A twenty-four year old is in custody in Jerome County after confessing to dumping the body of his uncle near a rest area south of Jackpot in Salmon Falls Creek.
Sean Shepard told Elko County Sheriff officials that he transported the body of his uncle --David Bishop -- in a garbage can and dumped him off on his way to his mother's house.
Elko County Undersheriff said he told officials the location but after search and rescue teams searched the area yesterday - they could not find anything.
They have postponed the search due to high water conditions and they want more concrete information.
Sacramento County Sheriff's department is the lead agency in this investigation as they believe the murder may have happened in California.
Bishop is six feet tall - between 200 and 240 pounds with brown hair.
If you know anything about the missing body you are encouraged to call the Elko County Sheriff's office at 775-738-3421.
