A man had his heart ripped out and was beheaded by MS-13 gang members at a park near Washington D.C.

Roughly ten members of the violent El Salvadorian gang MS-13 communicated with walkie-talkies as they approached their victim in Wheaton, Maryland, before they stabbed him 100 times.

Court reports revealed that his “heart was excised from his chest and thrown into the grave.”

Authorities have not yet identified the victim, but he is believed to be a Hispanic male, WTOP reported.

The incident reportedly took place in the spring, but authorities only recovered the body in Wheaton Regional Park on September 5th after receiving a tip.

The gang reportedly prepared the victim’s grave before the gruesome murders.

Investigators said a post-mortem autopsy determined that the incident was a homicide from “sharp force injuries.”

Law enforcement officials said a purported member of the gang, 19-year-old Miguel Angel Lopez-Abrego, has been taken into custody on first-degree murder charges.

Police arrested Lopez-Abrego was arrested earlier this month,  with two other MS-13 gang members from the D.C. area, who were also sought for unrelated arrest warrants on first-degree murder charges.

Maryland authorities have implicated MS-13 up to 18 murders over the past two years in Montgomery County.
