MS-13 Members Being Charged by Justice Department Reportedly Cut Out Heart of Rival Gang Member


Twenty-two members of the notorious MS-13 gang are being brought up on charges by the Justice Department of either first-degree murder or racketeering in connection with seven murders in the Los Angeles area, according to an indictment unsealed on Tuesday.

According to The Daily Caller:

The indictment, which was unsealed Monday, focused on members of a Los Angeles-area subset of MS-13 known as the Fulton clique. Prosecutors called the San Fernando Valley-based gang a 'particularly violent subset' of MS-13 that 'has recently seen an influx of young immigrants from Central America.'

The most notorious charge being levied against this subset of the notorious gang are the allegations that they viciously dismembered a rival gang member with machetes, throwing his remains into a canyon once the deed was done. Not before, however, “cut[ting] the heart out of the victim’s body…” 

Despite the grisly nature of the deplorable group, Nick Hanna, the U.S. Attorney in LA, described the investigation as an unmitigated success:

We have now taken off the streets nearly two dozen people associated with the most violent arm of MS-13 in Los Angeles, where the gang is believed to have killed 24 people over the past two years… This investigation has been an unqualified success. The collaborative law enforcement effort solved several murder cases and dealt a severe blow to members of the gang who engaged in acts of brutality not seen in the region for over 20 years.
