Three M-13 gang members were arrested in connection with the four-year killings in Long Island in April. Investigators have long suspected that the murderous street gang was behind the killings because the bodies were apparently found by a sickle, the favorite gang.
The gang members accused Alexis Hernandez, Santis Lionel Ortiz Flores and Omar Antonio Filata of killing four male teenagers found in the central Asleb park. The three suspects were arrested on Thursday (July 13) by the task force of the Long Island Task Force, the New York Post reported.
The Newsday newspaper said every man was charged with murder. Hernández admitted he was not guilty on Monday (17 July) at the Federal District Court in Central Eslib. It was not clear how the other two men called. The four victims who suffered “great shock” throughout their bodies were identified as 16-year-old Justin Lefikora, 18-year-old Jorge Teger, 18-year-old Jefferson Villalobos and Michael Lopez Penigas, 20 years old.
The Tigre family claimed that the high school student was targeted by the gang after trying to get rid of his girlfriend in the gang. Teger’s mother told reporters that his decision to avoid the gang nuisance members. “They harassed him at school,” she said. “On Sunday, his uncle said,” They annoy me. ” MS-13, also known as La Mara Salvatrusha, is believed to have killed high school girls in Long Island in September. The girls were violently attacked with bats and baseballs while walking across the neighboring town of Brentwood.
Eight members of the M-13 group were arrested on 2 March for the killing of 15-year-old Nisa Menezes and 16-year-old Kouevas. The US Attorney’s Office says the M-13 boasts 6,000 members in at least 46 states and the District of Columbia. Another 30,000 members work internationally, particularly in El Salvador, Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.
