Sheriff's Department releases details in a Guadalupe homicide

BY SUN STAFF

At approximately 6:50 a.m. on Aug. 19, a group of field workers discovered the body of a heavy-set man on the side of the road, face down in the dirt, near the entrance to Rancho Guadalupe Beach.

It was 37-year-old Javier Alcantar Limon of Santa Maria. Guadalupe police and fire personnel joined the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department in responding to the scene, determining that Limon was dead. His death is considered to be the result of a homicide.

The Sheriff’s Office released more information on Aug. 25, saying that the medical examiner determined Limon died from multiple gunshot wounds.

“Due to the active investigation, no further information is being released at this time,” the press release says, encouraging anyone who has information regarding the case to call the sheriff’s anonymous tip-line, 681-4171.
