PHOENIX - Phoenix police believe they have found the body of a missing man in a cold case they have been working on for almost two years.

In August of 2009 the Phoenix Police Department Missing Persons Unit began investigating the suspicious disappearance of William McGrath.

McGrath's body was never found, but eventually an arrest was made for first degree murder, fraud schemes and other related charges.

Brad Tocker was convicted for the murder of McGrath in March, even without his body being discovered.

The home where his body was discovered was that of Tocker's mother

Phoenix Police investigators, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and the medical examiner's office worked Tuesday to recover the body of McGrath buried under the kitchen of the home located in the area of 27th Street and McDowell Road.
