Police profile suspect wanted for salon owner's murder
Guam - The Guam Police Department is calling on the community for help in their search for a man wanted for questioning in connection to a murder that occurred in Tamuning over one month ago. A piece of plywood boards up a portion of the front door to Hair Plus By Nick in Tamuning: the grisly site where the salon's owner Nick Tolentino was founded murdered.
Many of his neighbors are still in shock. "We together for 11 years already, he's very good guy," said
Today a statue of Jesus and a single white rose lays on the same floor where 62-year old Tolentino was found laying in a pool of his own blood. Since his murder over a month ago police have been conducting their investigation and according to police spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia they need your help. They released this sketch of a man detectives want for questioning in connection to the homicide. He is described as standing between 5'8" to 5'10" weighing between 140-150 pounds, a skinny frame, with a dark complexion, short black hair and drives a dark colored sedan.
"Based on information this person may or may not be a person of interest but they would like to find out who this individual is and question him on regards to whether or not he has information on that case," said Balajadia.
According to the autopsy Tolentino died from multiple stab wounds. As we reported the day before he was found dead, nearby businesses said there were about five to six people sitting on the ground across from the beauty salon consuming alcohol. One of the business owners we talk with today says the sketch looks familiar. "I know a customer like this before but we are thinking young people," the acquaintance said,
If you have any information you are urged to call the Guam Police Department at 475-8615/6/7 or Guam Crime Stoppers at 477-4357.
