Family members hold march for Lesly Palacio

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Family and friends gathered Friday night to remember the woman whose body was found in the desert just over a week ago. Family members organized a march in honor of Lesly Palacio, whose body was found near the Valley of Fire State Park last week.

Earlier this week, Palacio’s family held a press conference, asking for the public and Metro to not forget about Lesly. They implored the police to continue the investigation until Lesly’s killers were brought to justice.

The search is still ongoing for 25-year-old Erick Rangel-Ibarra and 45-year-old Jose Antonio Rangel — the father and son connected to Palacio’s death.  

According to court records, Erick Rangel-Ibarra is facing a charge of open murder, along with charges for destroying/concealing evidence.
