Police gather new information for unsolved homicide

HEWITT -

After identifying one body left for dead in the woods, Hewitt Police say they may have new valuable information for an unsolved homicide. On January 8th, police identified John Doe number one as Erasmo Guillien-Ruiz of Dallas.

Since then police have spoken to Guillien-Ruiz's family. They say information from their conversations may now give them an idea of where to look next.

"We have done several interviews with close family members kinda to get an idea where Mr. Guillien-Ruiz had been. When was the last time he had contact with any person he may know," Hewitt Police Chief James Devlin said.

They say from their conversations, the family now has closure, but it has opened more doors for investigators.

"It points us in directions that four or five months ago we didn't have," Devlin said. "Just like any investigation, you start knuckling down and getting into the details of it of course it is going to point us in directions we didn't even know."

Police say they have more things to check, and they still have not identified John Doe number two yet.

"We are still working on Mr. Guillien-Ruiz's death, it's a homicide. We are still trying to find out facts related to that. At the same time we are still trying to identify John Doe number two," Devlin said. "Now, it depends on what order that comes in. Either or, we are not going to stop on either one of them.

Anyone with any information about the homicide is asked to call Hewitt Police.
