ELKO—On July 21, 2021, at about 9 a.m., Elko Police officers were dispatched to a North Elko residence for a report of domestic battery.

Subsequent investigation revealed the suspect strangled the victim and prevented her from leaving the residence or summoning help.
The victim stated the suspect left for work that morning and she was able to contact law enforcement for assistance.
