Newport Police say they found the body of a former marine at an apartment complex Wednesday afternoon and are searching for a "person of interest."
Police obtained a search warrant and found Anthony Martin, 38, dead in the Victoria Square Apartment Complex.
According to police, the location of the body was not readily detectable through the initial search. Absent a systematic search of the area, the body would have gone undetected.
Police are looking for Anthony Otis Simpson, 52. Simpson is described as a male black, five foot ten inches tall, weighing 250 pounds.
Authorities say Simpson should be considered "armed and dangerous." Simpson has two parole violation warrants out of California, one with an original charge for murder.
Anyone with any information regarding this matter should contact the Newport Police at 859-292-3622.
