New information in a murder case that happened exactly one year ago.

The murder victim was 21-year-old Linda Trevino Carbajal, a woman who once told NewsChannel 11 she had hopes of leaving prostitution.

"I really want to better myself not only for me, but for my daughter and my grandmother cause uh, life is too short, you know," said Carbajal, in a 2003 interview.

But, on April 19, 2004 Carbajal's body was found on a county road near New Deal. She died from blunt force trauma to the head.

We talked to Sgt. Greg Parrot with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office and he says the suspect they are looking for is Hispanic. Authorities also believe that same suspect is linked to the 2003 murder of Cynthia Palacio. Her body was found west of Slaton.

Investigators encourage anyone with information on either case to call the Sheriff's Department at 775-1480. Callers can remain anonymous and there is a reward for information that leads to an arrest.
