LOS ANGELES -- A Southern California man's body has been found in Arizona, and authorities have detained his godson as a suspect.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Lt. Paul Becker says 51-year-old Premium Fortenberry went missing Sunday, along with his van, a large trash can and his godson, 23-year-old George Cleggett.

Becker says police then discovered blood throughout the Covina apartment.

Fortenberry's body was discovered Sunday near Canyon Lake, about 50 miles southeast of Phoenix.

Maricopa County medical examiners say he died of blunt impact to his head.

Arizona police spotted Cleggett driving Fortenberry's van Monday night. Cleggett is being held on an outstanding robbery warrant from Louisiana.
