In case you hadn't heard, an unidentified Hispanic man had his head cut off over the weekend and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said "see! Told ya so!" OK, so the part about Brewer's not true but a guy really was decapitated and police need the public's help in finding some additional suspects.  

After finding the headless body, Chandler Police arrested Crisantos Moroyoqui in connection with the decapitation.

Chandler Detective Frank Mendoza tells New Times Moroyoqui is not cooperating with police but after canvassing the neighborhood where the murder occurred, police have identified three additional suspects.

As you might have guessed, they have some pretty cool "street" names.

The first suspect is known only as "El Joto." He's described as a Hispanic male, about 5-foot-2. He has a thin build, spikey hair, and a goatee.

That's him below.


The second suspect is Juan Campos Morales Aguilar. He goes by "Isai." He's described as a Hispanic male, about 5-foot-10, and 220 pounds. That's his photo below.


The third suspect, sadly, has no street name. He is 25-year-old Jose David Castro Reyes. He is described as a Hispanic male, about 5-foot-10, 180 pounds. Check him out below.


The three are believed to be traveling in a 2003 Red Ford Expedition with the California license plate 6FWR784.

Mendoza says police are looking into whether the beheading was drug related.

If you know these guys, there's a chance they cut a guy's head off -- so call police.
