Limber Lopez, 15, was found dead in April near Gambrill State Park just outside of Federick, Maryland after his family reported him missing in late-Febraury. After the report was filed, authorities happened upon a crime scene at the state park the following day which led to the discovery of Lopez's body more than a month later, Frederick police chief Jason Lando said in a statement.
Authorities have charged the following MS-13 gang members for the alleged murder of Limber Lopez: Alexis Alfredo Ayala Lopez, 21; Jose Roberto Ramos Lopez, 23; Ismael Lopez Lopez, 29; Elmer Bladimir Reyes Reyes, 27; and Ismael Ivan Rivera Canales, 20.

Chief Lando said that during the investigation, detectives gathered forensic, digital, and video evidence that led them to the identities of the suspects.
According to police, arrest warrants were issued for the suspects, and on May 26, 2023, several search and seizure warrants were executed to apprehend the suspects.
"Since Mr. Lopez Funez was first reported missing back in late February, we have had officers and detectives working tirelessly, investigating this case," Chief Lando said in the statement. "Our team spent countless hours following leads and conducting searches all over the county. We were all hoping to find Limber alive and well, but sadly that did not happen."
"On behalf of the entire team at FPD, our hearts go out to the victim's family. While we know it will not bring Limber back, we hope the arrests in this case will offer some closure to the Lopez Funez family," Lando added.
