    Hanford Police dig up the body of a 34-year-old homicide victim from NYE

    The body of a man that has been missing since New Year's Day body has been dug up in Hanford, police confirm.

    On Jan. 1, family members reported that Salvador Valdavinos, 34, had gone to a party the night before in the 200 block of East Third Street in Hanford and did not return.

    The family told police several suspicious things popped up, leading them to believe something bad had happened to Valdavinos.

    A missing person investigation found that Valdavinos had been shot several times at the party.

    Multiple search warrants were issued, witnesses were interviewed, leading police identify John Anthony Reyna, 41, as a suspect in the murder of Valdavinos.

    Police say the two were involved in an argument during the new year's eve party.

    Investigators found Valdavinos' body in a four-foot deep grave in a field at the southeast corner of Ninth Avenue and Hanford Armona Road around 3 a.m. on Jan. 5.

    Another man, Joe Trejo, 36, was detained by officers during a traffic stop and was arrested on Jan. 4.

    The two men were booked Friday afternoon at the Kings County Jail on homicide charges, according to the Kings County inmate locator. Both are accused of murder, and Trejo of removing human remains and intimidating a witness. Both are accused of being in a gang, according to the website.

    Victim name spelling in this article is Valdovinos, which I think is accurate.
    Note: previous post #1 above, and thread title, has 'a' instead of 'o' - Valdavinos

    Police make arrest in murder case, search for additional suspect
    Apr 22, 2019
    HANFORD — The Hanford Police Department and the Kings County Major Crimes Task Force have arrested Pete Reyna as an alleged accessory in the January murder case of Salvador Valdovinos, officials said.

    An arrest warrant was issued for Reyna, 58, on Friday after authorities said they received multiple tips in regards to his involvement in the homicide. He was arrested in the city of Hanford.

    In addition to Reyna, police said 37-year-old Mark Valdivia of Hanford, aka Scoobs or Mark Tafolla, is still wanted for questioning in connection with the killing of Valdovinos.

    On Jan. 1, HPD and the Kings County Major Crimes Task Force learned of the disappearance of Valdovinos following a New Year’s Eve party. Investigators recovered his body on Jan. 5 from a shallow grave near Hanford-Armona Road and 9th Avenue.
    [...]
    Officials subsequently arrested John Reyna and 36-year-old Joe Trejo — the host of the party who allegedly helped Reyna transport Valdovinos’ body to the burial location — in connection with the slaying of Valdovinos.

    Pete Reyna was arrested Friday on suspicion of accessory to murder and booked into the Kings County Jail, officers said.

    Investigators said they are now requesting any information on the whereabouts of Mark Valdivia.
