FOX 5 is reporting Thursday that U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has detainers for four adults arrested in connection with the abduction and murder of 15-year-old Damaris Alexandria Reyes Rivas, whose badly decomposed body was found Saturday near an industrial park in the Springfield area of Fairfax County. Six juveniles have also been arrested.

Police say the victim was held against her will, taken to Lake Accotink Park, and assaulted before she was killed and her body left nearby sometime early in January. Representatives of several agencies involved in the investigation, including ICE Homeland Security Investigations, held a press conference Thursday afternoon, where they announced murder charges against five of the suspects.

Investigators say the murder was related to gang activity. Although police chose not to name the gang, FOX 5 claims it is MS-13, which the victim’s mother confirmed in an interview. She told WUSA she brought her daughter from El Salvador to Gaithersburg, Md., trying to get her away from a gang.

As Twitchy reported, ICE has taken a beating in the press this week over a number of arrests, including the arrest of a 23-year-old DACA recipient, which led Rep. Nancy Pelosi to repeat her claim that DREAMers “represent the best of America.” Further, the detention of a woman who had gone to a courthouse to file a domestic abuse report was called “evil” and “unconscionably terrible.”
