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.
He’s only 19 [he claims] and he has murdered four people — at least. He’s also a thief.
We feel confident we have the evidence to link him to all four homicides,” Balaam said.
