ar connection with the murder of a 15-year-old, and police suspect this was a murder connected to gang activity. 15-year-old demaris race rivas was found dead saturday. we're learning another murder in prince william's county could be linked. fox 5 matt ackland is live at police headquarters with more on this one. matt? >> reporter: tony, as you said, ten people have been arrested in connection to this murder and authorities say they're looking at several overlapping cases. i want you to take a look at these pictures. three are mug shots one is a picture we were able to obtain of four adults that have been arrested. there are also six teach juveniles arrested in connection to this crime as well. police say these arrests are connected to gang activity but they won't mention the gang's name publicly. that is standard policy because they don't want to give the gangs any publicity.
6:03 pm
video connected to this case, but police won't elaborate on it. police spoke about these overlapping investigations earlier today. take a listen. >> i've been charged in connection with the murder investigation of 15-year-old demaris rivas from the case from january 8th. all people have been charged with abduction and participation at this time and we believe that there are no outstanding suspects we anticipate additional charges in the near future and we will place those charges we will notify the public. >> reporter: tony and shawn, we learned new information out of prince william's county, that shorts are looking into the case here in connection to the january 12 death of christian rivas, his body washed up on the potomac river today. authorities in prince william's county saying that this case could be connected to the case that's being investigated in fairfax county. we want to continue now with our
6:04 pm
let's go over to alexandra limon also on the story. alex? >> reporter: that's right, matt, in fact, prince william's county police confirmed that christian rivas, the victim's whose body washed up from the potomac was, in fact, murdered, they're look into whether his murder could be tied and likely is tied to this ongoing gang investigation here in fairfax county. in part because he knew some of the players involved. including this girl right here. take a look at her photo. she is 17-year-old venus eita, she ran away from home in mid january, in fact, just a few days after that body washed up from the potomac, but she showed up safe and sound at home last night, and then just a few hours later, she was taken into custody by fairfax county police along with now the total of ten people who are arrested in connection with the
6:05 pm
this girl, 15-year-old demaris rivas from gaithersburg. her put body was found in springfield on saturday. she had been missing since december and fairfax county police investigators found her body in a wooded area in springfield, and what is so strange that wooded area is very very close to the home of another missing teenager. we're talking about this girl liz zy rivera. she and her 5-year-old son had been missing since january but they turned up safe and sound the very same day the body was found near the home. this man, the baby's father, has been arrested in connection with that domestic incident, fairfax county police confirmed to me that he is one of those ten people who was arrested in connection with the murder
6:06 pm
so a lot of information, a lot of connections. and as you seen, a lot of arrests, fairfax county police told us the reason they were able to make so many arrests is because they've been investigating this case, and theling,s between the suspected gang members when the gaithersburg teenager disappeared. they also told us all of the suspects that have been arrested are between the ages of 15 and 21. and they're facing charges for gang-related activity as well as abduction, but more charges could come including possible murder charges for some of these suspects. live in fairfax county. alexandra limon fox 5 local news >> i want to ask you one question. there is a lot of information. we know about the 15-year-old girl demaris rivas. you mentioned that there may be a link to this
6:07 pm
in prince william's county, christian rivas, do we know if they're related? . >> reporter: we don't think so. the reason i say that, at least police haven't confirmed that, number one. also, demaris rivas and christian rivas is really confusing but i'll try to explain it. hispanic last names are actually flipped opposite so their first last name may be the mother's maiden name in one case and the fraternal in the case of the other person they may be have the same last 98 in the case of the one of those it's actuallily mother's but common in hispanic families to use last names that's best explanation i have. as far as anything police told us they have not confirmed that they're related in any way. >> that actually does help a lot. alexandra limon thank you, alex. all right. we made it to halfway point thinking about the weekend. >> here's a look at

6:09 pm
winchester and annapolis at 30. they will be blustery tonight and tomorrow although closer to the 20 to maybe 25 miles an hour range as we go forward the rest of tonight and during the day tomorrow. what you do have to dress for in addition to these cold temperatures is the fact that windchills will be in the 20's and we're already there in many places. it feels like 22 in winchester right now. 28 gaithersburg, 34 frederick and 29 at dulles, prepare if you're heading out this evening, that it's going to be pretty chilly out there especially with that wind, what we have been noticing again with the strong winds coming off the lakes, a few lake effects snow showers, another batch coming through western pennsylvania. i believe a lot will dry up now and going forward tonight those skies should begin to clear out now that the frontal boundary has passed through. the breezes again will pick up. clear and cold overnight. we're headed for the 20's and a chilly but bright thursday is ahead for us. we'll talk about the weekend warmup. it's a three-day weekend for a lot with president day monday coming up in a

6:20 pm
>> a lot of storms passing by not necessarily with a lot of moisture for us but enough wind in the atmosphere and they're back again. i think the worst is over but they will stay a little bit blustery on the order of 20 to 30 miles an hour. you feel that. >> yep? and especially now that we know the temperatures going to drop. you know what i love about this? you know what i'm going to say, we can still see -- i like that. >> that is great. yes, it looks beautiful out there. i take it we're looking at national harbor? that's a beautiful backdrop, i'm sure they ordered that up as a wednesday special. looks great and i'm sure it's nice and toasty, that temperature is dropping and it will continue to head for the 20's tonight, so we'll stay breezy, we're definitely going to be a lot colder, that furnace will be clicking on a little bit more and it will feel like the 20's and 30's going through the day thursday. even though our winds should not gust as high as they have. which should get up to
6:21 pm
reagan. friday temperatures will be closer to average. upper 40's on friday, it's going to be near 40's and feeling colder. and the weekend nice warmup well timed too for a couple of reasons, it's the holiday weekend for many of you. and we kind of ripped off last weekend when we expected it to get warmer than it did and it lurked just to our south over the weekend. our temperature right now here in the district, down from our high of 55 to 43. so we bumped up quickly only for about an hour or so and now we're down again, 37 in gaithersburg, it's also 37 in westminster, 39 for dulles, manassas coming in at about 40 right now. and 34 in winchester, getting chilly out there, of course, the gusts certainly help in that matter. we're getting a gust to 25, which is better than we had an hours ago but they're still getting a gust to 39 in baltimore, 26 at dulles, martinsberg and 31 miles per hour gusts again generally those will start to drop, but still not go light. likely see gusts continuing betwn
6:22 pm
tonight but during the day tomorrow as well. already, our windchills are into the 20's to mid 30's and they will continue to get colder because there's plenty of cold air to our north that's got to move on. pittsburgh is 29. 34 in columbus, 29 in detroit and 34 in chicago. our planner this evening, air temperature 42 at 7:00, feeling like the 30's, because the breezes will be mighty blustery, 39 at 9:00. by the time we get to 11:00 under clear skies, 37 degrees. overnight, again, near 30 in the district but lots of 20's out there. and as that wind continues to keep the atmosphere mixed up, it will keep those windchill temperatures even lower than that. so here's our wind makerer once again, big area of low pressure that has form up off the northeast and the frontal boundary that got dragged through our area today will be close enough tomorrow that we keep the chill and the breeze hanging around but a lot of afternoon sunshine back. so hopefully that will take the edge off the cold for you just
6:23 pm
little bit. we'll head to about 42 tomorrow. 37 for gaithersburg, 36 for manassas, 41 leonardtown. feast your eyes on these winds, tomorrow morning, still getting gusts, this is the predicted wind gusts to near 20 miles per hour. maybe as high as 24 or 25, but by the time we get to 6:00, a little bit more reasonable but you can see there's not a whole lot of lightening. we'll have to get used to this blustery breeze continuing so the cold shot is in here for tomorrow and little bit friday then the jet stream will recede to the north and bring in our weekend warmup here's a look at the three-day weekend and then we'll check your seven-day, we're going to head for 63 saturday with a mix of sun heading over to clouds. sunday looks great. sunny and mild and monday also looking terrific at 64. your fox 5 accu-weather seven-day forecast. we're not done with the 60's. that begins a trend of
6:24 pm
least through the middle of next week. i kept predicting that i thought this would be the worse week of the winter because i got a deal to get the roof done. and that's starting monday. so >> let's hope it continues >> i don't want it for ten days in a row. it's looking good so far. hope i didn't jinks anything just now >> you didn't. >> cross fingers. >> we'll be right back.
