From Daily Mail: Six illegal
immigrants aliens, who allegedly stabbed a Maryland man to death in July, have been identified as MS-13 gang members by the US and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Jonathan Escobar-Hernandez, 20, Marlon Fabian-Flores, 20, Edwin Edgardo Garcia-Martir, 18, Hugo Portillo-Chavez, 31, Jose Fausto Rivera-Coreas, 19, and 20-year-old Odaliz Rosas-Yanez were all arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the murder of 21-year-old Daniel Alejandro Alvarado Cuellar.
Detectives from the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit also said they arrested Leonel Alexander Velasquez-Hernadez, 16, who has been charged as an adult, over Cuellar’s murder. Cuellar’s body was found in the grass near an apartment building on Loch Raven Boulevard on July 31.
Authorities said they determined that Cuellar was the intended victim of a planned murder involving the seven suspects, who are being held without bail in the Baltimore County Detention Center following bail review hearings.
All of the six illegal
immigrants aliens were identified as MS-13 members in an ICE gang database, an ICE spokeswoman told Fox News.
The spokeswoman said ICE issued six immigration detainers.
Officials said five of the suspects are Salvadoran and one is Mexican.
A motive for Cuellar’s murder remains under investigation but authorities believe the victim was killed due to a war between two rival Latino street gangs, the 18th Street and MS-13, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Cuellar had been seen making a hand gesture that was believed to be ‘indicative of an affiliation with the 18th Street,’ detectives said.
