Person of interest in murder arrested

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. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
