Arrest Made Connected to Death of 3-year-old Ulysses Child

Joe Denoyer - February 25, 2020 1:23 pm

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) and the Ulysses Police Department made an arrest related to the February 2019 death of a 3-year-old Ulysses child.

 

On Monday, Feb. 24, at approximately 8:30 p.m., 26-year-old Uraquio “Rocky” A. Arredondo, was arrested at his home of 955 S. Cheyenne in Ulysses, Kan. Arredondo was arrested for first degree murder and abuse of a child. He was booked into the Grant County Jail on $500,000 bond.

 

The arrest follows a yearlong investigation by the KBI and the Ulysses Police Department into the death of 3-year-old Carlos Valenzuela III. On Feb. 26, 2019, police and EMS were dispatched to the child’s home after they received a 911 call reporting an unresponsive child. Valenzuela was first transported to Bob Wilson Memorial Hospital and was then transferred to a Denver, Colo. hospital for treatment. He died Feb. 27, 2019 in Denver. Arredondo was in a relationship with child’s mother.

 

The Grant County Attorney will prosecute the case. Any further inquiries should be directed to the County Attorney’s Office.
