Search in 6th Day for Nevada Teen Wanted in Family Killings
News

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities say a Las Vegas-area teenager being sought in the stabbing deaths of his mother and 9-year-old brother might have had a three-day head start as he eludes authorities for a sixth day.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul said Wednesday that the search continues for Adrian Navarro-Canales.

Police found Elvira Canales-Gomez and 9-year-old Cesar Navarro dead Friday in a bloody bathroom in the suburban apartment where they celebrated Navarro-Canales' 16th birthday just days earlier.

Police say Navarro-Canales dropped out of high school last November, and his cousin told police the teen has said he wanted to return to Mexico.

Navarro-Canales was first sought as a possible victim, then named Monday in a murder warrant that indicates he'd be prosecuted as an adult.

Henderson police investigators think the killings happened Sept. 17.
