The remains in a missing persons case has been identified as Xavier Zeven Garcia (DOB: 07/06/1996) of Saguache and a past resident of Crestone.

An arrest warrant was also issued for Francisco Ramirez for three counts of tampering with deceased human remains and accessory after the fact, and one count of tampering with physical evidence in connection with the homicides of Xavier Zeven Garcia as well as Myron Robert Martinez of Del Norte, and Selena Esquibel of Alamosa.
