NASHVILLE, N.C. - A North Carolina sheriff's office has issued an arrest warrant for a man whose wife was found dead this week.
News outlets report the Nash County Sheriff's Office says it is looking for 57-year-old Lynn Keel, who is wanted on a murder charge.
Officials told WTVD that Keel is considered armed and dangerous. Keel may be in a 1998 Stepside Chevy pickup, that is pewter in color, with the North Carolina license plate BBM9232.
Investigators have accused Keel in the death of his wife, Diana Alejandra Keel, a 38-year-old mother who was first reported missing by her daughter on March 7.
Authorities say Diana Keel's body was found five days later by a N.C. Department of Transportation worker in neighboring Edgecombe County, approximately 30 miles from her home.
Prior to her body being found, Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone told reporters that Lynn Keel told investigators that his wife left with some acquaintances and hadn't returned.
