Pryor Police say a woman's ex-boyfriend is now the prime suspect in her weekend murder.

Authorities think he may try to flee the area and are seeking the public’s help to find him. On Saturday afternoon, police discovered 25-year-old Shelly Hoffman's body at her home in Pryor.

Police say she died as a result of blunt trauma to her head. Investigators are now looking for her ex-boyfriend, 29-year old Alfonso Hernandez Mandragon. He's a Hispanic male, about 5-foot-8 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds. He was last seen driving a green 1989 Mercury Marquis, but police confirm he took the vehicle back to the used car lot he bought it from.

Pryor Police say Mandragon tried to sell the car back, but when they refused, he left the car on the lot and said he had to go back to Mexico to solve some family problems.

Police told the News on 6 they plan on issuing an arrest warrant Mandragon. If you have any information on his whereabouts, you can call the Pryor Police at 918-825-1212.
