DAWSON COUNTY - A man has confessed to murder after human remains turned up in Dawson County last month.

On Monday, officers got a tip that the remains belonged to 31-year-old Patricia Rodriguez of Lamesa and that Lugo had killed her.

When officers arrested him, he reportedly confessed.

However, there's no word on when she was killed.

Authorities are still waiting for the remains to be positively identified. 

Lugo's bond is set at $1 million.
