State police: 'Person of interest' still focus of World Cup Owner homicide

Posted

Ray Wilson, a public information officer with New Mexico State Police, said this week that investigators had released no new information regarding the investigation into the death of World Cup Owner Patrick Larkin, but are still looking at a person of interest in connection to the popular business owner's death.

Eighth Judicial District Attorney Marcus Montoya said early this month that investigators had canvassed the neighborhood where Larkin’s body was found in Llano Quemado Aug. 28. He said investigators have interviewed area residents and are processing phone records for more than one person tentatively tied to the investigation.

While state police said in late August that investigators had identified a “person of interest” in Larkin’s death, that person had not been publicly named or charged in connection to the homicide as of press time. Wilson did confirm through investigators that the person being looked at in connection to Larkin's death remains a person of interest in the ongoing investigation.

Taos News has submitted a public information request to the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator for Larkin's cause and manner of death, but those results were still pending as of press time.

Wilson is continuing to check in with investigators for updates. He said new information regarding the investigation would be released as soon as possible.
