Third Suspect Identified in Dale City Homicide

The victim was left in a Dale City roadway on Jan. 15.

Detectives in the Violent Crimes Bureau have identified the third suspect in the Jan. 15 Dale City homicide case in which a man's body was left in a Dale City roadway, Prince William County police spokesperson Jonathan Perok said. 

Douglas Hernandez is wanted for the charge of first degree murder. Police have already arrested and charged Juan Carlos Flores and Jose Miguel Diaz in the death. Diaz owned the van that was allegedly used to dump the victim.

The body of Barbaro Lupe Alonso-Irahola, 47, of no fixed address, was found in a Dale City neighborhood. The victim sustained trauma to his face from a blunt object and a knife, according to police.

"The accused, Hernandez, is believed to be the second man that was with Diaz when the victim was left in the roadway. A warrant has been obtained against Hernandez," Perok said.

Hernandez, mid-20s, is described as a 5-foot-7 Hispanic male, thin build, weighing about 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. His photo to the right is from 2010. His last known address is 3694 Delmar Drive.

more illegals or just their parents.

Fizban, don't be ignorant.

Illegals being illegal will they be executed before they are deported, its safer that way, costs less money too. Too many illegal criminals surviving off of legal citizens and endless appeals.
chris February 07, 2013 at 12:48 PM
I'm sorry but if u know how to read the news most of the crimes are not done by illegals..
esmee February 11, 2013 at 05:39 PM
I agree with chris. John smith dis you not read about the white man whom stanggled a woman in woodbridge im guessing ur supportive of him.. he was just stressed??? And casey anthony she didnt murder her daughter and jodi arias didnt murder travis alexander?mr smith u sound oh so IGNORANT! Disd u forget that illegals run most of this country???

Esmee, even though "John Smith" (if that is his real name) does not appear to have a real high IQ, how can you insult his level of intelligence when you type like you are drunk, high, or have some level of intelect disability yourself?
fckthebs April 27, 2013 at 01:56 PM
How is he intellectual when he's sitting here making a comment on somebody's legal status or illegal status. you think that it's okay to talk about somebody status when most of the people that work and do a lot of things here are illegals they're the ones who are here looking for jobs means it's not just the legals committing crimes and not all illegals sould be discriminated because of others actions. so you're telling me that people that were born here in the United States and commit crimes only go to jail for a couple years and get out with parole like really?? But when to comes to illegals they have to get deported that makes a lot of sense. bottom line it's not just illegals really need to punishment other people do as well let's not be bias or less not be ignorant to the fact that crime doesnt happen in all nationalities and all countries and I'm not saying that is OK to what happen to the victim but passing opinion on statuses that is like I said previously I think people really need to sit down and just realize that people make stupid decisions but not all illegals should be judged by this. And joe George its typos.
Joe George April 29, 2013 at 09:33 AM
fckthebs......so what was your account name before it was deleted and you had to create this one? Typos is when you make a couple of mistakes, THOSE are not typos, but a lower level of education (or does not care enough to type properly).
John Smith May 01, 2013 at 06:28 PM
Casey Anthony, OJ and the illegal trio should fry. As for illegals whether with job or without should be deported its the law. All illegals should be judged by this why do they get a free pass and legal citizens and legal immigrants have to pay for the consequences.
janice rodriguez June 07, 2013 at 03:54 AM
Fckthebs u are right but some people are arrogant and irrelevant I mean if you can sit here and comment more then three times on and artical you clearly have nothing better to do. Smh.
janice rodriguez June 07, 2013 at 03:58 AM
Just because you are a government analyst dont mean you are the brights person especially when you put youre information online. Mr. George you have four children of your own any of them could of been wrapped up in some dumb crap like this then you would of done what passed criticism on them as well? I think not.
Joe George June 07, 2013 at 04:34 PM
@Janice, when you actually learn how to write, with proper English, then you can step to me. Is it brights person or brightest person? I am critical with ALL of mine, the difference is, that I TEACH them right from wrong, and let them choose from there. My kids know, they associate with criminals or people up to no good, then that's who they are....perception is reality, but maybe I should have stupified it enough for you.
Joe George June 07, 2013 at 04:36 PM
And I like on how you commented (since deleted) and stated that it's all white people commenting on here, then realized that it's not.......maybe it is not only white people that use proper English and correct grammar......but your society or your neighborhood would like for you to believe we are all ignorant.
