The friends and family of Lesly Palacio held a march in Las Vegas, near the Longhorn Casino, on Friday to honor Lesly and remind police and Nevada residents that the men they believe killed her are still at large.We will continue to update the case as we get new information.
The family of Lesly Palacio held a press conference to call on Las Vegas Metro Police to continue their investigation into her death. The family and their attorney thanked the police for their efforts to date, but insisted that Lesly’s killers were still at large and posed a grave threat to the people of Las Vegas.While not specifically naming Jose Rangel or Erick Rangel-Ibarra, the family held up the wanted poster of the two men, suspected of committing the murder.
This case begins in Las Vegas on August 29th. Lesly Palacio, is 22-year-old woman who lives in Las Vegas. On the evening of August 28th, she receives a call from a family friend named Erick Rangel-Ibarra. Erick wants to meet up with Lesly at the Longhorn Casino in Las Vegas to get something to eat. So Erick picks up Lesly around midnight and we can see on the casino’s security footage that they arrive in Erick’s White 2004 Ford F-150 pick-up truck around 12:31am on the 29th in the property’s West Parking Lot. t almost 90 minutes seated at the table, eating and talking. We can see here that it appears as though Lesly is holding a white bag, possibly a container of leftovers. They appear to chat a bit near his truck in the parking lot for a few seconds, and then they both get into the truck. And that is the last time that Lesly or Erick are seen.
