SAN ANTONIO - The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in identifying two people who may be connected to the murder of Norma Pacheco.

Around 3 p.m. on April 4, deputies went to the 13000 block of State Highway 211 near Government Canyon State Natural Area where a passerby found "badly burned, badly decomposed" remains of a woman.

In mid-June, the Bexar County Medical Examiner identified the remains as Pacheco, 39. During that time, Sheriff Javier Salazar said they received a break in the case after several tips were sent to investigators.

It is unclear whether those tips led deputies to obtain the images of the two persons of interest.

Pacheco's daughter, Lori Cantu, said she remembers the last time she saw her mother.

"She was going to work and she left my house to my grandmother's. And from my grandmother's, that was it. The last time I saw her was from March 21 to March 22," Cantu said.

Cantu, who is the oldest of three children, is hoping the persons of interest in her mother's case are identified and found so that she and her family can have closure.

"My daughter asks for my mom every day (and) my nephew asks for my mom every day. They break down on their own...it's heartbreaking," Cantu said.

Anyone with information who may recognize the two people in the images is asked to call the tip to Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP or 800-252-8477.
