Clovis, NM: The Ninth Judicial District Attorney’s Office announced today that the hit FOX television show “Americas Most Wanted” is now assisting local law enforcement in locating fugitive Noe Torres. Noe Torres is wanted in New Mexico for acting as an Accessory to the First Degree Murder of 10 year-old Carlos Perez. The incident occurred on September 15, 2005, when Noe Torres allegedly went with Edward Salas, Demetrio Salas, David Griego to an apartment complex in Clovis and assisted in firing several gunshots through a window in an attempt to murder a 17 year old boy. However, one of the bullets struck Carlos in the head killing him. Torres has been wanted ever since and has eluded law enforcement for almost 3 years. All other aforementioned subjects have been convicted of Murder.
“Americas Most Wanted” will feature Torres as the lead story on their homepage website at www.amw.com beginning at noon today (MST) and Torres will remain the lead story through Saturday. After Saturday, Torres will remain featured in the “Americas Most Wanted Fugitive” section of the website until he is apprehended.
On Tuesday, June 10th, Torres telephoned law enforcement officials and talked with them for some time demanding his murder charge be dismissed so he can move on with his life. Ninth Judicial District Attorney’s Special Agent Dan Aguilar said, “Noe Torres advised us that he is tired of running from us, but Noe must realize that there is only one way to resolve this situation and that means turning himself in to police. All parties involved want justice, which equates to the truth and to get this accomplished due process must run its course. Let it be known, until Noe Torres is apprehended we in law enforcement will never call off our search for him.”
