Glen Ellyn police are still searching for the ex-husband of a woman found slain in her apartment Oct. 16, but believe a person of interest is now in Mexico.

Police spokesman Bill Holmer said Juan Granados, 33, the only person of interest police have identified in the homicide investigation, is believed to be in Mexico. Granados may be the last person to see Nancy Bustos, 36, alive, Holmer added.

“At this point, he’s the person we’re looking to talk to,” Holmer said.

Granados was last seen driving a black, four-door 1992 BMW 325i with Illinois license plate L655003.

Meanwhile, officials have not released an official cause of death for Bustos because the investigation is ongoing, said DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office Spokesman Paul Darrah.

Police found Bustos dead in her apartment earlier this month by police who were making a well-being check at the request of family members, police said.

Bustos and Granados were married in 2000 and divorced last year, according to DuPage County court records. They have children ages 9 and 4, who are staying with relatives.

The murder is the first reported in the village since 2003. In 2006 a man was shot to death by police in what was ruled a justifiable homicide.

Anyone with information related to the homicide is asked to call Glen Ellyn police at 630-469-1187.
