    Colorado authorities investigating possible serial killing after human remains turn up near New Mexico border

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime...out&li=BBnb7Kz

    An investigation into a possible serial killing was underway in Colorado Wednesday morning after authorities discovered human remains at two different properties located not far from the New Mexico border.

    The Colorado Bureau of Investigation in a press release announcing the probe did not reveal how many bodies authorities discovered near the rural community of Las Sauces. Investigative sources told The Denver Gazette however that the case could involve several people from the area who have been missing since August.

    The bodies have ?been recovered and are currently being analyzed as part of the identification process," authorities said Tuesday.

    "The sites are in close proximity to one another near the town of Las Sauces in Conejos County. The property owners are not currently living at these properties.?

    Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze told the Gazette the recently discovered remains have not been linked to the disappearance of Suzanne Morphew, who has been missing for more than six months. The Colorado woman was last seen alive during a bike ride in the Maysville area on May 10.

    The CBI is leading the new probe with assistance from four other agencies, including the Saguache County Sheriff?s office and the police departments of Alamosa and Monte Vista.

    Authorities have also called on the community to come forward with any information they may have in the case.

    ?A tip line has been created to gather information related to this investigation," the CBI said in a press release. ?Please call 719-270-0210 with any information about this incident.?

    Colorado authorities said Wednesday they are searching for a suspect nicknamed “Psycho” in connection to the discovery of three bodies recently found near a rural hamlet.

    It is unclear how suspect Adre Jordan Baroz, 26, may be linked to the unidentified bodies found last week in the tiny community of Las Sauces, but authorities said it’s their priority to get him into custody.

    Baroz, a convicted felon, is considered by police to be armed and dangerous, and a homicide warrant has been issued for his arrest.

    The suspect is from Sanford, Co., another small town near Las Sauces, and commonly known as “Psycho.”

    “Our priority is to get him into custody and identify the remains,” said John Camper, deputy director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

    The suspect’s criminal history in Colorado includes assault on a peace officer, attempted escape and theft, court records show.

    George Dingfelder, police chief of the small community of Monte Vista, which is helping out with the investigation, said Wednesday that the bodies were found on two separate properties while authorities were executing a search warrant.

    Not much is yet known about the bodies, including their gender, and it could take months to identify them, authorities said.

    It was also not known if the remains are connected to any missing-person cases in the area.

    Investigators confirm they’ve arrested Adre Jordan Baroz — known as “Psycho” — in connection with the death of three people. The remains of three victims were found on two properties in Conejos County.

    Baroz, 26, was arrested about 3 p.m. Thursday in Gallup, New Mexico at a motel. Baroz is facing charges in Colorado of first-degree homicide, first-degree assault and second-degree kidnapping.

    The Colorado Springs Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, assisting the Alamosa Police Department in the search for the fugitive, located Baroz in Gallup on Thursday afternoon. Baroz will be transported to the McKinley County Detention Center in Gallup, New Mexico.

    Jeezus, it's hard to hide with a face like that. These kids don't think of the future consequences of tattoo-ing their face, do they? Never mind job prospects, how you gonna hide from the law with that ink smeared all over your face like that???

    The information released by police is vague. How did they come to find 3 unidentified bodies at two unoccupied properties if they weren't looking for them? I assumed the bodies were buried, but the article doesn't mention that, so maybe there were complaints about the odor?

    Also...

    The sites are in close proximity to one another near the town of Las Sauces in Conejos County. The property owners are not currently living at these properties.
    It never occurred to me that someone could leave a body in my vacation home while I was away. Something new to worry about....
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    The second of three sets of human remains found last month in rural Conejos County have been identified, investigators announced Tuesday.

    A forensic odontologist identified the remains as 34-year-old Shayla Jenna Hammel, who lived in Saguache County, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Hammel was reported missing on Nov. 26 by a family member after she had not been heard from since late October.

    Investigators are still looking into the circumstances of her death, though they believe foul play was involved.

    The three sets of human remains were discovered on two properties in the rural community of Los Sauces in November.

    Adre Jordan “Psycho” Baroz, 26, was arrested days later in connection with the remains and is facing first-degree murder and kidnapping charges.

    Another set of the three remains was identified in early December as that of Myron Robert Martinez, a Del Norte man who has been missing since Nov. 6. He would have turned 38 on Nov. 15.

    Baroz has not been charged in connection with the deaths of Hammel and Martinez. However, he is accused of killing 19-year-old Selena Esquibel, according to court documents that were unsealed this month.
    So 2 out of 3 bodies have been identified. I am going to leave this here until the last one is identified.

    Two men have been arrested in connection to the discovery of human remains in the San Luis Valley in November 2020, and one suspect who has already been arrested, Adre "Psycho" Baroz, faces new charges.

    On Tuesday, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation announced that the Alamosa Police Department had arrested two more men on Monday in connection to this case: Julius Anthony Baroz, 30, and CJ Walter Dominguez, 27, both of Alamosa. Adre Baroz and Julius Baroz are brothers, the CBI confirmed.

    Both Julius Baroz and Dominguez are accused of being involved in the death of Myron Martinez, 37, of Del Norte. His remains were found in Conejos County in November 2020. Martinez was the first person to be identified after authorities began investigating at least three sets of human remains found on Nov. 10 in a rural part of the county.

    In affidavits for both Julius Baroz, also referred to as "Gato," and Dominguez, a source of information (SOI) was said to be present when Martinez was killed at the apartment of Adre Jordan Baroz, 26, of the Sanford area, also nicknamed "Psycho."

    According to the SOI, Myron came to the apartment to purchase drugs. The SOI said Julius Baroz helped hold down Martinez so Adre Baroz could slice his throat. Adre Baroz shot Martinez as well, according to the SOI.

    The affidavits say Dominguez later arrived at the apartment and helped Adre Baroz dismember Martinez's body.

    Julius Baroz faces charges of first-degree murder and tampering with a deceased human body. He's being held at the Alamosa County Detention Center on a $250,000 bond.

    Dominguez faces charges of tampering with a deceased human body, accessory to first-degree murder and second-degree kidnapping. He is being held at the Alamosa County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.

    Adre Baroz was named as a suspect in this case on Nov. 18, 2020 and was arrested the following day. He's currently being held at the Alamosa County Detention Center without bond.

    Adre Baroz faces two new charges of first-degree murder and two additional charges of tampering with remains of a deceased human in connection to the deaths of Martinez and Shayla Hammel, 34, of Saguache. Authorities identified the second set of human remains as Hammel in late December.

    Affidavits say Adre Baroz sent a man identified as Dustin McDermott, 24, to get rid of Martinez's car after his murder and take his girlfriend, Hammel, to Lasauses. It's believed Hammel and Adre Baroz had a sexual relationship for two days. The SOI told investigators Adre Baroz said he was going to kill Hammel.

    On Dec. 11, Francisco Ramirez, 38, was arrested in Pueblo on federal weapons charges and according to an affidavit, he is also under investigation for being an accessory to the murders. He was allegedly renting one of the properties near where the remains were found. Informants told investigators that “Ramirez had driven his vehicle along with a vehicle belonging to Baroz with mutilated human remains in the vehicle, sometimes for days at a time,” according to the affidavit, which also claims that Ramirez cleaned murder scenes and burned evidence. As of Tuesday, he had not been charged in connection to the deaths.

    The third set of human remains has not yet been identified.

    Other details on this case have not been released as this is an active and ongoing investigation. The affidavits and warrants are sealed.

    Anybody with information on this case or the crimes is asked to call 719-270-0210.
