Las Vegas police cordoned off a large area around Sabino, South Pacific and Chavez streets late Sunday afternoon after a body was discovered in a vehicle in the area.
Chief Christian Montaño said Monday that the deceased man was identified as Juan Luis Gallegos, 33, of Chacon in Mora County.
The body was taken to the Office of the Medical Investigator in Albuquerque for an autopsy, though Montaño said foul play isn’t suspected at this point.
The body was found in an alley on the 600 block of Chavez Street, he said.
