Almost exactly two years ago, mourners gathered at Brentwood High School on Long Island to remember teenagers Kayla Cuevas and Nisa Mickens, who were allegedly killed by suspected MS-13 gang members. The night was pierced with hundreds of candle flames marshaled on the football field, though the two friends dreamed of playing professional basketball.
"MS-13 Is Suspected of Killing Her Daughter. Now She Is Dead in a Dispute over the Memorial." is from the September 15, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Alex Horton and narrated by Sam Scholl.
