MS-13 Members Plead Guilty To Using Facebook To Kidnap And Murder Victim

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The last of three gang members from MS-13 plead guilty Friday to using Facebook to lure a victim to Maryland where he was drowned and then stabbed repeatedly with a machete.

Court papers showed that 23-year-old Reynaldo “Fuego” Granados-Vasquez, 22-year-old Neris Moreno-Martinez, and 21-year-old Jose “Liar” Melendez-Rivera kidnapped and murdered Jordy Mejia, whom they believed to be a member of a rival gang.

According to their plea agreements, the three defendants were a part of the L.A. clique of MS-13. All three were citizens of El Salvador and unlawfully present in the United States.

Moreno-Martinez told Melendez-Rivera that Mejia was a part of the rival “18th Street Gang” during the summer of 2016. There is no evidence that Mejia was actually a member of any gang.
