Missing man’s body found; death ruled homicide

The body of a man reported missing last week has been found, and police have ruled it a homicide.

Lester “Roy” Jones, 44, was reported missing from Union City on Saturday, according to Channel 2 Action News. Union City police found the body near an abandoned house off Cotter Drive.

Patrick McDonald told Channel 2 he gave Jones his car and bank card to go to Wal-Mart last Thursday, but he never returned. Surveillance video shows three men in the car attempting to use the card at an ATM, and one is wearing a surgical mask, the station reported.

The stolen car was later found crashed in Chicago after being used to commit more crimes, and police have suspects in custody.
