TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Police have arrested three people in connection with the death of a Terre Haute radio personality Matt Luecking.

Investigators say officers found Leucking's body Monday at his apartment and soon knew they were dealing with a homicide. His cause of death hasn’t been released, and an autopsy has been scheduled for a later time, according to WTHI.

His vehicle was missing and authorities were later contacted about a man trying to use Luecking's bank card at Walmart, WTHI reports. Police tracked the man’s license plate to a Parke County address, and they found two men loading things into Luecking's car. After interviewing the men at the scene, they arrested John Collins, 24, for his murder.
