MS-13 gang 'beheads man and rips out his heart'

Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, along with nine other MS-13 members, stabbed the victim more than 100 times, decapitated and dismembered him, and ripped his heart out before throwing him into a grave in Wheaton Regional Park, documents say.

Court documents released Wednesday in the arrest of Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, 19, on suspicion of murder revealed the gory details of the slaying, reported NBC4.

The informant led police to the grave on September 5 and "detailed the choking, stabbing, decapitating and dismembering [of] the Victim's body", according to a police affidavit.

The informant told police that Lopez-Abrego helped dig the grave, waited for the victim's arrival, and was the first to stab the victim "when he thrust a 15-inch knife through the victim's chest".

'On November 4, ICE lodged a detainer on Mr. Lopez-Abrego with the Avery County Sheriff's Department in North Carolina after his arrest by local authorities'.

The victim was likely killed between December 2016 and March 2017, according to police.

Lopez-Abrego denied any involvement in the crime in initial interviews but fled after an interrogation.

The gang members allegedly lured the victim, a Hispanic man believed to be from Annapolis, to the area using walkie-talkie radios to communicate.

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". He was also discovered with a missing tooth, which officials said may suggest he was either speaking or smiling at the time of his death.

"The body was exhumed and the condition of the victim's remains were consistent with the injuries [the informant] said were inflicted upon him".

Nowadays the gang has at least 10,000 members across 46 states in the U.S. and more than 30,000 worldwide, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Treasury Department. He had short, dark brown hair.

The brutal murder at the Wheaton park is a part of a resurgence of killings in the county that police and prosecutors attribute to MS-13. Investigators say the victim wore a gray sweatshirt with the words "First United Methodist Church Laurel".
