A nineteen-year-old illegal alien was arrested in Nevada and is suspected of being a serial killer who murdered four people, three of them women.
Wilbur Ernesti Martinez-Guzman, 19, was arrested Saturday by the Carson County Sheriff’s Office, Fox News reported.
“We feel confident we have the evidence to link him to all four homicides,” Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said at a Sunday news conference.
According to Fox:
Investigators said the killings started on or around Jan. 10 in Gardnerville, a town south of Carson City. Connie Koontz, 56, was found shot and killed in her home. On Jan. 13, 74-year-old Sophia Renken was found dead in her home approximately a mile away from Koontz.
The FBI joined the investigation after the bodies of married couple Gerald David, 81, and Sharon David, 80, were found in their home on the southern edge of Reno Wednesday. Balaam told The Associated Press on Friday that all four killings were similar in the use of a firearm and the removal of objects from the victims’ homes.
Immigration officials alerted the Nevada authorities that Martinez-Guzman is in the U.S. illegally.
The suspect has also now been placed on an immigration hold.
Martinez-Guzman was booked into the Carson City Jail on Saturday and charged with burglary, possession of stolen property and obtaining money under false pretenses.
Authorities in Washoe County are also seeking an arrest warrant in the four murders.
