ABBEVILLE, AL (WSFA) -- It may be quiet now but police say the scene outside the #22 lot in Roberts Trailer Park in Abbeville was anything but quiet last week.

Investigators say it was just after 10:15pm on March 23rd when they believe Victor Sanchez was robbed and killed by 27 year old Victor Solorzano and Sanchez's brother-in-law, 28 year old Robby Burns.  

Police still have no body and only two suspects in custody.

"Victor Solorzano and Robby Burns are on the run and possibly in Mexico," says Investigator Tim Ingram with the Abbeville Police Department.

Police arrested the victim's wife,  Jessica Lynn Wilson, and his mother-in-law Tamara Burns Wilson.

And as rain continues to hammer Abbeville, investigators are coming up dry in their search for Sanchez's body.  

Police say when the weather clears up they'll continue their search for the victim.   But with the threat of rain still looming, it could be a few days before they get back out. That's why they're asking residents for help.

"We encourage the public that have any information leading to the whereabouts of these two suspects or the victim to please call the Abbeville Police Department or the Henry County Sheriff's Department," says Ingram.

All four suspects face capital murder charges.   Police say the altercation began after reports of verbal and physical abuse between the victim and his wife.
