GALLUP, N.M. (AP) — FBI officials say a man has been killed on the Navajo Nation near Gallup, New Mexico and they are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

The man’s body was found about 6:30 a.m. Friday on China Springs Loop, about 4 miles (6 ½ kilometers) north of Gallup. Authorities say he is not being identified at this time.

The body had multiple stab wounds, but the cause of death was pending an autopsy. The victim’s burned truck was found south of Gallup.
