Six suspects have been arrested in the killing of a Wildomar man whose body was found near Lake Elsinore last month, authorities said Thursday.

On Aug. 29, authorities said four suspects were identified in his killing with three of them taken into custody — Christina Meza 30, Christian Meza, 28, and Alejandro Villegas, 25. All are from Lake Elsinore and were were arrested on suspicion of murder with allegations of gang ties, kidnapping and torture, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

A fourth suspect identified at the time, 43-year-old Roberto Camacho, was arrested outside Riverside County and later brought back into the area to face potential prosecution.

The last two suspects — Melissa Unger of Lake Elsinore and Tyrone Jones of Yorba Linda — were arrested this month.
