San Bernardino police responded to a 911 call of suspicious activity early Monday morning at a TV and radio repair business in the 2100 block of N. Sierra Way, officials said.

“The victim was found deceased inside suffering trauma, indicative of a homicide,” police said in a news statement.

Police did not specify how the 64-year-old died.

The victim’s white Ford F150 quad cab truck, with California license plate, was missing from the murder scene, police said.

An investigation into Cone’s death led detectives to his wife, Laurie, who was arrested Wednesday for murder. She has been booked at the West Valley Detention Center.

Police believe there are additional suspects linked to the case.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Detective Al Tello at (909) 384-5747 or the San Bernardino Police Department Hotline at (909) 384-5656.
