Authorities know the name of one of the three found in San Luis Valley last month after being helped by a dentist who specializes in using teeth to identify unknown bodies.
One set of bodies recovered in Conejos County in November belongs to Del Norte’s 38-year-old Myron Robert Martinez, according to a Colorado Research Agency news release. Martinez was reported missing at the Rio Grande County Sheriff’s Office on November 6, after telling police that his family had not been in contact with him since late October.
Investigators contacted the Martinez family and informed them of the death. Investigators suspect cheating, although the cause and method of death have not been identified, according to a news release. They continue to work to determine the circumstances surrounding his death.
On November 17, Colorado law enforcement agencies announced that they had found three human bodies in two locations near Las Sauce in Conejos County. Two days later, authorities arrested Adre “Psycho” Barros in New Mexico in connection with the body. Barros has been detained in Alamosa County Jail for one murder, one assault, and two kidnappings. He has not been charged with Martinez’s death, a CBI news release said. Barros’s arrest warrant is sealed.
The Sheriff’s Office of Rio Grande has joined the Task Force to investigate the case.
Investigators continue to identify the other two bodies found in Conejos County. If you have information about the incident, please call the designated tipline at (719) 270-0210. Over 60 tips have been reported since last month.
