Mantorville, MN (KROC-AM News) - Dodge County investigators have recovered a car linked to an attempted murder case.

Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose says investigators and deputies executed a search warrant at a residence in West Concord and found the 2013 gray Ford Taurus sedan that a witness saw being used by the man who cut a man across his neck and then threw him off a bridge into a creek in rural Dodge County. The vehicle is registered to 27-year-old Elvylinda Favela Lopez, who is the wife of the suspect in the case, Rigo Eleazar Lopez Macias.

Sheriff Rose says the couple is now likely traveling in a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is also registered in Lopez's name. The vehicle was issued Minnesota license plate 575UCM.
