PRESS RELEASE – UPDATE
Crime/Offense : 187 PC - Murder
Suspect : Daniel Albert Robleto (11-26-62)
The Colusa County District Attorney’s Office has elected to prosecute Daniel Alberto Robeleto for the murder of Paradise resident Lisa Marie Madrid. An earlier press release had stated that the Butte County District Attorney would be handling the prosecution.
As has been reported, on June 29, 2017, Ms. Madrid was located deceased on Harbison Road in Colusa County. Suspect Daniel Alberto Robeleto was later arrested in Lake County driving Ms. Madrid’s vehicle. Paradise Police Officers and Colusa County law enforcement personnel located additional evidence in this case in both Butte County and Lake County.
Colusa County District Attorney Matthew R. Beauchamp stated: “I understand the reasons why the Paradise Police Department wished to proceed with prosecution in Butte County.” “However, my main reason for proceeding in Colusa County is logistical. Because of the location of the body in Colusa County, the physical evidence obtained, and the extensive investigation performed by Colusa County law enforcement in three counties, the appropriate location to venue the case is Colusa County” Beauchamp said.
