Airman Under Arrest In Connection With Clinton Reeves Disappearance

Police say an Alaska-based airman is under arrest in connection with another airman’s disappearance.

Anchorage police say 24-year-old James Devinn Thomas was arrested by homicide detectives yesterday night at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

He is charged with six counts of evidence tampering and police say he is a “person of interest” in the disappearance of 22-year-old Clinton Reeves more than three weeks ago.

Thomas’ arrest came on the same day a man’s body was found in suburban Eagle River about 10 miles north of Eagle River.

Lt. Dave Parker says the body hasn’t been identified. He says Reeves is the only missing male that police know about.

Reeves, a soldier from Missouri, and based at JBER, was last heard from April 22.
