ARLINGTON — The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's office has identified a victim found dead in a car in the Arlington Haggen parking lot on March 28.
The victim was identified as Leonardo Torres-Angel, 21, of Marysville. Torres-Angel died of a gunshot wound to the head, officials say, and his death was ruled a homicide on April 2.
Mount Vernon police are currently searching for a second subject, who is a person of interest in the case. They arrested a 28-year-old Mount Vernon man on March 28, in connection with Torres-Angel's murder.
"The first suspect that was arrested lived at the Anderson Road home and the last time the victim was seen was with him at that home," said MVPD Lt. Chris Cammock, who noted that the initial call to police came from a home on Anderson Road in Mount Vernon on March 25. "With the evidence that we collected we think that the incident happened in Mount Vernon and that the victim was transported to Arlington."
Torres-Angel's body was found in the passenger seat of a white two-door vehicle that officials believe was owned by one of his friends.
