Family Seeks Help in Finding Suspects in Death of Lesly Palacio

Seven days after a 22-year-old Las Vegas woman was found dead in the desert, the family has asked the community to help find the men suspected in her death.

Family members lit candles spelling out “Lesly” with a heart on the sidewalk corner outside their home on Wednesday night before a press conference. They held up posters and asked for the two men — Erick Rangel-Ibarra, 25, and his father, Jose Rangel, 45 — to be found.

Aracely Palacio, the mother of Lesly Palacio, stood between her cousin and the family’s lawyer, Ofelia Markarian.

Markarian said the family is grateful to the Metropolitan Police Department for its assistance in the investigation, but the family is asking for the public’s support.

“We do not know who the next victim is going to be,” she said.

Lesly Palacio was found dead near Valley of Fire State Park on Sept. 9, 11 days after she was last seen outside the Longhorn hotel-casino, less than 2 miles from her mother’s home.

A warrant was issued for Rangel-Ibarra on charges of open murder and destroying/concealing evidence. Rangel is sought on charges of destroying/concealing evidence and harboring, concealing or aiding a felony offender.
