Investigators discovered that Valdivinos was shot and killed by 41-year-old John Reyna after an argument arose during the party.

Reyna and the host of the party, 36-year-old Joe Trejo, were arrested. Trejo assisted in removing and burying the victim’s body.

Investigators later arrested 58-year-old Pete Reyna and charged him with accessory after the fact.

The Hanford Police Department is currently looking for 37-year-old Mark Valdivia and are requesting the public’s assistance in finding him. Law enforcement believes Valdivia “could have information that helps them understand what happened that night.”
