PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Another suspect has been arrested in connection with the MS-13 related murder of a girl found dead last month in a Prince George's County creek.
Police say Edwin Rios, 18, on May 15 drove Ariana Funes-Diaz of Adelphi to an apartment complex in the 6300 block of 64th Avenue in Riverdale, where three other teenagers lured the 14-year-old to a wooded area before killing her and dumping her body in a creek.
Authorities say Rios, of Southeast D.C., was arrested Friday and awaits extradition to Prince George's County.
The three other suspects: 16-year-old Josue Fuentes-Ponce of Bladensburg; 17-year-old Joel Escobar of Northeast D.C. and 14-year-old Cynthia Hernandez-Nucamendi of Lothian face first-degree murder charges. Police say Funes-Diaz died of blunt force trauma. Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar are MS-13 members, police said.
