The final suspect involved in a Thanksgiving Day murder four years ago has been extradited to the U.S. earlier this month after previously being arrested in El Salvador, according to authorities.

Fairfax County police said that Adonay Polanco Cabrera, 25, formerly of the Culmore area in Falls Church, arrived in the county on Aug. 18 after efforts from the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service helped track him down in El Salvador.

Polanco Cabrera was arrested in July 2018 by authorities in El Salvador, police said. Police report that he is currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and has been charged with first degree murder, burglary and grand larceny.

The arrest of Polanco Cabrera serves as the last member of the quartet that police said was responsible for the murder of 69-year-old Leif Erick Ohlsson on Nov. 24, 2016 at an apartment in the 5500 block of Seminary Road.
