Five suspects are in custody for the weekend murder of a 16 year old from Fairfax County, Virginia. The victim is Jacson Pineda-Chicas of Parkwood Court in Falls Church.

On Saturday morning, at approximately 5:00 am, a Stafford County Sheriff’s deputy located the teen’s body in a remote, grassy area. During the course of the investigation this week, investigators determined the teen was killed inside of a home in the 7000 block of Varnum Street in Landover Hills before his body was driven to Stafford County.

The suspects are 29-year-old Jose Ordonez-Zometa of the 7000 block of Varnum Street in Landover Hills, 20-year-old Jonathan Castillo-Rivera of the 4000 block of America Drive in Annandale, VA, 18-year-old Kevin Rodriguez-Flores of no fixed address, 16-year-old Christian Martinez-Ramirez of the 2000 block of Dover Lane in Falls Church and 25-year-old Jose Hernandez-Garcia of no fixed address. All of the suspects are charged as adults. Ordonez-Zometa is in the custody of the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections. The four remaining suspects are in custody in Virginia.

The preliminary investigation reveals the victim and the suspects are members of a MS-13 clique that operates in Fairfax County, Virginia.  On March 8th, the victim and several members traveled to Prince George’s County to attend a meeting at the home of the clique’s leader. At that meeting, for reasons which are under investigation, there was a confrontation during which the 16 year old was attacked and killed. All suspects are being charged with first degree murder and other related charges.
