FBI Releases Information on Human Remains of Israel Mejia-Martinez Recovery

During the week of July 30, 2018, members of the FBI Evidence Response Team from the Cincinnati Field Office and the Indianapolis Field Office participated in a search for human remains in a wooded area of Grassy Creek Regional Park southeast of East 38th Street and Mitthoeffer Road. The teams located and recovered human remains on August 1 and August 2, 2018.

DNA from the remains was examined by experts at the University of Indianapolis Human Identification Center. The DNA testing eliminated all other potential donors with the exception of Israel Anibal Mejia-Martinez. Mr. Mejia-Martinez’s last known address was in Usultan, El Salvador. Mr. Mejia-Martinez was believed to have been murdered approximately one year ago and buried in a shallow grave where the remains were discovered by the FBI Evidence Response Team. The remains were recovered in connection with an ongoing MS-13 investigation in the Southern District of Ohio. Anyone with information about the death of Mejia-Martinez is asked to contact the FBI at (614) 849-1765.

The FBI is appreciative of all the agencies that assisted in these recovery and identification efforts, including the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the Marion County Coroner’s Office, Indy Parks and Recreation, the Indiana State Police Laboratory, the University of Indianapolis Human Identification Center, and Ohio Search and Recovery K9s.
