Wichita man suspected in death of man whose body is missing

A 53-year-old Wichita man is jailed on suspicion of second-degree murder even as police continue to search for the alleged victim’s body.

Wichita police Captain Brent Allred says Jeffrey Hill was arrested on Monday.  He says a man reported that Hill was involved in a homicide in December and the victim’s body was buried somewhere outside Wichita.

Allred says investigators determined the victim was 50-year-old Jeffrey Jones of Hutchinson, an acquaintance of Hill’s.

KAKE-TV reports evidence and witness statements led police to Hill.  Allred says police are trying to determine a motive for Jones’ death.
