Gang superiors ordered three MS-13 members to mutilate a Klein Forest high school student whose body was dumped in the Sam Houston National Forest last month, Walker County investigators said Friday.
Capt. Tim Whitecotton of the Walker County Sheriff's Office said 16-year-old Josael Guevara was also in the gang but "somehow made the higher-ups mad."
Whitecotton described it as "a relation strike among the MS-13. They were all members of the gang."
Guevara's body was discovered on Sept. 23. Cristian Zamora, 22, was arrested the same day.
Jose Bonilla-Romero, 17, was arrested Oct. 3, and Ricardo Lara, 18, was arrested on Monday.
All three have been charged with murder and are in the Walker County Jail, with bail for each set at $1 million.
Whitecotton said the killers used a machete, which the FBI says is MS-13's weapon of choice.http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Gang-bosses-ordered-death-of-Klein-Forest-4889182.php?cmpid=hpbn
