Police apprehended the suspect at home on May 31 following the missing person’s report of the victim.

The suspect claimed during the police investigation that he committed the crime because he got mad at the victim for being arrogant and rude when he asked him to pay his money back.

While searching for the dead body based on the suspect’s statement, police will seek an arrest warrant for the suspect.
