Recovered Human Remains (Update/Arrest) - Annapolis
On Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at approximately 9:00 a.m., acting on a tip, members of the Anne Arundel County Police Department located human remains. The remains were located in a wooded area near Open View Lane, Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Anne Arundel County Police Homicide Unit Detectives responded to the scene and assumed command of the investigation.
The remains were recovered and transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) in Baltimore. Preliminary examination by the OCME indicated the remains were that of a young adult male with evidence of trauma and the manner of death being homicide. The Anne Arundel County Police Latent Print Section was able to positively identify the remains as Neris Goivani Bonilla-Palacios a seventeen year old male from 600 block of Severn Island Court, Annapolis, Maryland.
Since the discovery of Neris Bonilla-Palacios body, homicide detectives investigated several leads in the case and have identified a second suspect as being 22 year-old Brandon A. Recinos-Guardado. Homicide detectives obtained an arrest warrant and on July 10, 2018, Brandon Recinos- Guardado was issued a detainer as he was currently incarcerated in Louisiana. On Monday, July 16, 2018 Brandon Recinos- Guardado was extradited back to Maryland and served his arrest warrant charging him with the first and second degree murder and related charges of Neris Bonilla-Palacios. He is currently being held without bond in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.
This is the second arrest made in this case. On June 18, 2018, 17 year-old Marcos Antonio Melendez-Gamez was also arrested and charged in the murder. This remains a very active investigation and the Anne Arundel County Police is asking anyone with information to call the Anne Arundel County Homicide Unit at 410-222-4731.
