Five illegal immigrants are being held for the gruesome murder of a woman who was shot 13 times. The victim, Jill Marie Sundberg’s body was found 1.5 miles west of Silica Road on December 22, 2016.
After killing the victim, Mendez Villenueva wrote a Spanish inscription on a piece of cardboard and placed the cardboard on the victim’s back and stabbed a knife through to secure it in place.

The suspects and the witnesses then drove the victim to a rest area alongside a highway. Varona was seen forcibly grounding Sundberg by kicking the back of her legs. When the Sundberg was down on the ground, Rodriguez allegedly unloaded 13 shots to Sundberg’s head.
After killing the victim, Mendez Villenueva reportedly wrote a Spanish inscription on a piece of cardboard. He later placed the cardboard at the victim’s back and stabbed a knife through to secure it in place.
