FBI Increases Reward for Information in Taos Pueblo Homicides

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the 2019 homicides of a father and son on Taos Pueblo.

The bodies of Antonio “Tony” Romero, 82, and Buck Romero, 51, both members of Taos Pueblo, were found in Buck Romero’s residence on June 1, 2019.

The previous FBI reward was $5,000.

“Working with the Taos Pueblo Department of Public Safety, our agents have received numerous tips and interviewed scores of people,” Special Agent in Charge Raul Bujanda of the Albuquerque FBI Division said. “We know someone has the missing piece that will allow us to solve this puzzle and bring justice to the Romero family. We hope that person will come forward soon.”

The cause of death is not being released.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (505) 889-1300 or use the online form at tips.fbi.gov.
