Police are searching for a 57-year-old Cheyenne man suspected of killing his girlfriend.

Officer Kevin Malatesta says police were called to 620 Central Avenue around 11:45 a.m. this (Monday) morning.

"When officers arrived there they found the victim, who was a 21-year-old female," said Malatesta. "We're withholding her name until her family can be notified."

"They determined that she was the victim of a homicide and after reviewing some surveillance footage and some other evidence there were able to determine that Emigdio Lara is the suspect," he added.

Lara, who was seen on surveillance camera wearing a red sweater with a dark stripe on the front, is 5-foot-10, weighs about 200 pounds and has blue eyes and brown hair.

Anyone who knows Lara’s whereabouts is asked to call the dispatch center at (307) 637-6525.
