Ricardo Tiscareno Hernandez

Investigators with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office are continuing to search for a 28-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing and shooting a man in late 2020.

The Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers took to Facebook on Monday to ask for the public’s help in finding Ricardo Tiscareno Hernandez, who is wanted on a charge of murder for the Sept. 2, 2020, killing of 27-year-old Alfredo Sandoval.

Hernandez has been on the run since that day when deputies responded to the 100 block of West Huisache Street in rural Sullivan City about 2:19 p.m. in reference to a disturbance.

“Upon arrival, deputies met with Sullivan City Police Officers who had located a truck with traces of dry blood on the interior of the vehicle and confirmed the victim, Alfredo Sandoval, had been transported to the hospital,” stated a news release at the time.

Authorities previously said Hernandez is the suspect and that investigators believed at the time that he fled to Mexico.
