Gang stabs man 100 times, beheads him, carves out his heart

A man was stabbed 100 times, beheaded and had his heart cut out by alleged El Salvadorian gang members in a park near Washington DC, a court reportedly heard on Thursday.

Miguel Lopez-Abrego, believed to be a member of the notorious “MS-13” gang, appeared in Montgomery County District Court charged with murder and was remanded in custody, according to Montgomery Community Media.

The 19-year-old, who was arrested in North Carolina earlier this month, was one of 10 alleged gang members who planned and took part in the murder at Wheaton Regional Park, just north of the U.S. capital.

Police only became aware of the murder in September, when an informant led them to a shallow grave in the park.

They have yet to identify the victim, described as a Hispanic male, and believe the murder took place between last December and last March.

Prosecutor Kelly McGann told the court that Lopez-Abrego helped dig the grave before the murder, and used a walkie-talkie to inform other gang members that the victim had arrived in the park.

He was also the first person to stab the victim, McGann told the court.

“There is no possibility he wouldn’t be a danger to the community,’’ he said as he argued for bail to be denied.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has regularly linked immigrants with crime, has vowed to eradicate the gang and his administration said it is prioritising the prosecution and deportation of gang members.

Are you over 100? Then you've got a better chance of living even longer!

It’s considered an inescapable fact of life: the older you get, the more likely death becomes. But a new research conucted in Germany disproves of that suggestinh that the chances of dying may level off – at least for those who make it to 105 years old.
The study found that death rates, which rise exponentially in adulthood, begin to decelerate after 80 years old and appear to eventually plateau, or even decline slightly, after the age of 105. By that point, the chances of passing away in a given year are approximately 50-50.“It’s the equivalent of tossing a coin each year,” said Prof Jim Vaupel, a specialist in ageing at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Germany and one of the authors. The findings add fuel to an unusually hostile debate between two camps of scientists, who are locked in an escalating dispute about whether humans are approaching their upper limit in terms of lifespan.The latest paper, from Vaupel’s team who argue there is no evidence of a looming lo…
