(Scroll down for video) A teen along with her friends hacked a student to death with a machete before having sex at the murder scene, police in Florida said.
Miami-Dade police said that they have arrested 20-year-old Kaheem Arbelo, 18-year-old Jonathan Lucas, 19-year-old Christian Colon, and 18-year-old Desiray Strickland, in connection with the murder of 17-year-old Jose Amaya Guardado.
The mother of the victim told police that she came to the United States from El Salvador, in order to escape violence, and she never dreamed that her son will be brutally murdered in this country.
According to the police investigation, the suspects had planned the attack two weeks in advance.
Strickland lured Guardado to a wooded area near the Homestead Job Corps, which is a facility for students at risk managed by the U.S. Department of Labor.
One there, Guardado was ordered to lie in a shallow grave before being hacked to death. Family members began searching for Guardado after he failed to come home in the evening.
His brother discovered the body after a few days. Guardado’s parents said that he was a quiet boy who kept to himself for the most part and never bothered anyone.
The parents said that they believe the suspects had been bullying their boy and taking his money.
Investigators believe that Strickland and another suspect remained at the murder scene to celebrate the murder by having sex.
