Authorities on Saturday identified one of three sets of human remains discovered last month in the San Luis Valley as a missing Del Norte man.
The remains of Myron Robert Martinez, who would have turned 38 on Nov. 15, were found on a property in Conejos County near the town of Sanford. Martinez was reported missing on Nov. 6, but hadn’t been in contact with his family since October.
Martinez was identified with the help of a forensic odontologist, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
Adre Jordan Baroz, also known as Psycho, was arrested in connection with the remains’ discovery. The 26-year-old is accused of first-degree murder, assault and kidnapping and was taken into custody after a manhunt that ended in Gallup, New Mexico.
Police have declined to release details on the case, or how they tied Baroz to the remains, citing the fact that a judge has sealed the case records.
Baroz has not been charged specifically in Martinez’s death.
Authorities say they don’t know how Martinez died, but that they believe foul play was involved.
The remains of the two others have not been identified. The CBI did not provide an update on the process of identifying the remaining two victims.
