LI Gang Killings: 4 More Murders Shake Up Community

The MS-13 gang, also called Mara Salvatrucha, is believed to have been founded as a neighborhood street gang in Los Angeles in the mid-1980s by immigrants fleeing a civil war in El Salvador.

Meyers declined to comment on whether the killings of the four men were gang-related.

The killings are consistent with the "modus operandi" of the MS-13 gang, and offer a "stark reminder" that the community continues to be at was with the gang, police said at an afternoon news conference.

The distraught family and friends of two missing Long Island teens fear the boys have been killed by MS-13 gang members - and that their loved ones are among the four bodies found overnight in a park.

"This is a long-term war". This is one incident, ' Commissioner Tim Sini, Suffolk County Police Department said. And make no mistake about it.

The 18-year-old was one of four young men brutally executed near a Central Islip park, leaving his heartbroken mother and sister to explain how the youth could not escape the gangbangers of MS-13. NBC New York reports half his face was missing when his body was found. Banegas, Villalobos's cousin, was reportedly suffocated with a plastic bag.

The victims have not yet been identified: Two of the victims were 18 years old; one was 20, and one was 16.

The body of Oscar Acosta, 19, was also discovered that month, and the body of Miguel Garcia MorĂ¡n, 15, not long after that, according to police. The girls were attacked with a machete and baseball bats as they walked through the neighbouring town of Brentwood in September.

Tigre said he spoke to investigators at the scene, but he did not get any information from them.

'He called me, the friend in MS-13, he called me last night at 6:30 and told me my brother is here, ' William said on Thursday.

The discovery comes six weeks after a group of MS-13 gang members were indicted for the murder of two teenagers and a fellow gang member in nearby Brentwood, according to the news site. Pena-Hernandez was reportedly murdered for violating the gang's protocol. Crime Stoppers is offering a fast cash reward of $25,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

Authorities are yet to reveal whether the bodies discovered on Wednesday are linked to the previous youths' deaths.
