It has been reported that about 12 gang members of MS-13 lured a man into the Wheaton Regional Park and proceeded to stab him over 100 times, decapitate him and then cut his heart out; throwing it into a shallow grave they buried him in, according to authorities.
Officials in North Carolina have Miguel “Timido” Angel Lopez-Abrego, 19, in custody. Timido was extradited to Montgomery County, Maryland, where his first court appearance occurred on Wednesday.
Court document reveal that a member of MS-13 identified Timido as a person involved in the violent murder:
On 09/05/2017 [unnamed MS-13 member] took MCPD detectives to the gravesite located in the park and he further described the circumstances of the murder and detailed the choking, stabbing, decapitating, and dismembering the victim’s body before dumping it into a pre-dug hole.
[Unnamed MS-13 member] identified one of the other participants in the murder as an adult male he knew as Miguel and whose nickname was “Timido.”
The victim has been stabbed over one-hundred times, decapitated, dismembered, and his heart had been excised from his chest and thrown into the grave.

According to the Washington Post Timido is from El Salvador and is inside the United States illegally:
Lopez-Abrego did not speak during the court appearance. Officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a statement saying “Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, a citizen and national of El Salvador, is illegally in the U.S. and currently in immigration proceedings. On Nov. 4, ICE lodged a detainer on Mr. Lopez-Abrego with the Avery County Sheriff’s Department in North Carolina after his arrest by local authorities.”
The gruesome murder was committed inside Montgomery County, Maryland, which is known territory for MS-13 gang members, due to it’s sanctuary county status. This means the county does not comply with ICE authorities to remove illegals.
“In May, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said that a whistleblower came forward and provided documents that proved that the Obama administration knowingly admitted teen MS-13 gang members into the United States and sent them to communities throughout the U.S.,” the Daily Wire reports.
