VIDEO: Police seek persons of interest in connection to case of missing man


Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two persons of interest captured on surveillance video dumping a bloody bag into a dumpster last year, which authorities believe may be connected to the death of a local man.

For the past year, police believed Tarran Olson-Carlisle, 25, was a missing person. However, LVMPD Lt. Dan McGrath said Thursday that detectives believe “he is most likely dead.”

LVMPD’s homicide section took over the investigation at the beginning of 2018. Detectives are now focusing on surveillance video captured in March 2017 behind a shopping complex near Buffalo Road and Flamingo Drive. Surveillance video shows a dark SUV pull up and one of two men dumps a garbage bag into a dumpster. Inside the bag, police found Olson-Carlisle’s clothes, along with traces of his blood and several other items.

“I’m not prepared to release all that but I can tell you maybe some rubber gloves and a couple of items that would also raise suspicion,” said McGrath.

However, with the passage of so much time, police are now convinced Olson-Carlisle is dead. The question remains: what happened to him?

Detectives say the two persons of interest could have answers.

Anyone with any information about Terran Olson-Carlisle, or anyone with any information about the two people of interest in the video, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555.

Tips leading directly to an arrest or indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a cash reward.
