The suspect, Greeley, Colorado resident Rodrigo Vigner Turcios-Romero, also known as Yigner Rodrigo Turcios-Romero, fled before deputies arrived, and is believed to have gone back to Colorado.

"Detectives have been in contact with authorities in Colorado and are actively pursuing leads to locate the suspect," Lambing said in a news release.

"An arrest warrant is being processed for Turcios-Romero for charges of Murder in the 2nd Degree," he added.

Anyone with information on Turcios-Romero's whereabouts is asked to call Detective Brownell at 307-633-4769.

Lambing says Turcios-Romero should be considered armed and dangerous and may have attempted to alter his appearance by cutting his hair.
