Houston: Satanic Kidnap/Murder by MS-13 Gang Members
I have read another report that there were 3 girls kidnapped in total. The one who was murdered was just 15 years of age.

After four days, the girl said she was taken to a different apartment where six gang members lived, and Flores kept a makeshift Satanic shrine.
Authorities say she was held against her will there for two weeks, given drugs and alcohol to keep her disoriented, and sexually assaulted by some of the men.
She also said she was held down while Flores tattooed a giant grim reaper from her knee to her foot, the Houston Chronicle reported.
She told investigators that a second girl she only knew as 'Genesis' also was held at the apartment.

Cops release photo reconstruction of girl the pair 'lured into the woods and killed' to find out her identity
Authorities released the facial reconstruction image of one of the pair's alleged victims in a bid to identify her.
The girl - aged between 15 and 25 - was found dead on the morning of February 16.
She was also shot in the neck and torso.
Police said Rivera had confessed to leading the woman to a remote area and shooting her.
The photo was created by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on behalf of Harris County officials.
The girl is described as being Hispanic, around five feet tall and 108 pounds.
Her hair was dark and wavy, and she had pierced ears.
She was also wearing three metal rings, one with an elephant pattern, one with leaf-like patterns, and one with small reflective stones.
A previous image of the woman, taken after she died, was released by the The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences on February 21.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
The victim was also wearing three metal rings, one with an elephant pattern, one with leaf-like patterns, and one with small reflective stonesGenesis lashed out at their captors by destroying the makeshift Satanic shrine, the first victim told police.
Flores responded by sacrificing a cigarette to the gang's shrine, but then said the 'Beast' required a soul sacrifice, according to the court hearing.
When the 14-year-old girl woke up the next day, Genesis was gone.
That girl was found shot dead in the head and chest on February 16, and has not yet been identified.
Police said Rivera had confessed in the shooting.
The gang member says crew boss Flores told him 'Prepare yourself, it's your turn,' according to police.
The two men then took Genesis from the apartment on the pretense of meeting a dealer to buy weed.
Rivera shot the woman in the head, killing her, and the older gang member Flores then took the gun and fired a second shot in her chest, police believe.
The dead girl is described as being Hispanic, around five feet tall and 108 pounds.
Her hair was dark and wavy, and she had pierced ears.
Police released a composite sketch of the unidentified victim, asking anyone with information to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
Rivera and Flores are each being held on $150,000 bond in Harris County Jail.
However, federal authorities have placed a hold on the illegal aliens, meaning they would be taken into federal custody if released on bail.
Both men have requested a court-appointed lawyer. They are scheduled to appear in court on April 18.
