Nevada authorities have charged four people with murder in the death of the state's chief insurance examiner, William “Bill” McCune, whose bound body was discovered in the Carson River on April 6. They are Michael Evans, 23; Anthony Elliot, 20; Raul Garcia, 22; and Makyla Blackmore, 20; according to published reports.

Former colleagues are expressing sorrow at the loss of Mr. McCune, who had served as insurance examiner in the Nevada Division of Insurance for more than three years, according to a division statement. He led the effort to modernize Nevada’s fiscal and market conduct oversight of the approximately 2,300 insurers licensed to do business in the state, according to the insurance division. Previously working at the District of Columbia Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking, McCune relocated to Carson City, Nevada, specifically to assume the post of insurance examiner. In a statement, the Carson County Sheriff's Office said that robbery was the likely motive and noted there were indications of a violent struggle in Mr. McCune’s apartment.
