MoCo gang horror
reaches new heights
Residents in the Amherst Avenue area of Wheaton are anxiously awaiting the identification of a woman's body, which was found behind dumpsters in back of the CVS Pharmacy at 2321 University Boulevard West Friday afternoon. That's because one of their own neighbors, Dania Suyapa Mendez de Guerra, 21, disappeared after midnight Monday, after leaving the nearby KFC restaurant to walk to her home in the 11500 block of Amherst. Montgomery County police said they cannot rule out that the body is De Guerra's, but have transported the unidentified woman to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.
Paramedics were called to the scene at 3:29 PM yesterday, after the body was found behind CVS. An East MoCo reader reports that De Guerra's apartment is in the building directly across the parking lot from where the body was discovered. If it is determined that the body had been there prior to Friday afternoon, it would raise serious questions as to why investigators would not have searched the Wheaton Manor Shopping Center property days ago - as well as all nearby properties, given that a missing woman had disappeared on such a short walk home.
Whoever the deceased person was, and if she was indeed the victim of a homicide, there clearly was no significant attempt by the perpetrator(s) involved to cover-up their crime. Only someone who doesn't fear getting caught would put a body behind CVS.
The horrifying discovery Friday has many nearby residents more concerned than ever about gang activity in Wheaton. Impotent Montgomery County elected officials, who have actively given safe harbor to MS-13 and other dangerous gangs for years, like to say the record homicide numbers in the County are simply "gang-on-gang violence," and pose no danger to the community. Should an innocent woman have been victimized by one or more gang members in this case, it would signify the coming turf war between MS-13 and a new spin-off rival may already have arrived. MS-13 capos in El Salvador recently told recruits to head to Montgomery County, the Washington Post reported, as the County's sanctuary policies make it the ideal place to make their stand against the new rival gang.
