Talk about the world becoming a violent place. As if murder isn’t bad enough, it seems like it’s becoming more and more popular. More people are joining in on the killing and crime. A man and woman have now been arrested for being linked to a death of man. The man’s body was found in a Peoria Canal. The body was found sometime last week. Seem’s like whatever happened, it was a man and woman couple that had a role in the canal man’s death.


Police Link Couple to Found Body in Canal


According to a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Detective, they have found some evidence that would link the man and woman to the body they found floating. The man, forty-one year old Nathan Perez and the woman, Forty year old Billian Jean are husband and wife. The body of the floating victim turned out to be thirty-five year old Rolland Tockey.


A bicyclist reported finding Mr. Tockey’s body on Wednesday in the Canal. This was August twentieth and was near the 71st Avenue and Greenway Road.  At first the police from the Peoria police department were there to respond to the call, however the investigation was turned over to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).


The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office stated that the investigation led the investigating officers to a home which was near 67th and Olive Avenues. From there they found even more evidence, proving that the man and woman were most likely guilty in some part of the Canal man’s death.


Nathan Perez is in pretty deep trouble, seems like he’s the main suspect in this case. He is being held on $750,000 bond for “suspicion of first degree murder and concealing a dead body”. His wife, Billie Jean however is no longer in custody, she was released from prison. At first she was arrested as well as booked on charges of ” hindering prosecution”.
