LAFAYETTE — Police are asking for the public's help to locate a person of interest in the murder of a 52-year-old woman.

Lafayette Police Department officers responded to the home of Lisa Heinsen in the 1300 block of Hart Street on February 7 to perform a welfare check after a family member called them.

When they arrived, officers found Heinsen dead inside the home. Her death is being treated as a homicide.

Police say Juan Manuel Roano, 62, has been identified as a person of interest in the case. He is believed to be driving a 2004-2005 white Nissan Pathfinder with possible passenger side damage.

If anyone has any information on this crime or the whereabouts of Juan Roano, they are asked to contact the Lafayette Police Department at 765-807-1200 or through the anonymous We-Tip hotline at 800-78-CRIME.
