    A fourth arrest has been made in the murder of a man whose remains were found in a wooded area of the Prince William County earlier this year. 

    Kevin Wilfredo Vasquez Henriquez, 21, was charged with the murder of Oscar Rene Andrade on March 3, Prince William County police announced Monday. Police say Henriquez was previously arrested in California on unrelated charges and remains in their custody. He is awaiting extradition to Virginia. 

    Last month, 18-year-old David Jonathan Pineda Argueta and two 17-year-old boys were also charged in connection with Andrade's death. 

    Police say Andrade's family last heard from him on Sept. 10, 2015; they reported him missing four days later. Officers found the 29 year old's body in a wooded area of Barrett Drive in Manassas on Jan. 13, 2016. 

    While investigating Andrade's disappearance, police learned that Argueta had been stopped by police in D.C. while driving Andrade's car. At that time, Argueta was arrested on unrelated charges. 

    Police believe the suspects, who are known members of the street gang MS-13, conspired to rob and murder the victim. 

    Police do not believe Andrade was connected to the gang. 

    Argueta has been charged with murder, robbery, gang participation and gang recruitment. One of the teens has been charged with accessory after the fact to murder, gang participation and gang recruitment, while the other was charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
