Possible Locations: Patrick Abeyta has been sighted in Juarez, Mexico, Chihuahua, Mexico as well as in New Mexico.
On the morning of April 1st, 1996 members of the Denver Fire Department
responded to a house fire within a residence located near the intersection of
West 1st Avenue and Xavier Street. After extinguishing the blaze, the body of a
female, later identified as Grace Espinoza, was discovered. Upon closer
examination by the responding Medical Examiner from the Denver Coroner’s
Office, it was determined that Grace Espinoza had been stabbed to death.
During the follow-up investigation by the Denver Police Department’s Homicide

was identified as the suspect responsible for Grace Espinoza’s death.
Currently, a warrant for Patrick Abeyta’s arrest has been issued for Investigation

Additional information from the Denver Post says that Grace had her hands bound behind her back and that she had been stabbed 40 times. Grace was also beaten and strangled.

Thoughts? Patrick Abeyta sounds like an extremely scary fugitive based on the sheer brutality of Grace Espinoza's murder. The good news is that we know that he's probably in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, where cold-case FBI Top Tenner Fidel Urbina was just captured in. That gives me hope that Patrick Abeyta will someday be in custody as well.
