Virginia suspect who allegedly beat Muslim girl to death is an illegal immigrant

Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, appeared in court on Monday to face a murder charge after he got into a dispute with the 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen and a group of her friends in Sterling, North Virginia, the Fairfax County Police Department said.

Martinez got out of the car, assaulted the girl, and beat her with a metal baseball bat, her mother said. Police later found a body believed to be Hassanen’s in a Sterling pond about 25 miles outside of Washington DC.

On Monday afternoon it was reported by NBC4: ‘ICE has lodged a detainer against (Torres) meaning they believe he’s here illegally.’
