THE DALLES, Ore. – Police have named a suspect in the beating death of a man who was found in a Fred Meyer parking lot in The Dalles Sunday night.
Carlos Alberto Medina, 20, is wanted in connection with Mark Anthony Labonte’s death.
Labonte was found in the parking lot at around 9 p.m., according to police. He was taken by LifeFlight from Mid-Columbia Medical Center to OHSU in Portland, where he died from blunt force trauma to his head early Monday morning.
It’s unclear if Medina and Labonte knew each other.
Waterbury said there is no indication that Labonte's death is related to the death of Scott Erlenbush, who was killed in a parking lot in The Dalles last month.
Police ask anyone who sees Medina or knows where he is to call 911.
