A man nicknamed “Psycho” and others face a host of charges after police found human remains belonging to multiple people in a remote part of Colorado.
In late 2020, human remains were found in the San Luis Valley area. Officials charged four people in connection to the human remains found on a property. While only two people have had their remains identified, police say the suspects killed four people.
To date, only the remains of Myron Martinez and Shayla Hammel have been confirmed, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
Adre “Pyscho” Baroz, 27, was previously charged in connection to the remains, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. He was charged with the murders of Martinez, Hammel and Selena Esquibel.
Esquibel’s remains have not been identified.
Additional charges were levied on Baroz this week as he faces counts of first-degree murder and tampering with deceased human Remains related to the murder of Xavier Garcia. Garcia’s remains have not been identified.
An arrest warrant was issued for Francisco Ramirez, 38, on March 8 for three counts of tampering with deceased human remains and accessory after the fact and one count of tampering with physical evidence.
Two other people were previously charged. Julius Anthony Baroz, 31, was charged with first-degree murder and tampering with deceased human remains. C.J. Walter Dominguez, 27, was charged with tampering with deceased human remains, accessory to first-degree murder and second-degree kidnapping.
In November 2020, Conejos County law enforcement and the Colorado Bureau of Investigations jointly executed a search warrant at a property near Los Sauces. They were looking for Baroz, who was wanted for stealing vehicles and equipment, according to KKTV.
During that search, human remains were found on the property. Conejos County Sheriff Garth Crowther told local media they got a task force together and searched a second property nearby and additional human remains were found there.
