Police say a body has been found in Riverside, Calif., in the search for the missing wife of a Marine. The body was identified as 22-year-old Brittany Killgore, who was reported missing on April 14. In addition, a woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder in the case. Brittany Killgore went missing after filing for divorce last week from Lance Cpl. Cory Killgore, who has not been named a suspect. Her cellphone was found in the Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego, but authorities said it was unclear whether she actually left Fallbrook, where she lives. Investigators said she had been seen with another Marine named Louis Ray Perez, 45, but authorities have not disclosed the nature of their relationship. Perez was arrested on an unrelated charge of possessing a stolen AR-15 rifle from Camp Pendleton. He remains jailed and has refused to cooperate with investigators.
