Chilling details of the MS-13 ‘Diablita’ trial |  Urban Legend with Kevin Sheehan (Video)

Leniz “Diablita” Escobar was found guilty of the 2017 murders of four young men on Long Island. The “Little Devil” lured the victims, aged 16 to 20, in the words of Central Islip and hacked them to death with a machete – all to “poke fun” at the MS-13 gang. One victim, Alex, who lived to tell the tale, said he and his buddies put up gang signs on social media to get girls’ attention.

Find out how The Post’s Kevin Sheehan covered this intense story from the courtroom – where no recording devices were allowed. “I literally completed two Steno blocks in two days,” Sheehan said, having to run outside several times to type her notes. It also details the disturbing testimony of a cooperating witness, Escobar’s boyfriend. “It was terrifying to be in the presence of this individual,” he said.
