Four American citizens permanently separated from their families and friends.

From Fox News: Investigators in northern Nevada said a suspect in the murders of four people, three of them women, is in custody on an immigration hold and other charges.

Wilbur Ernesti Martinez-Guzman, 19, was arrested Saturday afternoon by deputies from the Carson County Sheriff’s Office, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam told a news conference Sunday.

“We feel confident we have the evidence to link him to all four homicides,” Balaam said.

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.

The sheriff urged residents to turn on outside lights, secure their homes and refuse to open the door for anyone they didn’t know.

On Sunday, Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley told the Reno and Carson City communities: “We feel strongly that we have the man responsible for this and that you can continue to go about your daily activities and live normally.”

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong told reporters a tip led investigators to surveil Martinez-Guzman, who had lived in the Carson City area for approximately one year. Furlong added that immigration officials had said that Martinez-Guzman “was likely in the United States illegally and was detainable.”

Martinez-Guzman was being held in the Carson City Jail on Sunday and was charged with burglary, possession of stolen property and obtaining money under false pretenses. Furlong added that an immigration hold had been placed on the suspect, who was not known to his office.

Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks said authorities would seek arrest warrants against Martinez-Guzman for the murders “in the coming days.”

Illegal alien injures two teenage girls in hit & run – had previous DUI arrests in the US

From KETV (Omaha, NE): An undocumented immigrant illegal alien is behind bars Thursday night after Omaha police said he fled the scene of a hit-and-run crash on Feb. 4.
Investigators said 31-year-old Alejandro D Lara-Lozano was arrested Monday at a home in Omaha. They believe he was planning to head to Mexico.
Madison Reed, 16, and a friend were driving near Oak View Mall when the crash happened. OPD said Lara-Lozano slammed into her car head on and ran away. “I was just horrified, you know, at the condition of my granddaughter’s car … how they survived this accident I’ll never know,” said Joan Reed, Madison Reed’s grandmother.
KETV spoke with Joan Reed over the phone Thursday. She talked about the emotions she felt the day of the crash, learning the driver of the truck took off. “Very angry,” Reed said. “Thinking to myself, how can you just get out of your vehicle and then look at these girls, seeing the extent of the damage?”
According to court documents, a Facebook message from Lara-Lozano’s wife helped police identify him as the driver. The documents say she reached out to Joan Reed, telling her Lara-Lozano was driving that night and hiding in Illinois.
According to police documents, Lara-Lozano is an illegal immigrant. Joan Reed said she recently learned this news. “To us, it makes no difference who he is or where he’s from, whether he’s here legally or illegally,” Reed said. “That’s just not something that makes a difference to us at this point.”
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine is aware of the case, with Lara-Lozano in court Wednesday. He’s now potentially awaiting deportation. “At this time, we made sure we connected with immigration and they have a hold on him for that purpose,” Kleine said Thursday.
As for Madison Reed, she is recovering from a shattered heel and fractured vertebra. A junior at Marion, she’ll now have to put her dancing on hold.  “She’s having some emotional struggles,” Joan Reed said. “She’s got some anger, she’s got some sadness, she’s just trying to kind of come to grips with all of it.”
The passenger in Madi’s car is also a junior at Marion. She’s since been released from the hospital. Lara-Lozano’s bond was set at $3 million. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 10.
According to KMTV, the illegal alien had 3 previous DUI arrests in Illinois and Iowa.
