LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Las Vegas Metro Police have reached out to the public for help finding a pair of suspects in a 2017 murder case.

In October 2017, 62 year old David Rathbun was reported as a missing person by family members who had not heard from him in a month.  During the following months, there were several fraudulent ATM withdrawals to Rathbun’s accounts.

LVMPD Homicide detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in locating 55 year old Charles Ausiello and 45 year old Jolene Hibbs.  Detectives have listed them as persons of interest and believe they have information regarding Rathbun’s disappearance.
