Suspect in Fatal Boston hit-and-run apprehended by Texas Rangers Returning from El Salvador
– Boston Globe | Dec 02
“The former Everett man allegedly responsible for a June hit-and-run crash that killed a 25-year-old man in Chelsea was arrested Thursday by Texas Rangers, marking the end to what officials called “an exhaustive investigation.”
Jose Daniel Arevalo, 34, was taken into custody just outside Houston, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said in a prepared statement. Prosecutors believe he fled to El Salvador in the days after the crash but then returned to the United States.
He is expected to be brought back to Massachusetts to face the criminal charges at a later date.
Arevalo allegedly struck and killed Marco Salguero-Cruz with his Toyota Camry June 4 on Washington Street in Chelsea, prosecutors said. The driver fled and Salguero-Cruz was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he died.”

A Maryland teen, lured to the woods and stabbed 40 times, becomes latest victim of gang-related killings
“Members of the MS-13 street gang enlisted a 19-year-old woman to lure another teenager into a darkened Montgomery County park, where he was stabbed more than 40 times, according to police accounts of the county’s 10th gang-related killing in the past 10 months.
The accounts, filed this week in Montgomery District Court, underscored the horror of the slaying, with at least three assailants — one of them just 16 — who either held down the victim or repeatedly stabbed him.
“We really are seeing an unprecedented level of gang-related homicides,” said Capt. Paul Liquorie, director of the Montgomery Police Department’s Special Investigations Division.
In one of the suspected MS-13 killings last year in the county, assailants allegedly threw heavy rocks down on a victim as he crawled away from an attack toward a stream, according to court records. In another, the victim was told, “Get on your knees,” before being shot in the face, neck and shoulder while in the woods.
In the June 16 death of Cristian Antonio Villagran-Morales, 18, in Malcolm King Park in Gaithersburg, police said the 19-year-old, Vanesa Alvarado, used the promise of sex to entice Villagran-Morales into the park.
Police have arrested two suspects in the case, charging them with first-degree murder: Alvarado and Juan Gutierrez-Vasquez, 16, who allegedly took part in the attack. Police are looking for two more suspects: Oscar Ernesto Delgado-Perez, 27, and Jose Coreas Ventura, 20, who also goes by the name Jose Corea.
Court records do not indicate whether Gutierrez-Vasquez or Alvarado have retained attorneys. Police describe Alvarado as an “associate” of MS-13, a large gang with ties to El Salvador.
Detective Dimitry Ruvin, one of the investigators working the case, said the suspect, Gutierrez-Vasquez, came to Montgomery County from El Salvador in February and probably joined MS-13 after arriving. “I think he was recruited here,” Ruvin said.
At Gutierrez-Vasquez’s first court appearance on Tuesday, prosecutor Robert Hill said the 16-year-old had been enrolled at Gaithersburg High School but showed little interest in his studies. “He never went to school,” Hill said. “He was mostly interested in whatever the gang was doing.”
Immigration agents recently lodged a jail detainer against Gutierrez-Vasquez, an indication they could move to have him deported.
The Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, operates drug rings, human trafficking and prostitution networks extending from its base in El Salvador to Mexico, the United States and Canada, according to the Treasury Department. In October 2012, Treasury designated the group a “transnational criminal organization.”
In 2014, after years of relative quiet for the gang, FBI officials noted an upswing in violence. Experts attributed part of the resurgence to gang leaders in El Salvador attempting to reconstitute operations here in order to make more money.
In a report written last month, Montgomery police officials cited another factor for the renewal: the wave of teenagers migrating, without parents, from the gang violence of El Salvador and other Central American countries.
It’s not necessarily that the teenagers are arriving as hardcore gang members, but what seems clear, Liquorie said, is that by the time the teenagers get to Montgomery County, they often are isolated, broke, unable to speak English — and prime targets for area MS-13 members.”

Illegal Immigrant Ordered Deported Now Accused of Raping Minor in Virginia
“An illegal immigrant who was ordered to leave the country a year ago is now being sought by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for allegedly raping an underage girl.
Ronald Fabricio Herrera Contreras, 18, is wanted by ICE and the Fairfax County Police Department in Virginia for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl; abduction; assault and battery; and gang involvement, WJLA reported.
Contreras is accused by law enforcement of “dragging” the 15 year-old into a wooded area and then proceeding to rape her. The alleged gang member was reportedly given a “final order of removal” in June 2015 when he was found by immigration officials in Hidalgo, Texas.
ICE and Fairfax County police told local media that finding and arresting Contreras is now a top priority, partly due to the rape accusation and his illegal immigration status.

Authorities ID decapitated body found in Lawrence
– Boston Globe | Dec 02
“Lee Manuel Viloria-Paulino went missing Nov. 18. On Friday, authorities identified the headless body of a teenage boy, found the day before along the banks of the Merrimack River, as Viloria-Paulino, dashing the boy’s family’s prayers that it somehow wasn’t their Lee.
“The family is devastated, they’re shattered,” family spokesperson Linette Perez said from outside the family’s home Friday afternoon. “They still had hope that it wasn’t Lee.”
Viloria-Paulino, 16, was last seen in the area where his body was found, Perez said. He was with another boy who his family did not know well, she said. The boy had only come to the family’s home once.
The medical examiner’s office has declared the teenager’s death to be a homicide. No arrests have been made. Investigators recovered the boy’s head at the scene.”
