RIO RANCHO, N.M. – Officials at the Sandoval County Sheriff's Office say they are investigating a burned body found near Northern and Encino in northwest Rio Rancho Saturday – one that is so badly disfigured they are struggling to identify the gender.
Lt. Keith Elder says the body was found sometime Saturday afternoon.
The incident is being investigated as a suspicious death, Elder said. It's unclear if they are looking for a suspect or suspects at this time, but the lieutenant added that if anyone has a missing family member, they should file a report with local authorities.
