“The victim has been stabbed over one-hundred times, decapitated, dismembered, and his heart had been excised from his chest and thrown into the grave.”
Nearly a dozen members of the hyperviolent MS-13 street gang lured a man into a park and stabbed him over 100 times, cut his head off, and cut his heart out of his chest and threw it on the grave they buried him in, authorities say.
Law enforcement officials in North Carolina recently arrested Miguel “Timido” Angel Lopez-Abrego, 19, who was extradited to Montgomery County, Maryland, where he made his first court appearance on Wednesday.
According to court documents, another member of MS-13 identified Lopez-Abrego as being involved in the gruesome murder:
On 09/05/2017 [unnamed MS-13 member] took MCPD detectives to the gravesite located in the park and he further described the circumstances of the murder and detailed the choking, stabbing, decapitating, and dismembering the victim’s body before dumping it into a pre-dug hole.
[Unnamed MS-13 member] identified one of the other participants in the murder as an adult male he knew as Miguel and whose nickname was “Timido.”
