Hunters find body believed to be missing man from Chino Valley

Hunters south of Interstate 40 and east of Kingman called the Mohave County Sheriff's Office on Sunday to report finding a dead body inside a truck believed to be that of a missing Chino Valley man, Chino Valley Police Commander Mark Garcia said.

When Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrived they found the body of a man believed to be Darrell Johnson, 45, Garcia said.

Family members told Chino Valley police that they last saw Johnson on Jan. 21, that he was despondent, and might have a handgun, Garcia said.

Preliminary investigation has determined that Johnson died of a single self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, and no foul play is suspected, Garcia said.
