Phoenix Police Department detectives have arrested a 21-year-old man as the fourth suspect in the death of Bernardo Pantaleon.

Christopher Ibarra was booked on one count of first-degree murder and one count of assisting a criminal street gang, police said Wednesday.

On Dec. 2, police arrested Leonardo Santiago, 21, Manuel Carrasco Calderon, 21, and 20-year-old Jose Rodriguez in connection with what authorities termed a “brutal killing.

Pantaleon, 30, was found dead Nov. 26 at a park near 7th and Cinnabar avenues, “having suffered from significant bodily trauma,” police said in a release.

“The investigation remains active as detectives continue to process the evidence and following up on leads,” police stated Dec. 6.
