Authorities think they've found slaying suspect's truck

LAND O'LAKES

Abandoned truck linked To slaying suspect

A pickup believed to be owned by Justo Arturo Moreno-Gonzalez, wanted in a recent Land O'Lakes slaying, turned up in Texas near the Mexican border, sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said. The abandoned truck was discovered in the town of Alamo on May 4, the same day the body of Diane Yeager-Lombard was found on the front porch of her Bahia Loop home. She had been shot. A few days earlier, Yeager-Lombard, 51, had filed a harassment complaint against Moreno-Gonzalez, saying that he started out doing odd jobs for her around her property but began showing up uninvited. She thought he had romantic feelings for her. Doll said a grand jury has indicted Moreno-Gonzalez, and sheriff's deputies are now working with federal immigration officials to begin the process of finding and bringing him back. He is believed to be in Mexico.

  2. Five ideas for cooking with ground turkey

    Cooking
