Gang Members Charged in 2009 Hartford Double Murder



    Four people have been arrested in connection with a double murder in Hartford in October 2009, three of whom have been identified as members of the "Los Solido" gang, according to Hartford police.

    Angel Carrasquillo, Josue Burgos, Luis A. Quintero and Carrasquillo’s girlfriend, Nicole Rodrick, were arrested after a years-long investigation into the murder of 23-year-old Luis Rodriguez, known as “Whiteboy,” and 32-year-old Leida Franqui, known as “Flaca.”

    The victims were shot and killed in the area of 44 Whitmore Street on Oct. 14, 2009, according to police.

    Authorities obtained arrest warrants Feb. 27 after more than four years of investigating.

    Police said Carrasquillo, Burgos and Quintero were members of "Los Solido." The three men were each charged with two counts of murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder. Their bonds were originally set at $1 million each.

    Rodrick was charged with hindering prosecution. Her bond was set at $250,000.

    Quintero and Rodrick were taken into custody Feb. 28 by the Hartford Police Fugitive Task Force and Intelligence Division. They appeared in court on Monday.

    Bond for Quintero was set at $2 million and he is due back in court on March 24.

    Bond for Rodrick is set at $250,000. She is due back in court on March 17. She was also ordered not to contact the victims' families if she is able to post bond.

    Carrasquillo and Burgos are in prison for other crimes.

    Police said arrest warrants are sealed to protect witnesses.
