About 10:30 a.m. on July 7, police found a man’s body in an apartment in the 3600 block of Arville Street after receiving reports of a strong odor coming from the unit. The man was later identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as Samuel Lorenzo Villanueva, 29. According to the coroner’s office, Villanueva died of multiple stab and cut wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide.
