RPD Asking For Help In Murder Case

RPD Investigators are asking for the public’s help in providing any information related to the homicide of a local man whose body was found March 16 at the city’s southern edge. The body of Robert Francis Sorbo Jr., 31, who had been shot, was discovered by a Chaves County Sheriff’s Office deputy around 6:45 p.m. just south of Roswell Air Center. Sorbo was found lying on the ground near Y O Road, some distance east from Old Y O Crossing Road. The Roswell Police Department assumed the investigation since the body was located within city limits just outside the air center’s perimeter fencing. Anyone with potential information regarding this case is asked to call the Roswell Police Department at (575) 624-6770 or Chaves County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-594-TIPS(8477).
