4 bodies in NY park are apparent homicide victims

4 bodies in NY park are apparent homicide victims

The bodies of four males were discovered in a Long Island park late Wednesday, police say.

Police have said they found the four victims Wednesday evening in a wooded area south of the soccer fields across from the Central Islip Recreation Center on Clayton Street, but did not say why they searched the area.

They appeared to have been killed with a sharp-edged instrument, in a manner consistent with the modus operandi of the violent MS-13 gang, Police Commissioner Timothy Sini said at a news conference Thursday. "He kept his distance from them", she said. Brutally. It wasn't like they shot him and left it.

Sini made his declaration after the corpses of four young men turned up in a Central Islip park - with a video of the bodies sent to the girlfriend of one teen.

Known MS-13 member, Jose Pena-Hernandez, 18, was found dead in October, according to investigators.

A judge is set to rule on whether a Virginia father killed his year-old son in an effort to collect on more than $500,000 in life insurance. The site where the bodies were found is just blocks away from the federal courthouse where the alleged killers are being prosecuted.

William, 21, told the New York Post that friend, Alex Ruiz, was 'a member of MS-13. "I don't know if this is my son or no".

"They'll kill anybody", said Isaiah Vogelfang, whose own brother, Michael Johnson, was allegedly killed by MS-13 members past year.

The posse — roving in a vehicle looking for gang enemies — attacked when they came across her walking with Nisa Mickens, 15, in the street.

MS-13 uses violence to intimidate rival gangs, using weapons ranging from firearms to machetes. Some of the MS-13 gang members reportedly infiltrated the ranks of the thousands of unaccompanied minors who walked across the border from Mexico during the past several years. "It's all hands on deck", Sini said Thursday.

Police said the killings look like the work of MS-13.

"They engage in acts of violence; they engage in acts of savagery against folks who can't defend themselves as well as others in our community", Sini said Friday.

But local families say they are still too scared to venture out at night because the gang problem has spiraled out of control in recent years.
