SPOKANE, Wash-- The business partner suspected of contracting the murder of Douglas Carlile could also be linked to the disappearance of a North Dakota man.
The mother of missing person, KC Clark, said her son did business with James Henrikson.
The lead detective in the Carlile case said in a search warrant that he believed it was a murder for hire by Henrikson.
Clark’s mother, Jill Williams described him as the light of her life, but said he began changing and carrying a gun when he started working for Henrikson.
“He started carrying it everywhere he went,” she said. “He also told people around him he was afraid for his life and for friends of his.”
Williams said Clark's friends believed Henrikson was responsible when her son vanishing nearly two years ago.
Seeing the court documents that linked Henrikson to the Carlile case reassured her on her suspicion.
A maternal instinct and information she collected on her own made the past couple years agonizing for Williams.
“I do believe he was murdered,” she said. “I don’t think he’s on this earth, except maybe bones somewhere.”
Federal agents raided Henrikson’s home Tuesday and confiscated cars, documents and weapons according to sources.
Friends of KC Clark said they believe his case was a hired hit, similar to Carlile’s murder.
