Baros is being held for investigation of first-degree murder, first-degree assault and second-degree kidnaping. Court documents in the case have been sealed.

Baroz was identified as a suspect in the case on Wednesday. The remains were found on two properties in the Los Sauces — or Lasauses — area of Conejos County between Nov. 10 and Nov. 13.

Authorities have not said how they connected Baroz to the remains. The victims have not been identified and police have not said how the people died.

Investigators have found no indication they will discover more remains as part of the case.
