(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–An Arizona coroner confirms the woman’s body found in Mohave County earlier this month is that of Sheila Linke, the Las Vegas woman who disappeared in January after an argument with a tenant.

A man renting rooms from Linke–Edward Kopp–said the two had an eviction dispute, that she threatened him with a knife, and that he killed her and buried her in Arizona.

The coroner says she died of strangulation and blunt force to the head–cause of death: homicide.
