ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – A person of interest in the murder of a Roswell man found buried in a backyard last month has been arrested, but not for murder.
Antonio Romero has been arrested on a probation violation.
He has been identified as a person of interest in the death of 19-year-old Miguel Castillo.
Castillo vanished in October. His body was found buried in a shallow grave in the backyard of an abandoned Roswell home.
Castillo’s family says he vanished on the way to a job interview.
At this point, Romero is not charged in the case and police aren’t saying what his connection to Castillo is.
