Police FBI Searching for Suspect in Mineral Wells Boy Death

The search is on for a man wanted in the death of a four year old Mineral Wells boy. The Mineral Wells Police Department was called to the 700 block of SW 4th Ave. Friday morning.

The boy was allegedly abducted from his home. Police called in the FBI who joined in the investigation. That investigation led law enforcement to 23 year old Arturo Pacheco-Barrera.

Police say Pacheco-Barrera voluntarily responded to questioning, which led them to the body. Swat team members found the body in an abandoned building in the 3600 block of US 281.

As officers attempted to retrieve more evidence from a third location, the suspect fled. Eighty law enforcement officers from multiple agencies assisted in the search for Pacheco-Barrera. But he is still free and the investigation continues.
