ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Bernalillo County Sheriff’s officials say they’ve identified the body of a dead man that had been set on fire near the Cibola Campground.
They say the body of 56-year-old Terry Williams was found last Friday.
Authorities say he was reported missing three days earlier by family members.
Sheriff’s detectives are trying to locate Williams’ vehicle and identity two persons of interest seen on surveillance footage at the victim’s home hours after he was reported missing.
They say the medical examiner’s office has confirmed the identity of the body.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a deceased, unidentified person and say the body was burned and unidentifiable by first responders.
Authorities say the cause of Williams’ death is not being released at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
