BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - Kitsap County sheriff’s detectives investigating the disappearance and robbery of an 89-year-old man say it’s now a murder case.

The Kitsap County Coroner’s Office was searching Thursday for relatives of an elderly man found in a container Wednesday behind a home in north Mason County.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson said Wednesday detectives believe the body is related to the disappearance of Robert Archie Hood.

Investigators believe Hood was robbed and killed around Dec. 17 and that his body was disposed of.

Kitsap County prosecutors Thursday charged Robert Pry, 29, with first-degree murder in addition to previous charges. Five others were also charged in the case.

A seventh person, Robert Lavalle Davis, was charged Thursday with robbery and rendering criminal assistance.

Police are still searching for Arnold Mafnas Cruz, one of the men charged.
