From the Las Vegas Review Journal website (reviewjournal.com):
Police have obtained arrest warrants for a man and his father in the death of a 22-year-old Las Vegas woman, who was found slain near Valley of Fire State Park a week ago, according to court records.
Lesly Palacio was last seen Aug. 29 by family when she went to get drinks with Erick Rangel-Ibarra, 25. Her body was found last week in Moapa Valley near Valley of Fire State Park.
Police said after the discovery that they were pursuing a warrant for Rangel-Ibarra and that he and his father, Jose Rangel, 45, were missing.
Las Vegas Justice Court records now show a warrant was obtained for Rangel-Ibarra on charges of open murder and destroying/concealing evidence. His father is the subject of an arrest warrant as well. That warrant, issued Monday, charges Rangel with destroying/concealing evidence and harboring, concealing or aiding a felony offender.
The Metropolitan Police Department on Tuesday denied a Review-Journal records request for the arrest warrants, citing the open investigation.
Palacio, Rangel-Ibarra and his father were all reported missing, and Metro on Sept. 1 published separate news releases regarding the disappearances. The department has also declined requests for all three missing persons reports.
Police said both men were last seen in a white 2004 Ford F-150 pickup with a Nevada plate of LVN84A.
Rangel-Ibarra is about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighs about 173 pounds, and has brown eyes and black hair. He has a tattoo on his ear of California, a tattoo on his chest of a skull, and a tattoo on his left wrist of a “Dragon Ball Z image,” police said.
Anyone with information may contact Metro at 702-828-3521 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
Thoughts? It would seem that both Erick and his father are unfortunately still at large as of today's posting date (September 17th, 2020) since I found a "Justice for Lesly Palacio" Facebook page that is constantly providing updates in trying to get justice: m.facebook.com/groups/428569998117441/
UPDATE: Jose Rangel was arrested crossing the U.S. Mexico border in January 2021. Erick Rangel-Ibarra was said to still be at large at least as of February 12th, 2021
