Suspect Sought 24 Years After Man's Murder

Domingo Gomez is accused of murdering Jose Paulo Hernandez-Ulloa inside his home on January 17, 1989

San Diego homicide detectives are searching for a man wanted in connection with a murder that took place exactly 24 years ago to the day.

Suspect Domingo Gomez is accused of killing victim Jose Paulo Hernandez-Ulloa inside his home in the 3300 block of C Street back on January 17, 1989.

Detectives say Gomez, along with this brother Austolio Gomez, shot and stabbed Hernandez-Ulloa and then dumped his body at a nearby location.

In 1990, detectives arrested and eventually convicted Austolio in connection with his part in this murder.

Domingo, however, fled and has never been caught.

To this day, he’s still wanted for his alleged involvement in the murder of Hernandez-Ulloa. More than two decades after the murder, police continue to search for him.

According to investigators, Domingo may have initially fled to Las Vegas or Mexico. He may originally be from Michoacan, Mexico.

Police describe him as a Mexican national, 5-foot-6, 140 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and several scars and tattoos, including the word “Love” tattooed on his left hand, the name “Helda” tattoed on his left arm and a dragon tattoo on his upper back. The picture to the right shows him in November 1999.

Detectives say that over the years, the suspect has used different birthdates including March 8, 1970, March 17, 1990 and March 7, 1990. His actual age is unknown.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on Domingo’s whereabouts to contact the SDPD Homide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
