Police trying to identify body found buried in Roswell

ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say they have located and released a person of interest in the murder of a Roswell woman found buried in a back yard.

The body was discovered Wednesday on Greenbrier Drive near Washington.

Police say they now know the victim was female who investigators believe was killed six to 18 months ago. They say she had piercings in each cheek and several tattoos, including a tiger face, Spongebob, and a word or name that beings with “guer.”

Police questioned 56-year-old Richard Martinez-Sanchez in connection to the homicide and say he is no longer a person of interest.

If you have any information, call Roswell police.
