Police catch man found with body, no charges filed

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The man seen running from a truck with a body inside Friday night has been caught, but at this point, he is not facing charges.

Torrance County deputies were on patrol near Ballenger Ranch in Moriarty when they saw a man and a truck near some trees.

The man took off running and that’s when they found the body.

Deputies say they have now located the man, but at this point, they don’t know if this is a homicide, so they can’t charge him with anything.

Investigators are waiting on a cause of death from OMI.

The name of the man taken into custody has not been released.
