If your kids attend Lewis Elementary School in Southeast Texas, extracurricular activities include MS-13 murders in a nearby field.
Four individuals have now been arrested for the murder of a rival gang member in an MS-13 linked incident after a decomposing corpse was found near the Harris County elementary school.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have placed holds on three of the suspects to be deported back to Central America if they are released from custody.
Francisco Ancheta-Aquino, a 21-yr-old El Salvador native, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder in the death of Jose Villanueza, whose body was discovered shot and hacked to death with a machete on Spring ISD property
Ancheta-Aquino confessed to his role in the killing, according to reports. He purportedly committed the murder in an attempt to elevate his status in MS-13.
If you're curious why Villanueza was targeted, apparently he made some disparaging comments about an MS-13 member's girlfriend in a rap battle, prosecutors claim.
As if this news story couldn't get any crazier, apparently Guevara and Villanueza know each other because they both worked at the same landscaping company and Guevara has mental illness or intellectual disability, according to court documents.
Two other people have been also been arrested during the past week for their purported roles in the killing: Francisco Flores-Salazar, 19, and Mario Guevara, 26, both illegal immigrants from El Salvador.
Karla Morales, an 18-yr-old from Houston, was arrested last September. The teen helped identify several suspects in the group slaying, according to court documents.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a written statement, "For months, our homicide investigators aggressively pursued all leads in this case because we all recognized there was a real possibility that these gang members would not hesitate to kill anyone they perceive as a threat."
