During the course of the investigation this week, investigators determined the teen was allegedly killed inside of a home in the 7000 block of Varnum Street in Landover Hills, Md. before his body was allegedly driven to Stafford County, Va.

The suspects are 29-year-old Jose Ordonez-Zometa of the 7000 block of Varnum Street in Landover Hills, 20-year-old Jonathan Castillo-Rivera of the 4000 block of America Drive in Annandale, 18-year-old Kevin Rodriguez-Flores of no fixed address, 16-year-old Christian Martinez-Ramirez of the 2000 block of Dover Lane in Falls Church and 25-year-old Jose Hernandez-Garcia of no fixed address.
