It was found in Ogden, Utah, and was taken Wednesday to a crime lab in Reno.

Detectives have said they think Filverio-Martinez may have been killed by an unknown assailant in a dispute about a woman.

Filverio-Martinez was from the state of Guerrero, Mexico, and worked at a dairy farm in Gooding, Idaho.

His body was found Feb. 3 along a dirt road off U.S. Highway 93 with four gunshot wounds to the chest.
