WASHINGTON | Several members of the gang of ultra-violent original salvadoran MS-13, held in contempt by Donald Trump, have brutally murdered a man larded up of more than 100 stabbings in the suburbs of Washington, says the local police.

Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, 19, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder after detectives received information it was committed by MS-13 members.

Officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a statement saying "Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, a citizen and national of El Salvador, is illegally in the U.S. and now in immigration proceedings".

The victim, whose identity has yet to be confirmed, was stabbed, decapitated, dismembered, and had 'his heart had been excised from his chest and thrown into the grave, ' police say.

Investigators believe Lopez-Abrego was the first attacker to stab the victim in the chest with a 15-inch knife.

A police investigation linked the slaying to the MS-13 street gang and led to the November 11 arrest of Lopez-Abrego in North Carolina, the release says. The informant said he was part of the killing and led detectives to the gravesite on September 5.


Lopez-Abrego helped dig a grave for the victim and used a walkie-talkie to tell the other gang members when the victim had arrived, the informant told police. He had short, dark brown hair. He also wore a rosary necklace, police stated.

A man arrested in North Carolina and suspected of being a member of the transnational gang MS-13 is charged with killing an unidentified man police say may have been from Annapolis.

Earlier, last month, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, had declared the country is organizing task forces to destroy MS-13 "just like we took Al Capone off the streets". Police said the missing tooth would have been obvious when he was speaking or smiling.

At the time of the killing, the victim was wearing a gray sweatshirt with "First United Methodist Church Laurel" written on the upper left side.

Law enforcement, looking for a different MS-13 suspect from Maryland - Milton Portillo-Rodriguez, accused of a murder in Anne Arundel County - tracked that man to Avery County, North Carolina.
