The third man accused of kidnapping a man from Pueblo, killing him, and dumping the body in Colorado Springs will have his day in court Wednesday.

Gustave Dreyer, 38, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant for first degree murder. Xavier Rubalcaba-Lopez, 26, of Colorado Springs, and Alfredo Velazquez, 44, of Pueblo, were arrested earlier last month on similar charges.

Jeremy Naranjo's body was found January 9 beside a road in the Springs, just a few hours after he was taken at gunpoint from his home at 2145 Hellbeck Drive in Pueblo.

Rubalcaba-Lopez, who also goes by the name Alan Rocha Armijo, was taken into custody on January 10 after he provided false information to an officer during a traffic stop in Colorado Springs. Police say he is also a previously-deported felon from Mexico.

Detectives obtained a warrant relating to Naranjo's murder and formally arrested Rubalcaba-Lopez on that charge on January 18.

Velazquez was arrested at his home in Pueblo on January 17.

According to the district attorney's office, formal charges were filed recently against Rubalcaba-Lopez and Velazquez. Those charges include felony murder, murder after deliberation and kidnapping.

A fourth suspect, Miguel Angel Hernandez Moran, 20, is still wanted on the charge of being an accessory to the murder.

Moran also goes by the nickname “Gordo.” He is a Hispanic male, approximately 5-foot-10 and weighs 220 pounds. He reportedly spends time in both Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

Anyone with information regarding this crime or the whereabouts of Moran is urged to contact the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7000, Pueblo Police Investigations at 719-553-2408, or you may remain anonymous and could earn a cash reward by contacting Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 719-542-STOP (7867) or Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers in Colorado Springs at 719-634-STOP (7867).
