Suffolk County police Commissioner Timothy Sini says the four are 18-year-old Jefferson Villalobos, of Pompano (PAHM'-puh-noh), Florida; 20-year-old Michael Lopez Banegas, of Brentwood; 18-year-old Jorge Tigre, of Bellport; and 16-year-old Justin Llivicura, of East Patchogue (PACH'-awg). NBC New York reports half his face was missing when his body was found. Banegas, Villalobos's cousin, was reportedly suffocated with a plastic bag.

Sini said the four were killed in one incident and the murders happened within the last few days-although he declined to release more exact details. The boys were beaten to death, then mutilated with hatchets. The victims had suffered "significant trauma". Brutally. It wasn't like they shot him and left it.

"Today marks the beginning of healing for the families and the community", Suffolk County Police Commissioner Tim Sini told Fox News at the time. "This is a long-term war and make no mistake about it - it's a war".

Police believe members of the worldwide gang MS-13 are behind the murders.

A DE judge on Thursday convicted a 17-year-old girl of criminally negligent homicide after a school bathroom fight that left a 16-year-old classmate dead.

Sini said, "This is certainly a reminder of how violent they are, that they're still here". After Llivicura's girlfriend had received the shocking video, she called his parents, who in turn alerted the police.

John Clarke, beloved Down Under for his satire, dies at 68
He had "an incalculable gift" for comedy, said Max Gillies, for whom Clarke wrote The Gillies Report in 1984. Clarke also leaves grandchildren Claudia and Charles and son-in-law Stewart Thorn.

Suffolk County is beleaguered by violence from MS-13. His cousin, who didn't want to be identified, said Llidicura told him Wednesday he was going to the park. 'So they called his phone multiple times.

But local families say they are still too scared to venture out at night because the gang problem has spiraled out of control in recent years.

The discovery comes several weeks after eight MS-13 gang members were arrested in connection with the beating deaths of two teenage girls. "We will confirm the manner in which they were killed is consistent with the modus operandi of MS-13".

The killings began in September with the deaths of Nisa Mickens, 15, and Kayla Cuevas, 16.

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.

Police have not commented on whether the bodies found on Wednesday could be linked to the earlier murders or if the victims were teenagers or young adults.
