DOVER, Del. — Delaware State Police say they will file murder charges against a Milford man who is a suspect in a missing person investigation.

Police said authorities in Dillon, S.C., arrested 30-year-old Juan Strydom on a fugitive warrant early Friday in the death of 65-year-old Gary Sanders of Frederica, who was last seen Oct. 1.

The arrest came after investigators executing a search warrant at Strydom’s home on Thursday found a body buried in a wooded area. Medical examiners used dental records to identify the body as that of Sanders.

Police said Strydom will be charged with first-degree murder and abusing a corpse.
