New Mexico law enforcement officials believe they have a Mexican cartel-related murder on their hands after the death of a man five days after he was discovered shot in Georgetown.

Miguel Cazares Robles, who is originally from Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, succumbed to his injuries on Sunday while in the hospital, where he had been since August 21st after he was discovered on the side of the road and taken to the El Dorado Savings Bank in Georgetown, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The Sheriff’s Office investigation into the murder determined, however, that the actual incident occurred at a marijuana grow near Georgetown believed to have links to a Mexican cartel.

Investigators have identified and published the name of one of the suspects in the homicide as Jesus Martin Munoz Castro, 23, of Sinaloa, Mexico, according to Fox40.

Castro is 5-feet-10-inches tall and 150 pounds, with black hair and blue eyes.

“Detectives are working to identify others involved and it is not believed that Jesus, or the others, are in the area,” Sergeant Anthony Prencipe stated.

Authorities have issued a warrant for Castro’s arrest.
