Quadruple murder on Long Island linked to MS-13 gang

The bodies of four men were found in a Central Islip park, Suffolk County Police said on Thursday morning.

Sini also said that police are investigating whether gang MS-13 were behind the murders.

Sini said the the department, in partnership with Suffolk County Crime Stoppers, is posting a $25,000 "fast cash reward" for any information that leads to the arrest of the perpetrator or perpetrators of the murders.

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

He did not definitively say the killings were the work of the MS-13 gang but said the tactics - using sharp instruments and extreme violence - were consistent with the gang, which has been gaining a foothold on Long Island for years. Investigators are considering the possibility that the men were killed by members of the notorious MS-13 gang.

The acquaintance "called saying that my brother was here, dead", Tigre, 21, said.

BAY SHORE, N.Y. (AP) — Four young people found brutally slain near a soccer field in a park as part of a suspected gang killing were a 16-year-old, two 18-year-olds, including one visiting from Florida, and a 20-year-old man, police said.

Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers tells Fox 5 News that the victims, "suffered significant trauma through their bodies". "We are working closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to solve these homicides".

Tigre's family tells News 12 that he was an honor roll student who sought to distance himself from anyone at school associated with MS-13, but that the gang apparently targeted him anyway.

William added that he had checked George's computer and found messages from him that said, 'I don't want to do these things anymore.

The FBI is working with authorities to find the gang members responsible for this week's slayings. "I don't know if this is my son or no". He would not comment on whether the teenager was among those killed.

Anthony Rubenstein, a 29-year-old electrician who graduated from Brentwood High School and lives near where the bodies were found, shook his head in frustration about the killings.

One of the other girls, who in an online post said "we gonna get her. she's scared", and kicked Joyner-Francis while she was on the floor struggling to defend herself, also was convicted of conspiracy.

Four members were arrested last month in connection to a recent spree of teenage killings in the Brentwood area in 2016, according to police.

It's now a major global criminal enterprise with tens of thousands of members in several Central American countries and many USA states.
