Rick Dean Slaughter
CAMP VERDE -- Camp Verde Marshal's detectives now have reason to believe Ricky Slaughter is no longer a missing person as earlier reported.
On Oct. 6, Slaughter's vehicle was located in the parking lot of the McDonald's fast food restaurant off Interstate 17 at Cordes Junction in Mayer. Video obtained from the establishment showed Slaughter securing his vehicle after retrieving personal belongings and a backpack. Slaughter then picked up his backpack and walked away under his own power. At this time, it is believed Slaughter has not met with any foul play. However, this case remains active and detectives are still perusing others leads to determine Slaughter's whereabouts.
The Camp Verde Marshal's Office welcomes any information about sightings or the whereabouts of Slaughter. He was reported missing Sept. 28 from an address on Tumbleweed Drive in Camp Verde. Slaughter is 53, white, reported 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds. He wears glasses and has a thick mustache.
