Family of missing man reports suspects in case arrested


The ex-girlfriend of a man missing since January has been arrested on murder charges related to his disappearance, the man's family said Monday night.

Georgine Ross, the ex-girlfriend of Keith Goldberg, was arrested Monday evening on charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder, jail records confirmed. Ross' husband, Christopher Ross, faces the same charges. Both are being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.

Jodi Goldberg, Keith Goldberg's sister, said she was relieved but anxious to locate Keith Goldberg's body. He was last seen on Jan. 31. "Justice still needs to be served," she said.

She had previously implicated the pair in her brother's disappearance. Keith Goldberg in December broke up with his girlfriend of two years, Georgine "Cookie" Ross. Ross had left Keith Goldberg for her husband, Christopher Ross, from whom she had been separated but not divorced, Jodi Goldberg said. It was unclear whether Keith Goldberg, 54, knew his girlfriend was married during their relationship.

On the morning of Jan. 31, Keith Goldberg went to a Dotty's casino near Las Vegas Boulevard South and St. Rose Parkway, where he was recorded on camera . That was the last known photo taken of him . At 3:52 p.m., someone called Keith Goldberg's employer, the Lucky Cab Co., and called in sick for him . Employees told the Goldbergs that the caller identified herself as "Cookie." That was the last call made with Keith Goldberg's cellphone, which hasn't been recovered. He was reported missing Feb. 3 .

Family members are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of their brother's body, which they suspect was dumped.
