Male and Female Execute Murder Plan

On December 7, 2023, at approximately 3:32 p.m., two individuals walked into an LVMPD substation to
report Marayna Rodgers missing.

Through the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Rodgers was out with friends on December
5, 2023, and had a pre-arranged meeting with her friend Sakari Harnden (19) who would bring her boyfriend
Chance Comanche (27).

Since then, Rodgers had not been seen or heard from. Early in the investigation, detectives suspected foul
play and obtained evidence to arrest Harnden and her boyfriend Comanche for their role in the kidnapping
and disappearance of Rodgers.

On December 13, 2023, Harnden was arrested in Las Vegas by the Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT) and
booked into the Clark County Detention Center for kidnapping.

On December 15, 2023, Commanche was arrested by the members of the California FBI Criminal
Apprehension Team in Sacramento, California and is pending extradition to Nevada for Kidnapping.
Based on information obtained after the arrest of Harnden and Commanche, detectives were able to recover
human remains in a desert area in Henderson, Nevada. The remains were later identified by the Clark
County Coroner to be of Marayna Rodgers.

Detectives determined that Harnden and Commanche were responsible for the murder of Rodgers. The
charges for both individuals will be amended to open murder through coordination with the Clark County
District Attorney’s office.

The Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT) is a multi-jurisdictional task force led by the FBI and staffed in the
LVMPD’s Major Violators Bureau. It is comprised of FBI, LVMPD, Henderson and North Las Vegas Police
