4 bodies in NY park are apparent homicide victims

4 bodies in NY park are apparent homicide victims

Police say the bodies of the victims, who ranged in age from 16 to 18 (media outlets have reported some discrepancies in the ages), were found in Recreation Village Town Park in Central Islip on Wednesday night.

Police say the bodies of four apparent homicide victims have been found in a Long Island park, east of New York City.

The distraught family and friends of two missing Long Island teens fear the boys have been killed by MS-13 gang members - and that their loved ones are among the four bodies found overnight in a park.

The motive for the murders is unknown at this time.

"They'll kill anybody", said Isaiah Vogelfang, whose own brother, Michael Johnson, was allegedly killed by MS-13 members a year ago. Police believe all four were murdered where they were found. And make no mistake about it.

MS-13 is a "transnational" street gang pinned for numerous crimes across the country, prompting the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2004 to start a MS-13 National Gang Task Force.

Sini said the exact date and time of the killings won't be released publicly, but that the four homicides occurred at the same time "within the past few days" at the park. The victims were identified by family members as 16-year-old Justin Llivicura, cousins Michael Banegas and Jefferson Villalobos, both 18, and Jorge Tigre.

It appears Pomeranz has put his spring training troubles behind him as he allowed only four hits and walked one while fanning six. When Wright is at the top of his game, hitting his knuckleball is more hard than trying to slice a mosquito in half with a sword.

"This is a long-term war", he said, invoking his past declarations of going to battle against the violent gang in Suffolk.

Two of the students - Nisa Mickens, 15, and Kayla Cuevas, 16 - were beaten with baseball bats and a machete in September in nearby Brentwood.

"He kept his distance from them", his sister Monica, 20, told the Daily News as their mother wept Friday inside their home. She said a friend who escaped told them about the attackers. It's all hands on deck until we solve these murders'. "They're tougher than any people you've ever met", he said. He is from Florida, and was in the park hanging out with his cousin Banegas from Brentwood, when they were killed along with two others. MS-13 members are suspected in all of the deaths. Pena-Hernandez was reportedly murdered for violating the gang's protocol.

Suffolk Police are offering a $25,000 reward for any information regarding the murders.

Authorities are yet to reveal whether the bodies discovered on Wednesday are linked to the previous youths' deaths.
