CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Chandler Police Department said on Wednesday officers have made an arrest in connection to the death of Amy "Ruby" Leagans.

Investigators said Timothy Sullivan was taken into custody on Wednesday afternoon. They didn't elaborate on how they caught him or how they believe he's responsible for the death of Leagans.

Police said family members reported Leagans missing on Oct. 27 because they hadn't heard from her since Oct. 21. Investigators said her disappearance was suspicious and then her body was found near a river bottom in the area of Central Avenue and Watkins Road last week. The investigation is ongoing.
