ROCKINGHAM, Vt. – Vermont State Police detectives talked to drivers Friday on Route 103 in Rockingham, one week after a delivery driver was killed in the same area.

Police have said an autopsy has determined Roberto Fonseca-Rivera, 44 of Boston, died of a gunshot wound to the head and neck.  His death is being considered a homicide. 

His last known location was around noon on November 1, leaving Rutland and heading south on Route 103.

At the detail, Police handed out fliers and talked with drivers about the incident Friday between 12:45 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.  They also hope to identify potential witnesses.

“It’s a week from the incident itself, so we are trying to encounter and maybe come into contact with motorists that were maybe driving through a week ago, or if they consistently drive through that area or any local residents if they have any information of if they have seen anything,” said Lt. John-Paul Schmidt with the Major crime unit.

Anyone with information is asked to call Vermont State Police at (802) 722-4600.

Fonseca-Rivera worked for Katsiroubas Produce of Hyde Park, Massachusetts. Police say he was driving a company vehicle in Vermont making deliveries before his body was found in the vehicle.
