RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- One man is in custody after DNA testing has potentially linked him to the murder of a man at the Flamingo Motel, according to the Reno Police Department.

According to a press release, Tony Lee, 46, has been arrested on the charge of Open Murder. Lee was arrested for Misuse of 911 on March 9, after he arrived at the police station and requested 911 assistance. He arrived with bleeding injuries, but did not give any discernible information about a location of a crime or victim.

With the assistance of the Washoe County Crime Lab, DNA testing was performed on March 25 and 26, on the clothing the suspect was wearing on March 9. The testing revealed the DNA of 47-year-old Lorell Parnell, who was found dead at the Flamingo Motel on Sunday. According to RPD, this information, along with the comments made to 911 and the officers on scene of the original call on March 9, established probable cause for the arrest of the suspect on the charge of murder.

Lee is the only known suspect at this time. However, if anyone has additional information about the incident or the suspect, please call the Reno Police Department.
