ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – State police have arrested a murder suspect in Albuquerque.
Earlier this week, Santa Fe Police issued a missing person alert for 20-year-old Daniel Gisler. After receiving several tips, police searched three different homes in Santa Fe, later finding Gisler’s remains along with his car.
Detectives then identified 26-year-old James Garcia as the murder suspect. Earlier Saturday morning, a state police officer found a car connected to Garcia parked in Albuquerque. The car led police on a chase, even leading to one officer receiving minor injuries, before getting caught.
Garcia, along with the driver, 27-year-old Mercardy Montoya, were arrested. The details on the murder investigation are still unclear, but Garcia faces an open count of murder.
