Here are some things I found on my own,
Private First Class Pacheco-Bartolomei service # 29177411 was a member of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 65th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. He was listed as Missing in Action while fighting the enemy in North Korea on January 8, 1952. He was presumed dead on December 31, 1953. His remains were not recovered. His name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial. Private First Class Pacheco-Bartolomei was awarded the Purple Heart, the Combat Infantryman's Badge, the Korean Service Medal, the United Nations Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Korean Presidential Unit Citation and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal.
You could try to obtain after action reports for his unit, this would probably give you an idea of were he was located before he was presumed MIA, or KIA maybe that would at least give a clue as to his last known whereabouts.
