A “person of interest” possibly linked to the murder of longtime Arizona rancher Robert Krentz has been identified by Douglas-area police.
The Arizona Daily Star reports:
The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a person of interest in several burglaries this year in the Portal area in southeastern Arizona.
It is looking for Alejandro Chavez-Vasquez, who has given authorities various birth dates and lives in Agua Prieta, Mexico. Officials say he has a criminal history with convictions that include sex crimes, auto theft and being in and returning the the U.S. after being deported, according to a news release.
The news release doesn’t identify Chavez-Vasquez as a person of interest in the killing of longtime rancher Robert Krentz on March 27, but a news release of this type is unusual for the department, and the Portal area is just north of where Krentz was found dead on his ranch.
Chavez-Vasquez is currently only a person of interest in the burglaries.
But Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas said she didn’t dismiss the possibility that Chavez-Vasquez could provide useful information in the Krentz investigation. “It would depend on what he would be able to tell us about other burglaries or other open cases we have,” Capas said.
Just a reminder that Smart Girl Politics’ Arizona chapter is holding a border clean-up event in Krentz’s honor on April 24 in Bisbee. Be sure to click the link for details.blog comments powered by Disqus
