STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) - Police say five members of the MS-13 gang have been arrested after a 16-year-old’s body was dumped and set on fire.

Prince George’s County police said Jacsun Chicas, who lived in northern Virginia, was killed in a Maryland home and his remains were dumped near the Rappahannock River in Stafford.

Police said Chicas had been stabbed as many as 100 times. The body was discovered after a Stafford County sheriff’s deputy noticed a fire on the side of the road.

Chicas’ mother told NBC Washington she believes her son was targeted because he was getting out of gang life and MS-13 suspected he was cooperating with police.

All five suspects are charged with first-degree murder. One of the suspects is 16, and is being charged as an adult.

  • Jonathan Castillo-Rivera, 20, of Annandale
  • Christian Martinez-Ramirez, 16, of Falls Church
  • Kevin Rodriguez-Flores, 18, no fixed address
