Deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office are asking the public’s help in locating an 18-year-old suspect they have identified in a December 2006 murder that occurred on Dunsmere St. SE near Macleay Road SE, south of Salem, Oregon.

Investigations are attempting to find Juan Manual Lopez-Pacheco, a known associate of the Brown Pride Raza (BPR) gang who goes by the nickname of “Pelon”, said Deputy Kevin Rau.
