Suspect in murder of teen identified

The Poder Judicial has identified the last name of Colomer, the suspect in the murder of a 14-year-old girl. He has been remanded to preventative detention for the next three months.

The judiciary also has released more information on the case.

The body of the girl, Wendy Ojeda Pastrana, was identified Monday, and the suspect, 19, was detained. The Poder Judicial said that the body was found adjacent to where the suspect lived until last week. The girl had been tied hands and feet.

Investigators found traces of blood in both the location where the suspect used to live and his current living quarters, they said. They are trying to determine if the blood all came from the girl. She was strangled, but her face contained abrasions.
