EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. – Just hours after the sheriff’s office said it was seeking another suspect in the murder of two Colorado Springs teens, it announced it had arrested a sixth suspect in relation to the case.

Alander Jordon Wilson, 43, was arrested Tuesday and charged with attempting to influence a public official in relation to the murder cases of Natalie Partida, 16, and Derek Greer, 15, who were found dead south of Fountain on March 12.

It's unclear exactly what Wilson did to warrant the charge, as the cases are still sealed.

Hours earlier, the sheriff’s office had said it was seeking another suspect in the case: Carlos Daniel Meza, aka “Tink,” is wanted on weapons charges in the case. He has yet to be arrested.

Wilson’s arrest was the sixth in the case. Gustavo Antonio Marquez, 19, was arrested March 19 and charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of child abuse resulting in death

And last Saturday, the sheriff’s office arrested four others on various charges relating to the teens’ deaths, including murder, kidnapping, robbery and child abuse.

Meza remains at large. The sheriff’s office advises anyone who sees him not to approach him and to instead call 911.
