Wheaton murder suspect was detained by police twice before allegedly killing woman

A Wheaton woman might still be alive today, but for Montgomery County's sanctuary county immigration policies. According to Maryland court records, Elmer Marilan Campos-Martinez - who has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Wheaton mother and KFC employee Dania Mendez de Guerra - was detained in traffic stops twice by police since 2012. Because officers are forbidden to ask about the immigration status of those they stop, Campos-Martinez was put back on the streets, despite being in the country illegally.

Case records indicate that Campos-Martinez was pulled over by Montgomery County police on October 7, 2012 at 11:46 PM. He was cited for operating a motor scooter without a license on Veirs Mill Road at Parkland Drive. On April 23, 2013, Campos-Martinez paid a $50 fine and $33 in court fees. Without a check of his citizenship status, he was a free man.

While still living on N. Horners Lane in Rockville, Campos-Martinez was pulled over yet again by Rockville City police on April 20, 2014 at 11:13 PM. Driving an actual car this time, he was cited for driving without a license on Veirs Mill Road at First Street in Rockville.  Once again, the officer was not allowed to check his immigration status. In this case, Campos-Martinez did not even have to pay a fine or court fees. The prosecutor entered a nolle prosequi, meaning the State would not pursue the case, and the charges were thereby dropped.

Three-and-a-half years later, Campos-Martinez - now living in the Woods Edge Apartments on Cove Lane in Rockville - was working alongside de Guerra at the KFC at 2119 University Boulevard West in Wheaton. Leaving work, he laid in wait for the 21-year-old de Guerra to walk home to her husband and child on Amherst Avenue, police allege. Four days later, her body was found behind the CVS Pharmacy across a parking lot from her apartment.

Of course, he wouldn't have been there to lay in wait, had he been deported in 2012 after his first scooter misadventure (by the way, do you believe you would have avoided a fine and court fees if you were caught driving without a license? Is there now a separate law for non-citizens?). In fact, Campos-Martinez was deported in 1994. But the sanctuary policies of Montgomery County kept him coming back.
The victim, Dania Mendez de Guerra
If the murder allegations by police are true, those policies cost Dania Mendez de Guerra her life, and her family a wife and mother.

  2. "but for Montgomery County's sanctuary county immigration policies"

    You think it's a county decision that local authorities don't "check papers" during a traffic stop? How fucking stupid are you? It's called the U.S. Constitution you dumb fuck, Anti-American, Gestapo-loving, racist piece of human trash.

    2. 2:16: What specifically is "racist" about a factual news report and court records? The victim was a Latina, and the media and County officials are acting like she doesn't matter. They even go with the suspect's version of the story!! Who is the racist again?

      It absolutely is a County decision to not check immigration status, as Sheriff Chuck Jenkins of Frederick County can tell you.

  6. Do Virginia and the cities and counties therein run an immigration check every single time someone is stopped for a traffic violation?

    Yes or no, Dyer?

  7. Mr. Dyer still refuses to recant his false insinuation that this poor woman's murder was the result of gang activity. Shameful.

    1. 7:32: I never made any such claim. The victim's neighbors were talking extensively about gangs after she disappeared, and that was the context for my report. No direct claim was made in my article.

  8. MORE LIES FROM DYER THE LIAR!

    This guy was pulled over in 2012 and 2014.

    The Rockville ordinance forbidding police from asking about a person's immigration status was passed five years later, on June 20, 2017.

    How is something that happened in 2012 attributable to a policy that was not enforced until years later?

    "the officer was not allowed to check his immigration status"

    1. 7:38: You've only proven yourself a complete moron. The Rockville policy was in place a long time ago. It was only formalized this year, leading many to ask why it had to be passed at all.

      Fact: the Rockville officer was not allowed to check his immigration status in the 2012 traffic stop. As a result of that policy, he was here still in 2017 to allegedly kill a young mother. Talk to the rank and file officers, and they'll tell you they're very frustrated being unable to fully do their job - preventing crime.

    2. ****** A few items: 1) I checked out the 2 blue dumpsters at the CVS
      where the girl's body was discovered. They were overflowing with trash and boxes. Behind and next to the dumpsters there were boards and trash. It was trashy and "dumpy" looking for sure !! Bottom line is that the girl's body could have easily been under some boxes and trash when discovered by kids playing in the area.
      2) I still would like to know how long the girl's body had been dead.
      The autopsy report did not reveal that info. And the Police Dept.
      has not revealed when the dumpsters were first searched ??????

      3) Important to remember that Dania De Guerra was an adult at 21 yrs.
      old. Law enforcement will be slower in looking for an adult than
      they would be with a juvenile. That's just how they run.

      4) Not all Police Officers in Mont. County are frustrated with
      immigration policies. There are many ( shall we say ) liberal
      officers who don't want to deal with ICE.......... or question
      anyone regarding their legal status.

      5) Finally, the more Officers I personally speak with --- the more I'm
      coming to the realization that the police force has way too many
      "snowflakes" and "pajama boys". They come across to me as
      ***** weak *****. But, yes and yes >>>>>> IN SO MANY WAYS
      THEY ARE JUST SLAVES OF THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY
      COUNCIL AND COUNTY EXECUTIVE, IKE LEGGITT.

      I am very discouraged !!!

    3. 6:09: Some of the officers I've spoken to do support the department policy on immigration status, but I would say it's about 4 out of every 5 who oppose it, in my experience. I share your concerns about the holes in the story. If they are going with the suspect's story of knocking her down and running away with the cell phone and purse, why was she found in a different, hidden location?

      Delete
    4. "If they are going with the suspect's story of knocking her down and running away with the cell phone and purse, why was she found in a different, hidden location?"

      They reported what the suspect said. That doesn't mean that they are "going with it". You are such an idiot, Dyer.

      Delete
    5. 6:57: Wrong. Usually detectives give their theorized version of events in a press release. In this case, they have given only the suspect's side of the story. He could be making the whole relationship story up, for all we know. Why does it state that, and all other details, from the suspect's version only? Bizarre, and completely unfair to the victim and her family. The only rational explanation would be if they were doing this strategically to trap an accomplice or something. But there's no indication of anyone else being involved, so grossly unfair to the victim.

      Delete
    6. The victim's family has requested they handle it this way. Revisit your sources.

      Delete
    7. 11:24: The victim's family has asked that police publicize she was having an affair, just because the suspect claimed she was? The victim's family is asking police to say she just accidentally died after a little scuffle with the suspect?

      I'd like to be there when you make those claims directly, in-person, to the victim's family.

    8. Dyer, last time you pretended to speak for the victim, you got burned, badly. I thought you would have learned your lesson.

      Delete
    9. That's what they requested. I'm sure you can understand them wanting privacy and not wanting strangers discussing their daughter's private life.

      Delete
    10. I asked the same question: How in the world are folks on this site getting info. from the victim's family ???? Is this fake news ???

      Something is fishy here !!!

      Delete
    11. 10:37: I never spoke for the victim. Stop lying. You're the one posting fake - and totally insane - comments claiming the victims family "requested" that the police put out an embarrassing story that may be totally fake, and which exonerates the suspect from intentional murder. You are not only a liar, but completely insane, as well.

      Claiming publicly that she had an affair with the suspect is "privacy" and "not discussing her private life?" You are off your rocker, MoCo Cartel Guy.

      Delete
    12. "We will not be commenting." That's what more and more groups are telling families to say.

      Once again, you don't display any understanding of the concept that saying anything, justifying anything, confirming anything, suggesting anything, theorizing anything HURTS the victims and the families.

      There are great organizations that help families and victims go through abuse, assault and murder. It would be extremely short-sighted to assume none of their thousands of employees or volunteers search out and read local articles.

      Delete
    13. 12:21: And the police alleging an unsubstantiated affair between the suspect and the victim, on the suspect's word only, didn't "HURT the family?" Using his side of the story only, one that favors him getting a lighter sentence, didn't "HURT the family?"

      Please.

      Delete
    14. "And the police alleging an unsubstantiated affair between the suspect and the victim, on the suspect's word only..."

      That's your assumption, Dyer, and yours alone.

      Delete
    15. 11:00: Wait a minute, you said the issue was about "saying...anything HURTS the victims and the families?" So why did the police "say...anything" about the affair, and the sequence of events from the SUSPECT's perspective, and why are you criticizing me, and not THEM?

  9. Proud Montgomery County Police OfficerNovember 16, 2017 at 1:52 PM

    Here's what Officers really oppose:
    Being called "snowflakes" and "pajama boys", being called "***** weak *****," and being told "THEY ARE JUST SLAVES"

    That's the thanks they get for putting their lives on the line for each and every one of you, each and every day.

    But I have yet to hear a couple of you respond to the Montgomery County Council who are under the leadership of Ike Leggitt ------- appropriate $900,000 to fight gang activity in the County. Of course, gang activity is related to illegal immigration policies. So ----- almost one million bucks to fight a problem right here in our beloved county.......... and you want to downplay it or ignore it as if it does not exist. hhhmmmmmmmmmmmm

  11. It's unfortunate but many people won't understand the threat that illegal immigration poses until they are directly impacted by it,or their families are.So many innocent families have been killed when an illegal gets drunk and decides to get behind the wheel of a car.The Kate Steinle murder is another prime example of deadly Santuary City Policy.Until these people directly experience it,they won't change.
