A missing California man considered a person of interest in the slaying of his wife has committed suicide in Las Vegas, authorities said Friday.
The body of 59-year-old Dusan Klein of Santa Clarita was discovered by hikers Thursday on the Nevada city's outskirts, Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy Mark Pope said. Pope said in a news release that the cause of death has been ruled a suicide, but he did not provide details.
He said Nevada's Clark County Coroner's Office identified Klein's remains using dental records. The coroner's office said early Friday that no officials were immediately available for comment.
Klein, a one-time travel agent, insurance salesman and trucking dispatcher, had been described as a person of interest in the death of his wife.
He had not been seen since the body of Renata Klein was found in Angeles National Forest on June 15. An autopsy revealed she was murdered but authorities have not released a cause of death.
Klein's 1999 gold Jeep Cherokee was found abandoned Sunday in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
