Man Linked to Unsolved Murder Arrested on Prostitution-Related Charges

LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas police have arrested 33-year-old Solomon Barron on several prostitution-related charges, including pandering and living off the earnings of a prostitute.

According to the arrest report, Barron transported several women from the east coast to work for him as prostitutes in Las Vegas. One of the girls contacted police after she decided she no longer wanted to work as a prostitute.

Barron rented multiple apartments near Flamingo and Valley View where several prostitutes lived and worked, according to police. Detectives raided those apartments in January of 2010 and found evidence that Barron was running a prostitution-related operation.

Barron talks to America's Most Wanted about Lindsay Harris

In May of 2005, Lindsay Harris was reported missing. Harris worked in the Las Vegas area as a prostitute and Barron claimed to be her boyfriend. Barron said he was a hip-hop promoter and not involved in Harris' escorting profession.

Barron was questioned extensively by Henderson Police about Harris' disappearance, but was never charged with a crime. Three years later, Harris' dismembered body was found off the side of an interstate in Illinois. The Illinois State Police are now handling the investigation.

In the most recent arrest report, one of Barron's prostitutes said he told her about Harris. The woman said she believed Barron was threatening her by providing details of Harris' disappearance and murder.

Barron's preliminary hearing has been scheduled for April 28, 2010.
