Illegal alien gang suspected in murder case
5 suspects facing murder charges in death of 15-year-old girlThere could be more victims of this gang. It makes no sense that these gangs are allowed to infiltrate the US and commit crimes. This was no act of love.
Police would not identify the gang involved, but Damaris’s mother, who now fears for her own life, says the brutal Salvadorian gang MS-13 is responsible. Her mother also says that she has been getting threats from members of the gang blaming her for the arrests that police have made.
Kevin Donovan with the FBI Washington field office commented about working to identify international threats saying, “with regards to trying to identify threats coming from outside the US, particularly from Central America the FBI is partnered with other federal agencies including the state department to develop transnational anti-gang task force down in El Salvador.”
ICE has lodged detainers for all four adult suspects in this case, which means they are either here in the country illegally or they violated the terms of their legal status in the U.S. It also means that they are requesting that Fairfax County notify ICE before these people are released.
Venus Iraheta, a 17-year-old Fairfax County girl who returned home Tuesday night after she was reported missing by her mother on Jan. 15, has also been taken into police custody related to this murder case. Iraheta's mother confirmed to FOX 5 she has been in the country for nearly 10 years illegally.
