Last seen on June 15, 2015, Arizona Realtor Sid Cranston, Jr. went missing after showing a listing to an unknown client near Interstate 40.

Nineteen months later, on Jan. 10, 2017, Cranston’s remains were found in a remote area near the town of Kingman, Arizona. Alfredo Blanco, who worked as a handyman and property manager for Cranston, was arrested and charged with the Realtor’s murder.

Now, Blanco’s accomplice, William Glenn Sanders, 55, has pleaded guilty before Mohave County Superior Court Judge Rick Lambert for his role in Cranston’s death, which includes tampering with physical evidence and the concealment of a dead body, according to court documents.

According to a report by the Daily Miner, Sanders is currently on probation and agreed to plead guilty to the concealment charge if prosecutors drop the tampering with evidence charge. On Aug. 31, he will face judgment and sentencing, which could still include jail time.

During the 19-month-long investigation, Sanders was interviewed multiple times by the FBI and after failing a lie detector test, he led authorities to a ranch 40 miles outside of Kingman on Jan. 7, 2017 where Cranston’s remains were located, reported the Daily Miner. He also told authorities that Blanco shot the Realtor inside a property on Wilson Ranch Road, and he helped Blanco bury Cranston.

“I’m just grateful that the FBI did step in and keep things moving,” said Sid Cranston Sr. in an interview with ABC 15 News after his son’s remains were found. “We don’t have to wonder where Sid is anymore.”

Blanco has maintained his innocence and pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges, concealment of a dead body and tampering with evidence. He is awaiting trial this summer.
