UPDATE: June 23, 2012
Volunteers are still searching for Keith Goldberg’s body.
“It’s a needle in a haystack,” David Cummings who is organizing the searches said. “We know the subjects were out here for six hours total the day his body was, we assume, dumped out here.”
Metro Homicide detectives suspect Goldberg’s body could be somewhere in this area. Cell phone tower records show the suspects, Christopher and Georgene “Cookie” Ross, were in the area for six hours February 1. Authorities say this crime was the violent result of a love triangle.
UPDATE: April 9, 2012
Georgene Ross, the ex-girlfriend Keith has been arrested on murder charges related to his disappearance, the man’s family said Monday night.
Jodi Goldberg, the sister of missing person Keith Goldberg, said the ex-girlfriend was one of two people arrested Monday afternoon. The two suspects are in the process of being booked at Clark County Detention Center.
Keith Goldberg, 54, a cab driver for Lucy Cab Co. in Las Vegas went missing in January.
On January 31, he made several stops, one at Dotty’s casino and he was seen on a surveillance camera near St. Rose Parkway. Later that day he got a haircut and then went back to his old Henderson apartment at 2362 N Green Valley Parkway where he used to live with his girlfriend, before she broke up with him to go back to her husband. She moved out of the apartment in December and Keith in January.
Then at 3:52 p.m. Keith’s ex-girlfriend called the cab company using Keith’s cell phone and said Keith was sick and wouldn’t be in that day. That was the last time Keith’s phone was used.
A private investigator confirmed that Keith and his ex-girlfriend and her husband saw Keith the day he disappeared. Apparently they argued, although it is not known what about, but they had argued before over the property left at the apartment.
Keith’s car was found parked on the street at at apartment complex near Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Blvd. on February 10th.
Authorities call the case suspicious and the family is looking for help in finding Keith.
Although the ex-girlfriends name has not been released, a comment left by a reader named IVCAB1111 of the Las Vegas Review Journal states: “The girlfriends name is Georgene Ross. She went by the name Cookie. Her husband is Christopher Ross. Cookie and Keith lived together at 2362 N. Green Valley PKWY Henderson NV 89014. He moved out of their apartment due to the issues he was having with Cookie and Chris. He felt unsafe. The 2 of them refused lie detector tests. I wonder why. Anyone with any info please contact the police. Keith was a great person and I miss him dearly. We were becoming great friends and I am sick over this.”
