BILLINGS — Authorities say a body found near Shepherd may be that of an Illinois man kidnapped from a Billings hotel room.
Billings police are investigating 29-year-old Dejuan Laster’s Thursday kidnapping by two men who claimed to be FBI agents.
Police Chief Rich St. John says investigators believe the body found Sunday is that of Laster. An autopsy will confirm the cause of death and identify the victim.
One man has been arrested and police are seeking another.
James Adam Walker is being held without bond. The 32-year-old Walker is facing charges of aggravated kidnapping and robbery.
St. John says police are seeking another man named Simon Jacobson.
Police say Laster is from the Chicago area and frequents Billings to visit family.
