“Maryland police say five MS-13 gang members stabbed one of their own 100 times and drove the body to Virginia where they set it on fire,” reports Fox News. “The victim of the brutal attack was a 16-year-old high school student. Cops identified Jacson Pineda-Chicas this week after releasing a photo of a tattoo on his left arm, Tribune Media reported.”

The victim's mother said when gang members accused him of talking to police they threatened to kill his family and he told them to kill him instead.
