One of ten suspects in the torture and killing of a 15-year-old girl in Virginia alleged to be connected to the infamous MS-13 gang and was wearing a court-ordered ankle bracelet at the time of the murder.

Police revealed that the horrific murder of Damaris Reyes Rivas in Fairfax County was recorded on a cellphone. The suspects, which include six minors, murdered Rivas out of revenge for the killing of 21-year-old Christian Sosa Rivas on New Year’s Eve.

The ages of the ten suspects range from 15 to 21-years-old, and the video footage shows how they abused the teen at length before killing her.

The four adult suspects have been identified as Cindy Blanco Hernandez, Aldair Miranda Carcamo and Jose Castillo Rivas, all 18-years-old, along with 21-year-old Wilmer Sanchez-Serrano.

Authorities say Damaris Reyes Rivas was tortured and killed. She was 15. (HANDOUT)

“Some of the videos depict the interrogators holding a knife, poking and stabbing the victim with a large pointed log while the victim exhibited signs of life,” the warrant obtained by NBC in Washington revealed.

“In one of the videos, the victim is lying on the ground surrounded by dead leaves and bleeding heavily from large wounds on different areas of her body.”

The video is “date-stamped January 8, 2017” and includes “the interrogation and taunting of the victim by several males,” an affidavit stated.

Authorities believe that Damaris Reyes Rivas was deceived by her killers, and then taken into the woods. Her remains were discovered near an industrial park.

One of the juvenile suspects was wearing an ankle bracelet because he was on probation at the time of the incident. The suspect claimed to have associations with the MS-13 gang, Fox 5 reported. Several of the suspects also had links to the violent gang.

The MS-13 gang originated in Los Angeles but has expanded to other parts of the U.S., into Central America and other parts of the world.

Last week. two MS-13 gang members in Texas are currently charged with the murder of 15-year-oldĀ Genesis Lizbeth Cornejo in a “satanic” ritual.

Damaris Reyes Rivas’ mother had said that her daughter once dated Christian Sosa Rivas. So far, six individuals have been charged.

Furthermore, the remains of two people were discovered in a park in Fairfax County on Thursday. Police are investigating whether MS-13 are responsible for the possible homicides.
