Banegas' aunt says his funeral will be held in his native Honduras.

"I hope that if he is caught, justice is done", she said.

The killings last week are among 11 that have struck the working-class immigrant communities of Brentwood and Central Islip (EYE'-slihp), on eastern Long Island, since September. "The way in which my son died is very ugly". The other thee were 18-year-old Jorge Tigre, a classmate of Justin; 18-year-old Jefferson Villalobos, 18; and his cousin, 20-year-old Michael Banegas.

Justin is among four young men found dead in Central Islip Recreation Village Park on April 12.

Backed fighters make gains against Islamic State in northern Syria
The statement was made in the name of a previously unheard of "shared operations room" between Russia, Iran and allied forces. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Russia's inaction played a part in fuelling a deadly gas attack on Syrian civilians.

A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to arrests in the case.

President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions both mentioned MS-13 on Tuesday, and Sessions specifically referenced the Long Island killings before meeting with top federal law enforcement officials on ways to dismantle ultraviolent transnational gangs. "We will continue the strategy that has led to over 160 arrests of known gang members since September". We will secure our border, expand immigration enforcement, and choke-off supply lines. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently spoke on the gang's growing presence in the USA, stating that the group could be classified as a terrorist organization. "I promised to get tough and we are!"

About 200 mourners, many of them young, attended the Mass. Police kept a low-key presence around the church. Police suspect the killings may have been at the hands of the MS-13 street gang.

MS-13, also called Mara Salvatrucha, is believed to have been founded as a neighborhood street gang in Los Angeles in the mid-1980s by immigrants fleeing a civil war in El Salvador.

Curtin said Justin and his sister had once been in a church youth group at St. Joseph. Llivicura was a Bellport High School student from a devoutly Catholic Ecuadorian family and was a mechanic who loved cars, according to the pastor at his parish.

This story has been corrected to show 11 bodies have been found since September, not 11 killed since September.
