Anaheim Police Department homicide detectives are asking for help finding Anaheim resident Humberto Rodriguez-Martinez, a suspect in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend.
Officials have issued an arrest warrant for Rodriguez-Martinez, 30, who police say was jealous of his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend, Los Angeles resident Daniel Reyes, 32.

Exactly a week after the murder, Rodriguez-Martinez’s tan Toyota Corolla was found in San Diego, and officials believe he is in the San Diego area.
A reward up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
