Police have previously said that as many as 10 MS-13 members lured the victim to the park, using walkie-talkies to communicate with each other. They say the victim was ambushed, choked, stabbed more than 100 times, decapitated and had his heart torn out of his chest and buried with him.
Authorities say that Lopez-Abrego and Rosa-Moreno were full-fledged MS-13 members, while Giron-Jimenez was an accomplice to the murder.
Court documents, which cited interviews with an informant, say Rosa-Moreno helped dig the victim’s graved, stabbed him multiple times, and helped cut up the body with a machete.
Authorities have not disclosed a motive for the killing, which they believe to have taken place sometime this past spring.
Officials said the body was sent to the medical examiner and they were still attempting to positively identify the remains. The victim was described as a Hispanic adult male, standing about 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 126 pounds with short brown hair. Officials said he also had a missing tooth in his lower teeth that may have been visible.
Police have also released photos of the clothes and rosary the victim was wearing when he was killed. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Montgomery County Police Department’s Major Crimes Division at (240) 773-5070.
