BALTIMORE (AP) - The U.S. Attorney's office in Baltimore says a federal prosecutor who went to law school in North Carolina was found dead Thursday afternoon.
Jonathan P. Luna was found stabbed and shot to death in a Pennsylvania creek after failing to show up at the trial of a rapper and another man accused of dealing heroin.
Brecknock Township police say he was discovered face-down in the water behind the parking lot of a well-drilling company in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, about 70 miles from Baltimore.
Luna was handling the case against Baltimore rap singer Deon Lionnel Smith and his one-time associate, Walter Oriley Poindexter.
Lou Bilionis, a University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill law professor who taught Luna, says he was a bright and gifted man. He said Luna visited the law school recently and they had caught up.
