EL PASO--- A third person has turned himself in to El Paso County Sheriff's deputies in the cartel-related kidnapping of a Horizon City man last September.

Rafael Vega, 26, turned himself in Saturday morning, said Dep. Jesse Tovar, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

Two days ago, brothers Cesar and Sergio Obregon were also arrested after a Border Patrol agent said he spotted the pair trying to break into a home Wednesday.

It was last September when investigators said Sergio Saucedo was taken from his home in Horizon City at gunpoint.

His mutilated body was found in Juarez a few days later.

A fourth and final suspect is still wanted in the case, said Tovar.

Ricardo Puentes, 25, is accused of being the kidnapping organizer, and is still at large, Tovar said.

Deputies ask the public with knowledge of his whereabouts to call Crimestoppers El Paso at 566-TIPS or write online at
