After receiving “dozens of tips” earlier this month in response to a photo of a vehicle allegedly associated with a July 2021 murder, Morgan Hill Police released a photo of a young man on a bicycle who they are seeking to identify in connection with the homicide.

Police said Humberto Cossio, 33, of Morgan Hill, was shot and killed July 20, 2021, as he was walking south through the intersection of Monterey Road and Spring Avenue. 

The investigation found that Cossio may have been in a verbal confrontation on Ciolino Avenue just prior to the shooting, but no suspects have been identified.

On Aug. 14, Morgan Hill Police released a photo of a white Nissan Sentra suspected of being connected to the shooting, last seen driving west on Spring Avenue. Since that photo was released, the police department has “received dozens of tips and anonymous information” related to the 2021 murder.

On Aug. 30, MHPD released a photo of a male subject on a bicycle whom investigators are trying to identify. A press release accompanying the photo does not specify if the young man is a suspect in the murder of Cossio. Also on Aug. 30, police released an updated photo of the white Nissan Sentra that was allegedly connected to the shooting.

Police said the murder investigation is ongoing. Anyone who may have information about the photographs of the vehicle or person can call MHPD Detective Adrian Sapien at 669.253.4995 or email [email protected].

Additionally, the information can be given anonymously online at or by calling 1.800.222.TIPS.

Morgan Hill Police on Aug. 30 released this updated photo of a white Nissan Sentra that is allegedly connected to the July 2021 murder of Humberto Cossio in Morgan Hill.
