Paso Robles police go to Modesto area searching for murder suspects 

Suspects sought in the murder of Victor Hugo Sanchez

Paso Robles police officers went to town outside of Modesto this week looking for suspects in the March 23, 2013 murder of Paso Robles resident Victor Hugo Sanchez.

Waterford Middle School, located in Waterford, CA, was locked down temporarily Thursday afternoon when the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Paso Robles Police Department in a search for homicide suspects, the Modesto Bee reports.

Police have been searching for three Modesto teenagers wanted for the shooting death of 37-year-old Sanchez, who authorities say was targeted by his jilted ex-girlfriend. Police are seeking Edgar Ontiveros, 18, Louis Henry Madrigal, 19, and Alejandro Anguiano, 19. Police say Sanchez’s ex-girlfriend, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo, hired the men, along with David Rodriguez Hernandez, 37, of Ceres, to kidnap and beat her ex boyfriend for $8,000. Authorities believe Hernandez fled to Mexico but continue to search in the United States for the Modesto teenagers.

Paso Robles Police Lt. Tim Murphy the the Modesto Bee that officers were in Waterford searching for one of the suspects at his father’s home, which prompted the lockdown of the middle school. When the suspect’s father saw police he tried to run because he thought he had a warrant, Murphy said, but he did not. None of the suspects were located.
