Three teenage members of the violent El Salvadorian street gang MS-13 were arrested and charged with murdering a 14-year-old girl Thursday.
The body of Ariana Funes-Diaz was found in a creek in Prince George’s County, Md., according to a Fox News report. She was hacked to death with a machete and beaten with a baseball bat in what police are describing as an attempt to stop her from talking to authorities, commonly known as “snitching.”
“Police on Thursday charged Josue Fuentes-Ponce, 16, of Bladensburg, Md.; Joel Escobar, 17, of Northeast Washington; and Cynthia Hernandez-Nucamendi, 14, of Lothian, Md., with the murder. All were charged as adults,” the report said.
The murder victim and the three teens charged with her killing all were reportedly involved in the kidnapping and robbery of a man on April 17. The next day, Funes-Diaz was allegedly murdered by her co-conspirators.
A fourth suspect is being sought in connection with the murder.
Just months ago, three teenage MS-13 members were arrested on Long Island for a similar violent crime. Though beaten and stabbed, the victim of that crime survived.
Big League Politics reported:
Three illegal aliens, all members of the vicious El Salvadoran gang MS-13, stabbed a 16-year-old near his high school at a Burger King on Long Island, New York.
“The 16-year-old victim told police he was at the fast-food restaurant with friends when six of his classmates from Huntington High School entered and began staring at them menacingly,” according to WABC.
The teen left the restaurant only to be followed by the gang members, who attacked him in the parking lot, stabbing the victim repeatedly.
Ramon Arevalo Lopez, a 19-year-old illegal alien, allegedly perpetrated the crime with two of his friends, also illegals.
“Lopez and two other suspects, 20-year-old Nobeli Montes Zuniga and 17-year-old Oscar Canales Molina, were charged with second-degree assault,” the report said.
Police reportedly caught up with the suspects only a few minutes after the attack, and found the attackers with blood on their hands and clothes. Molina had two knives on his person, one in each sock.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
