DiFelice’s roommate at the time told investigators Nuttall, then 21, “asked if he could sleep in the house, as he had nowhere else to go” and the roommate “said she could not allow that because [DiFelice] was in the house and didn’t know him well,” the report states.
Last year, authorities took a DNA sample from Nuttall, which was a match to forensic evidence recovered from underneath the victim’s fingernails, KLAS-TV claimed.
At the time police took the DNA from Nuttall at his home, he told officer “he didn’t know who [the investigator] was talking about” when he asked him about DiFelice.
Nuttall was booked into the Clark County Detention Center, where he was being held without bail.
