Maryland: A 14-year old girl, Ariana Funes-Diaz, who participated in the kidnapping and robbery of man in April, was herself murdered with a machete by her cohorts who feared she would snitch on them, according to police. Three teen suspects were arrested for murder in this case and will be tried as adults. St. George’s County had two of them, believed to be MS-13 gang members, in custody for attempted murder in a separate case last year but, because St. George’s County is a sanctuary county, authorities released the suspects back into the public. -GEG

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is searching for two illegal immigrants who are also murder suspects.

ICE sent out a release on Tuesday stating they are looking for Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar. The pair was reportedly released by local authorities in Prince George County in Maryland.

“Following the recent arrest of two unlawfully present teens suspected in the violent murder of a young girl in Maryland, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers in Baltimore are again seeking to take custody of the illegal aliens through the ICE detainer process following the Prince George’s County Detention Center’s (PGCDC) failure to cooperate,” ICE wrote in a release.

The two suspects were arrested on May 18, 2018 for attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participating in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges. ICE is reporting federal officers lodged a detainer with the Prince George’s County Detention Center. They were arrested again on May 16 for first-degree murder. However, both were released on an unknown date and time without notification to ICE, according to ICE. The Prince George County Police Department arrested the teens and believe both Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar are members of a gang.

“As law enforcement officers, we must continue to serve and protect the American public and act in the interest of public safety first,” said Baltimore Field Office Director Diane Witte. “These individuals had demonstrated violent criminal behavior before, and because they were released in spite of the lawful detainer, they were afforded an opportunity to take a life.”

Did George Floyd Die from Asphyxiation or Drug Overdose?

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.
