Bookmark and Share

Police have identified a Sioux City, Iowa, man whose body was found in a roadside ditch in Lincoln County.
   
Sioux City police Lt. Mark Kirkpatrick says 20-year-old Adrian Rojas Hernandez, of Sioux City, was killed by a single gunshot to the head.

Kirkpatrick says they are currently looking for a suspect in the homicide that occurred early Sunday morning at 1420 West 15th in Sioux City.

He says in a news release, the Sioux Falls Police Department reported the discovery of a body that was in a fire in the ditch along 281st St. between Highway 115 and Highway 11 in Lincoln County.

They say an accomplice to the murder admitted the death occurred in Sioux City and the body was transported to the Sioux Falls area.

Kirkpatrick says the motive and details of the shooting are still under investigation.

Sioux City Chief Doug Young said he believes this is an isolated incident because the suspects and victim knew each other.

22-year-old Ricardo Jaime Vital of Sioux City has been arrested and charged as an Accessory after the Fact.

Police are looking for 20-year-old Martin Castellanos.

Castellanos is a Hispanic male, who is 5'8" and weighs 180 pounds.

He may have a light mustache.

He may be driving a silver 2003 Audi A4 with Iowa plate 892YSD.

Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at 605-
764-5651 or Crimestoppers at 1-877-367-7007 or leave a tip at www.crimestopperssiouxempire.com.
