Fresno County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating 27-year-old Roberto Jose Navarro of Selma. He is wanted in connection with the October 2nd murder of Adan Flores-Rodriguez.
On October 2nd, farmworkers found Flores-Rodriguez's body on a dirt road in an agricultural field, on American south of Cedar. Evidence at the scene led detectives to believe that Flores-Rodriguez had been murdered.
The investigation revealed that earlier that morning, Flores-Rodriguez had gone to the Cherry Auction to sell a pewter colored 2002 Chevy Tahoe. His body was discovered a short time later, however, the vehicle was missing.
On the morning of October 6th, the Flores-Rodriguez's Chevy Tahoe was found in an orchard near the intersection of Academy & Rose Avenues.
Detectives have tied Navarro to the murder, and believe he may have posed as someone wishing to purchase the vehicle at the Cherry Auction.
Navarro is described as being Hispanic, 5' 7" tall, weighing 170 pounds with short black colored hair and brown eyes. Navarro has an unknown type tattoo on his right arm. His last known address was in the 2500 block of Rose Avenue in Selma.
Navarro should be considered Armed & Dangerous.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Navarro is asked to immediately contact the Sheriff’s Office at 488-3112, or CrimeStoppers at 498-STOP(7867).
