One of the suspects in a 2006 murder investigation has been returned to Washoe County to face charges, after being arrested earlier this year on unrelated charges in St. Clair County, Illinois. 33 year old Darwin Ramirez, was booked into the Washoe County Detention Facility on multiple charges, including murder and conspiracy to commit murder. June 24, 2006, Washoe County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Western Skies Road north of Geiger Grade on a report that the body of a deceased female had been located. 24-year-old Adrianna Carrillo-Guillen was the victim of a shooting that had occurred earlier that morning. Three suspects in the murder. One suspect, Refugio Moreno-Perez was arrested on related charges in 2006. Moreno-Perez was sentence to prison time for Conspiracy to Commit Murder in 2011. After serving time in prison, Moreno-Perez was reportedly taken into custody by federal immigration authorities. Investigators believed that the two additional suspects, Santiago Estrada and Darwin Ramirez, had fled the country shortly after the murder. In April, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office was notified by the St. Clair County jail that Darwin Ramirez was in their custody, and had been living under a false identity.
