11 MS-13 Gang Members Face Possibility of Death Penalty in Kidnapping and Murder of Fairfax County Teens
The Department of Justice announced Thursday in a press release that 11 members of the El Salvadoran gang MS-13 were indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with death-eligible offenses for their role in the kidnapping and murder of two underage teens in 2016.
According to allegations in the indictment, in August and September 2016, Edenilson Misael Alfaro, aka “Lil Sicario,” originally from El Salvador and holding a high-ranking position in MS-13, authorized numerous lower-ranking members of MS-13’s Park View Locos Salvatrucha (PVLS) clique in Virginia to lure, kidnap, and murder two juveniles, E.E.E.M. and S.A.A.T.
According to the indictment, Alfaro was notified in August 2016 that E.E.E.M. posted a photograph of a masked man to his Facebook account with the number 666 superimposed above his head. Perceiving the Facebook post as evidence that E.E.E.M. was a member of the rival 18th Street gang, Alfaro authorized and directed members of the PVLS clique to kill E.E.E.M. Today’s indictment charges Alfaro and six other members and associates of the PVLS clique for their role in luring E.E.E.M. to Holmes Run Stream Valley Park in Fairfax County where E.E.E.M. was attacked and murdered. The indictment further alleges that the defendants videotaped E.E.E.M.’s murder to prove to gang leadership that the murder had been completed and that they were worthy of promotion within the gang.
According to the indictment, in September 2016, Elmer Zelaya Martinez, aka “Killer,” originally from El Salvador and holding a high-ranking position in the PVLS clique, reported to Alfaro his belief that S.A.A.T. was cooperating with law enforcement. Alfaro authorized and directed members of the PVLS clique to kill S.A.A.T. Today’s indictment charges all 11 defendants for their role in luring S.A.A.T. to Holmes Run Stream Valley Park, where S.A.A.T. was attacked and murdered. The indictment further alleges that the defendants videotaped S.A.A.T.’s murder as well to prove to gang leadership that the murder had been completed and that they were worthy of promotion in the gang.
All hands were on deck to catch the Satanic El Salvadoran MS-13 murderers.
The case was also investigated as part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force’s (OCDETF) Operation Devil’s Playground. The OCDETF program is a federal multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional task force that supplies supplemental federal funding to federal and state agencies involved in the identification, investigation, and prosecution of major drug trafficking organizations. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, and money laundering organizations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply, the DOJ said in its press release.
FBI agents, ICE agents, the US Marshal’s Service and various local police departments also provided assistance during the investigation.
Democrat lawmakers such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) want to abolish ICE and give more sanctuary to illegal alien monsters like MS-13 gang members who are murdering and raping teenagers. Let that sink in.
The kidnapping and murdering of teens must be the “spark of divinity” Nancy Pelosi was talking about when she defended MS-13 killers.
