Family members ID teens found dead in suburban NY park

Family members ID teens found dead in suburban NY park

Police on Long Island, New York, have discovered the bodies of four young people authorities suspect may have been killed by members of the global MS-13 gang, officials said Thursday.

Police wouldn't say if the deaths are gang related, but a major investigation is underway.

Last month, authorities announced the arrests of more than a dozen gang members, including some charged with killing two high school girls with baseball bats and machetes as they walked near their home.

"The disregard for the pain, fear, and suffering the families and community will experience is uncalled for", she said in a post on Facebook.

A day earlier Sini said the tactics employed in the killings — using sharp instruments and extreme violence — were consistent with the gang, which has been gaining a foothold on Long Island for years.

The commissioner put the quadruple killings in stark terms, calling the effort to combat those kinds of crimes "a long-term war", Newsday reported.

The news conference came hours after distraught family and friends of two missing Long Island teens - Jorge Tigre, 18, and Justin Llivicura, 16 - came to the crime scene, seeking information from investigators.

The four men who were found brutally murdered in a Long Island park Wednesday night have been identified, as their devastated families mourn the loss of their loved ones.

'We are not releasing the date or time they were killed, but these homicides occurred within the past few days. The posse, which had been roving in a vehicle looking for gang enemies, attacked when they came across her walking with Nisa Mickens, 15, in the street.

After all, MS-13 - notorious for its elaborate tattoos and its unremitting violence - has perhaps 70,000 members all told.

The killings are consisted with that of the MS-13 gang, according to local police, and offer a "stark reminder" that the community continues to be at was with the gang.

The 18-year-old was one of six children in his family.

The FBI is helping in Suffolk, but the feds have been on the case as MS-13's tentacles spread across the nation. "I don't know if this is my son or no".

Prosecutors said Kayla Cuevas, 16, was targeted last summer by a group of four gang members because she had been feuding with MS-13 members at school and on social media. He would not comment on whether the teenager was among those killed.
