ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque Police are looking for a man they say stabbed his neighbor to death at a gas station Tuesday morning.
Ricardo Villanueva-Cordova is accused of attacking his 27-year-old neighbor Michael Sanchez.
"It was evident that he had sustained numerous stab wounds," Officer Robert Gibbs said.
Sanchez was pumping gas when he was stabbed to death.
APD said Villanueva-Cordova is on the run, possibly headed for Mexico.
Investigators say the men are neighbors at the Long View Mobile Home Park on Central near 98th Street, just a few blocks away from the Valero Gas Station.
"Our victim had been at the offender's house this morning complaining about the dog barking was upset and yelling and then he left," said Gibbs.
Villanueva-Cordova's family told officers that he and Sanchez had an on-going feud over the dog.
They said after Sanchez left their place Tuesday morning they heard the dog yelping, then found the dog had been hurt, possibly run over.
"They're presuming that it could be our victim possibly that did it but that's unknown right now," Gibbs said.
Officers say the suspect was able to track Sanchez down to the gas station where he attacked him.
According to the criminal complaint Villanueva-Cordova's girlfriend told police he called her and confessed to the killing saying, "I stabbed and killed somebody, the neighbor ran over the dog."
One of the neighbors in the trailer park told KRQE News 13 she did not know anything about an on-going feud but that her dog was run over and killed there a few months ago.
