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

    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.
