Bizarre … Columbia, MD Mall Gunman Darion Marcus Aguilar was Reported Missing Prior to His Murder/Suicide Saturday and Shooting Deaths of Brianna Benlolo & Tyler Johnson

Talk about bizarre, man reported missing after case turned into a murder/suicide.

19 year old Darion Marcus Aguilar, a College Park, MD resident was reported missing at about 1:40 pm on Saturday, January 25, 2014. However, earlier in the day the Howard County Police had a much bigger incident occurring as a gunman walked into the Columbia Mall in Columbia, Maryland and started shooting. In the end, two were dead, Brianna Benlolo, 21, of College Park, MD, and Tyler Johnson, 25, of Ellicott City, MD.  Also, the gunman turned the shotgun on himself and committed suicide.


Darion Marcus Aguilar

Police said Sunday they received a missing persons report for Darion Marcus Aguilar at about 1:40 p.m. Saturday. Howard County Police say Aguilar went into the Mall in Columbia about 11:15 a.m. Saturday, armed with a shotgun and homemade explosives. He fatally shot two store employees before killing himself.

A Prince George’s officer went to Aguilar’s home in College Park to speak with his mother about 5 p.m. Saturday and saw Aguilar’s journal. The portion the officer read made him concerned for Aguilar’s safety.

However, as police were trying to determine the identity of the mall shooter, they were also investigating the report that Darion Marcus Aguilar. The police pinged the phone of the missing 19 year old and would learn that it was coming from the Columbia Mall. Tragically, the police would then discover in a bizarre twist of events that the missing man and the individual who had killed two people at the mall at about 11:15 a.m. before shooting and killing himself were the same person, Darion Aguilar.

As PGPD tracked the missing person’s phone, they discovered it was pinging from Columbia Mall. The missing person and the yet-unidentified deceased shooter turned out to be the same person, Darion Aguilar, 19.

Aguilar’s mother had called about 1:40 p.m. from their home in the 4700 block of Hollywood Road in College Park to report him missing. An investigator talked with the mother and read Aguilar’s journal, which had wording that raised concern for his safety, police say.

UPDATE I: Cops – Mall gunman expressed ‘general unhappiness’ in journal.

Police state at this point they have no motive and that there was no known connection between the shooter and his victims. Sometimes you don’t need a motive, sometimes these things happen because you have a depressed individual who has crossed the line of no return. You cannot rationalize the irrational.

He added that police served a search and seizure warrant at the shooter’s house and retrieved documents, computers and other potential evidence, including a journal.

In that journal, Aguilar “does express some general unhappiness with his life, but I really don’t have any other information about that now,” the chief said.

Urgent Search for the ‘Black Widow’ Suicide Bomber, Ruzanna Ibragimova in Sochi Ahead of Olympics (Update: As Many as 4 ‘Black Widows’ May be in Sochi)

Be on the look out for the ‘Black Widow’ in Sochi …

Russian security services and police are looking for Ruzana Ibragimova, the ‘Black Widow’ suicide bomber, also known as Salima, the 22 year-old widow of an Islamic militant killed by Russian security forces last year.
Russian authorities distributed in pictures of  the ‘Black Widow,’ Ruzana Ibragimova.  The posters describe her as having a limp in her right leg, a left arm that does not bend at the elbow and a 4-inch scar on her cheek. It is believed that she may already be in Sochi. Now NBC News is reporting that there may be as many as four “black widows” dispatched to carry out terrorist attacks related to the Winter Olympics. It is believed that these terrorists may have already breached the so-called “ring of steel”.

Things that Make You Go Hmm … Just curious, there was discussion ahead of the Olympics that they should be boycotted by the USA because of Russia’s laws against gays, yet it sounds like attending the Sochi Olympics is like playing terrorism “Russian” roulette and not a word about not sending athletes for their own protection.


Flyer handed out by Russian Authorities – ‘Black Widow’ – Ruzanna Ibragimova

ABC News:

Police in Sochi have launched an urgent search for a possible female suicide bomber who may have already made it past the ring of security set up for the Olympic Games.

Hotel employees in Sochi told ABC News that posters with pictures and descriptions of a 22-year-old woman from nearby Dagestan were distributed over the weekend by authorities and a similar flyer was also seen posted at Sochi’s airport.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Olympic Committee reacted to the revelation by saying that the safety of Team USA is their “top priority.”

“As is always the case, we are working with the U.S. Department of State, the local organizers and the relevant law enforcement agencies in an effort to ensure that our delegation and other Americans traveling to Sochi are safe,” spokesperson Patrick Sandusky said.

The woman featured on the wanted posters is identified as Ruzanna Ibragimova, using the nickname Salima, the widow of a militant reportedly killed in a shoot-out with police last year in Dagestan.

She is described as being affiliated with the Caucasus Emirate, the terror group led by Doku Umarov that has threatened attacks against the Winter Games in Sochi.

Ibragimova is described as having a 10 centimeter scar across the left cheek, a pronounced limp, and a stiff left arm that doesn’t bend at the elbow.

VIDEO – CNN: Hunt for “black widow” bomber in Sochi.

This announcement comes on the foot-heals of the VIDEO tape received by the two individuals that were terrorist bombers who promised to a “surprise package” to be delivered during the Sochi Winter Olympics. The real question is, are the Olympics safe from terror and how in the hell was Sochi ever given the Olympics in the first place?

Not to worry, Barack Obama thinks that this is just the jayvee.

UPDATE I: Russian police kill Islamist militant leader before Olympics.

Police have killed a senior Islamist militant in a shootout in Russia’s North Caucasus ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, the National Anti-terror Committee said on Tuesday.

The shooting of Eldar Magatov, a suspect in numerous attacks on Russian targets, at a house where he had taken refuge in the Dagestan region was part of an intensifying security clampdown as the Games approach.

A manhunt is underway for a Deltona mother and her two children who went missing after a domestic-violence incident.

“Keep your eyes open and please look for them,” said Emilio Suarez, father of the missing 28-year-old mother Yessenia Suarez. “Life is not the same without them.”

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a missing child alert for 9-year-old Thalio Otto and 8-year-old Michael Otto Thursday morning. Authorities said the children could be with their mother.

Volusia County deputies are still at Suarez’s home searching for clues that will lead them to the family.

Deputies started exploring the house Wednesday after relatives of Suarez reported her missing around 9:20 a.m. because they were worried that they had not heard from her.

Suarez’s husband, Luis Toledo, 31, showed up at her job at American K-9 Detection Services in Lake Mary on Tuesday about 1:30 p.m., started a fight and slapped her cheek, an arrest report states.

UPDATE I: 2 children missing from Volusia County.

They may be with their 28-year-old mother Yessenia Suarez, the news release from the Department of Law Enforcement said.

Thalia has black hair and brown eyes and is 3 feet tall.

Otto is 3-foot-4 with black hair and brown eyes.

Suarez is 5-foot-3 and weighs 130 pounds.

UPDATE II: Authorities say missing Florida mom and her two children are dead, husband (Luis Toeldo) person of interest in case.

Sad news to report, but not unexpected when the facts of the story were first reported. 9 year old Thalio Otto,  8 year old Michael Otto and their mom,  28 year old Yessenia Suarez are all considered deceased by authorities, however, their bodies have not yet been found. Luis Toledo is considered a person of interest in the triple murder.

Gary Davidson with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office tells MyFoxOrlando.com authorities have determined the three are dead but their bodies have not been located.

“The search for the victims’ bodies and the investigation into their deaths is still ongoing, and no one has been charged at this time,” Davidson said.

Police are considering her husband, Luis Toeldo, 31, a possible person of interest in the case.

UPDATE III: Husband of Suarez and sole person of interest in the case attempts Suicide in Jail.

Of course he did, that is what cowards do.

UPDATE IV: Search continues for remains of Deltona mom, kids … remains found not that of missing mom and children.

Authorities said they found remains in a wooded area off U.S. Highway 17-92 while searching on Sunday for a missing Deltona mother and her two children.

The remains are of an adult, said Shannon Cordingly, a Sanford police spokeswoman. But it’s likely they’re not of 28-year-old Yessenia Suarez, who has been missing for about a week, Cordingly added. She said the medical examiner still needs to conduct an autopsy.

“The skeletal remains have been there for a long time,” she said. “It was bones we found.”

Hmm, I wonder what missing person’s remains police might have just found in the search for  Thalio Otto, Michael Otto and  Yessenia Suarez?

If anyone has any information about Suarez or her children can call the Sheriff’s Office at 386-736-5999 or 911.
