Three men charged with second degree murder in connection with the March 27 death of a Lynchburg teenager, whose body was found in Bedford County, are undocumented Salvadoran illegal immigrants with ties to the notorious MS-13 gang, Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown announced Friday.
Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown said more than five years ago gang activity could filter into this county because of its location between Lynchburg and Roanoke.
Last Monday, his worst fears were realized. That came when the body of a 17-year-old Lynchburg teen was found on Roaring Run Road in Bedford County, having been allegedly murdered by three undocumented illegal aliens with ties to the MS-13 gang.
Sixth District Congressman Bob Goodlatte has asked for information on the three individuals charged with the murder of a 17-year-old teenager from Lynchburg, whose body was found March 27 on Roaring Run Road in Bedford County.
