COCHISE COUNTY - News 4 has confirmed that a well-known rancher in Southeastern Arizona has died. Investigators say Rob Krentz was found shot to death Saturday night near his ranch.
Saturday morning Krentz reportedly left the ranch on a quad and called home a short time later to report an illegal immigrant, whom he thought was in need of medical attention.
That was the last time anyone heard from him.
Investigators located Krentz alongside his dog who we understand had been shot.
Krentz leaves behind and wife and 3 children.
According to the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame, the Krentz ranch was inducted one year ago Sunday.
