Jackpot, Nev. • Investigators are testing blood evidence found in a van that belonged to a 26-year-old Mexican man whose body was found in February off a dirt road near the Nevada-Idaho border town of Jackpot.

Elko County Undersheriff Clair Morris tells the Elko Daily Free Press (http://bit.ly/1rp45KW ) the 1996 Ford Windstar with Idaho plates belonged to Leopoldo Filverio-Martinez.

It was found in Ogden, Utah, and was taken Wednesday to a crime lab in Reno.



Detectives have said they think Filverio-Martinez may have been killed by an unknown assailant in a dispute about a woman.

Filverio-Martinez was from the state of Guerrero, Mexico, and worked at a dairy farm in Gooding, Idaho.

His body was found Feb. 3 along a dirt road off U.S. Highway 93 with four gunshot wounds to the chest.
