New lead found in Roman murder case
Fugitive's truck located in ATL
A truck sought in connection with the August murder has been located in Atlanta, though the suspect, Porfiro Roman, was still nowhere to be found as of Friday.
Investigators from the Newton County Sheriff’s Department have been looking for 27-yearold Roman since Aug. 23 when neighbors and friends found his estranged wife Carmen Guanchez dead in her Ashley Court home. Autopsy results concluded that the 27year-old mother of two was murdered.
A warrant was issued for Roman’s arrest on charges of murder, aggravated assault, concealing a death and cruelty to children in the second degree but for several weeks investigators were unable to find Roman or his vehicle. With the assistance of the Atlanta Police Department, the white Ford F-150 was located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The vehicle was processed at the
scene and then brought back to Newton County for further inspection.
According to NCSO spokesperson Lt. Bill Watterson, it is their assumption that Roman has left the state.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Porfirio Roman - who also goes by the last name of Guanchez is asked to contact the NCSO at (678) 6251400. Callers can remain anonymous.
Missing owner: The Ford F-150 of fugitive Porfiro Roman was found at the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport. Roman is wanted for the alleged Aug. 23 murder of his wife, Carmen Guanchez.
