Person of Interest Named in Burley Homicide
(BURLEY) – The Cassia County Sheriff’s Office has named a person of interest in an ongoing homicide investigation. 54-year-old Russ Taft was found dead in a motel crawl space last Friday, and authorities believe a former motel employee, James Duane Ambrose, might have something to do with it. Taft appears to have suffered blunt-force trauma and was stabbed in the heart. Ambrose was last seen in Las Vegas May 7, but could be just about anywhere. Those with information about his whereabouts can call Cassia County at 208-878-9313.
