Moab Police Department Request Assistance in Locating Person of Interest Following Homicide


Moab Police Department Press Release

Early on, October 28, 2018, the Moab City Police Department responded to the trailer court at approximately 250 Walnut Lane after receiving a call of a fight in progress. When officers arrived, they were contacted by a resident and led to a trailer where they discovered an individual deceased from apparent multiple gunshot wounds. The male victim has been identified; however, we are not releasing his name as his next of kin has not been notified.

While multiple individuals were identified as being present at the scene the Moab City Police Department is especially interested in contacting a male Hispanic, approximately 30 years of age who may use the name Martin Armenta Verduzco Lopez, or the street moniker “Omar.” This individual is a person of interest in this homicide and caution should be used if he is located or observed. Information suggests this individual may have left the Moab area traveling to Grand Junction, Colorado. The subject’s information has been transmitted to surrounding states as well as United States Customs and Border Patrol.

The Moab Police Department has been following up on multiple leads throughout the day and has been greatly assisted by agents of the Utah State Bureau of Investigation.

If you have any information, please contact the Moab Police Department at (435) 259-8938.
