US marshals seek suspected MS-13 gang member in Frederick Co.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The U.S. Marshals Service is seeking leads to find a suspected MS-13 gang member who has been indicted in a Frederick County homicide.

The Frederick News-Post reports that a wanted bulletin provided by the marshal’s service is seeking Oscar Armando Sorto-Romero, the last of six suspects who hasn’t been apprehended in the death of Victor Antonio Turcios-Valle.

Rob Fernandez, commander of the Marshals Service’s Capital Area Regional Fugitive Force, tells the newspaper they believe he’s still in the United States. Fernandez says the 19-year-old may still be in Maryland, but authorities aren’t sure because he’s on the run.

Sorto-Romero’s last address was an apartment complex in Silver Spring, but the address dates back to a separate arrest warrant filed against him in June.
