The Tucson Police Department Homicide Unit has released the name of a man wanted in connection to a homicide investigation from Sunday, Oct. 1.  

A felony warrant has been issued for 43-year-old Mario Jesus Dorame for 1st degree murder, according to a news release from the Tucson Police Department. He is described as a Hispanic male, 5-foot-9, weighing 185 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

The vehicle belongs to homicide victim 52-year-old Maria Escobedo, the woman Dorame was in a relationship with, according to TPD. 

Anyone with information about Dorame or his whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately.  

Escobedo was discovered in a home in the 5500 block of South Tyndall Avenue, after her family asked TPD to conduct a welfare check on Sunday night.
