GALENA, Mo. - A truck belonging to a man whose body was found in Table Rock Lake over the weekend has been found in Arkansas and Stone County deputies have arrested a third person in their investigation of the slaying.
 
The 31-year-old man, who is being held in Stone County Jail on a 24-hour investigation hold, was arrested on suspicion of tampering with evidence, according to a deputy.
 
Two suspects in the death were arraigned Tuesday in Stone Co. Circuit Court, both charged with felonies for armed criminal action and the murder of 28-year-old Dan Martin.

A group of hikers found Martin, a resident of Lampe, Mo., dead in Table Rock Lake over the weekend. Sheriff Doug Rader launched a search for suspects once his investigators and the Missouri Highway Patrol ruled the death as suspicious.

The investigation led to the arrest of Justin Tuttle, a 29-year-old man from Lampe, and 19-year-old Annmarie Patrick from Kimberling City.

The sheriff confirmed that Martin knew both of them, and that he was romantically involved with Patrick.

But Rader stressed that his office was still waiting on an autopsy and not willing to release a motive as of the arraignment.
