Madera Sheriff's Deputies Search For Suspects In "Execution Style" Murder

Posted:

Officials are asking for the public's help in finding two suspects, accused of carrying out Madera County's first murder of the year.

The suspects are said to have carried our an execution style shooting back on January 19th in Chowchilla. The victim, 18-year-old Ivan Torres, was shot in the back of the head and killed at a dairy near Avenue 24 between Road 5 ½ and Road 6.

After exhausting various leads in the investigation Madera County Sheriff John Anderson decided on Wednesday to release a portion of the crime captured on the dairy's video surveillance system. Sheriff Anderson is hoping that releasing the tape may motivate someone to come forward with information in the case.

While authorities don't know the suspects identities, info gathered from the tape have helped them compile a description of the men.

The main suspect is described as wearing a unique sweatshirt that was red, green, and white in color. He is also said to have been carrying a rifle.

The other suspect was said to be wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Officials say they didn't have a lot of evidence to go by, and the rain also washed away some of the evidence at the crime scene.

If you have any information on the suspects, you're asked to call the Madera County Sheriff's department at 559-567-7770 or toll free at 1-800-560-4911. If you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crimestoppers at 498-STOP.
