Felony murder warrant issued for Bullhead City woman

CREATED Sep. 26, 2013

Bullhead City, AZ (KTNV) -- A nationwide felony warrant has been issued for 35-year-old Nora Yesenia Sandoval of Bullhead City, Ariz.

Police believe Sandoval is connected to the murder of 36-year-old Raymond Sanchez in 2011.

Sanchez's body was found wrapped in plastic shower curtains near the entrance of the Colorado River Nature Center. He had been stabbed more than 80 times.

Police said Sandoval, who was a known local drug dealer, blamed Sanchez for stealing a large amount of methamphetamine.

Police also said she bought shower curtains and cleaning supplies on the day that Sanchez was killed.

42-year-old Chase Robert Salveson was arrested in September 2013 for his alleged role in the crime.

Salveson's DNA was found on the duct tape that was used to wrapped Sanchez' body.

Sandoval has been on the run for a year after she failed to appear for a trial connected to drug sales.

She is now being charged with first degree murder and conspiracy to commit first degree murder.

Anyone with information on Sandoval's location is asked to call Detective Brandon Grasse at (928) 763-92 ext. 788.
