May 25, 2013

New Mexico State Police say a man found dead inside a Fort Sumner motel last weekend died from blunt force trauma.

They have been investigating the death of 21-year-old Anthony Sandoval since De Baca County Sheriff's deputies discovered the body Sunday at the Coronado Motel.

Investigators say Sandoval and another man had a physical altercation last Friday and Sandoval went back to his motel room.

They say no arrests have been made in the case at this time.
