On Nov. 16, 1991, Attleboro police officers were dispatched to a fight in progress at Dean and Bank streets.
Upon arrival officers located an unconscious male who had been stabbed. The victim was taken to an area hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Detectives with the Attleboro Police Department with the assistance of State Troopers assigned to the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office through their investigation determined that Garcia was the assailant and obtained a warrant for his arrest.
Garcia, who is a native of Guatemala, fled the area and is avoiding apprehension.
He would now be 49 years old and he is described as 5’4” tall, approximately 120 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes.
He has used the aliases Mario Rivera, Rene Agusto Rivera, Mario Rene Garcia Rivera, and Mario Robles.
In addition to his home country, Garcia has ties to Connecticut, Georgia, and Utah.
In addition to the arrest warrant for murder, he is also the subject of a separate arrest warrant for assault and battery for an unrelated incident in Attleboro.
