PHOENIX - Authorities say the body of a man missing nearly two years has been found under a Phoenix home.
According Phoenix police, Bradley Tocker was convicted in March for the murder of 50-year-old William McGrath, whose body was never found.
"I had to tell (McGrath's) family I was confident they would not have a burial for their brother," said Melissa Lutch with the Phoenix Police Department. "I'm relieved I was wrong."
Police say McGrath went missing in August of 2009 and Tocker was eventually arrested for first-degree murder, fraud schemes and other related charges.
Police said Tocker may have used McGrath's identity to steal tens of thousands of dollars. Investigators said Tocker was hired by the victim to do a contracting job; they apparently met on a male dating site.
"The motive on this is financial," said Lutch. "Complete greed."
Phoenix police investigators, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and the Medical Examiner's Office worked Tuesday morning to recover McGrath's body.
"There's no way anyone who bought this house would have any indication there was a person buried under the flooring," said Lutch. "(Tocker) did a very good job hiding the victim."
Air15 video showed investigators working behind the home near 27th Street and McDowell Road Tuesday morning.
Tocker is scheduled to be sentenced July 8th.
A spokesperson for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office would not comment on whether Tocker gave up the location of McGrath's body for a more lenient sentence.
The remains will go to the Medical Examiner's office for a positive identification.
