This is absolutely devastating.
Four students from Florida murdered their classmate back in June in a scheme that is simply out of fiction books.
Desiray Strickland, 18, Christian Colon, 19, Jonathan Lucas, 18, and Kaheem Arbelo, 20, planned to kill 17-year-old Jose Amaya Guardado for two weeks before finally hacking him in the face with a machete and burying him alive in the woods.
And as if that weren’t twisted enough, Desiray and Kaheem proceeded to have sex right next to the teen’s shallow grave…
The foursome were arrested over the course of a week mid-August and confessed to the premeditated murder.
Jose’s brothers discovered his body three days after he went missing on June 28.
Three of the four have been charged with first-degree murder, while Christian got second-degree murder and conspiracy charges over the killing.
Our thoughts are with Jose’s friends and family at this unimaginably difficult time.
Rest in peace, Jose.
