in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said 37-year-old Tony Danh was taken into custody last week in San Diego for charges in relation to a decomposing body that was found on Aug. 19.
Police have said Haggi's remains were left in the trunk for a considerable amount of time before they were discovered.
Danh is currently awaiting extradition back to Las Vegas to be charged for crimes in relation to Haggi's death. Las Vegas police have not yet said whether the victim and suspect knew each other.
Anyone with any information about this incident is urged to contact the LVMPD homicide section by phone at 702-828-3521.
