    [DC] Body of Missing Fairfax County Teen Found

    Police are continuing to investigate after a teen's body was found in a rural part of Prince William County. The teen had gone missing in Fairfax County. News4's Derrick Ward reports.

    (Published Thursday, Aug. 24, 2017)

    Ruiz Carillo was last seen Aug. 3 leaving his home in the 4200 block of Buckman Road in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County. When he didn't come home by the next morning, his family called police. He was reported missing on August 8.

    Family members said it was out of character for Carrillo to leave without telling his family. Police said Carrillo was "associated with gang activity."

    Police used cadaver dogs and helicopters in an extensive search of an area in Nokesville, Virginia "based upon information received during the course of the investigation," police said. Carrillo’s body was recovered near Nokesville Road and Fauquier Drive after this search.

    The killing was not random and likely was gang-related, Prince William County police said in a statement.

    Fairfax County police previously arrested two adults in connection to Carrillo's disappearance: Jose Vincent-Sosa, 20 and Edwin Dinarte Moreno, 18, both of Alexandria. They also arrested a girl, who was not named because she was a juvenile. All were charged with abduction and gang participation.

    U.S. Marshals arrested 28-year-old Hector Armando Gamez-Amaya Sept. 3 and charged him with first degree murder in the Ruiz Carillo's death. Gamez-Amaya, a Georgia resident, was arrested in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

    Anyone with information about Carrillo's disappearance is asked to call Detective M. Fox at 571-489-1796 or Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
