WOODBRIDGE, Va. (WUSA9) — WOODBRIDGE, Va. (WUSA9) - Nearly two months after the body of a man was found inside a burning car in Va., police have identified the victim.
Wednesday, the victim was identified as 25-year-old Santos Arquimidis Sorto, of Woodbridge.
On March 14, police said Sorto was reported missing by family members after he did not show up for work and was unable to be reached.

Police said the victim did not know the suspects and is not a member of any gang.
Manuel Enrique Robles Lopez, 21, Erick Alexander Contreras Navarro, 23, Denis Ludwin Espinal Alvares, 19, and a 17-year-old male were arrested in connection to the murder.
