Authorities suspect foul play in the death of a San Bernardino man.
According to the Press Enterprise, a 61-year-old man was reported missing
on Wednesday, March 12. He was found dead a short time later.
When authorities investigated this man's disappearance and death, they
found his vehicle and "other evidence" that led them to believe
that his death was not natural.
On Thursday, March 13, a 34-year-old Highland man was arrested and was
booked into jail on suspicion of murder.
If this recap of the search for the missing 61-year-old man and the 34-year-old

a legitimate amount of concern that the suspect's rights may not being
The fact is, people who are arrested and accused of crimes
do have constitutional rights, and police and prosecutors have to respect
that. Sometimes, suspects need the assistance of a criminal defense attorney
