The investigation into the murder of a 19-year-old Mississippi teen who was doused with gasoline and burned alive, has resulted in the arrests of 17 suspected gang members between the ages of 18 and 40, though none are charged in her death, reports The Clarion-Ledger.
The FBI says the men have been charged in north Mississippi as a part of a major operation called “Operation Bite Back.”
The suspects have been charged with a variety of crimes, from child endangerment and sales of narcotics to possession of stolen firearms and possession of counterfeit money, Fox News reported.
“It’s taken eight or nine months, if not a little longer, to get to this point,” Panola County District Attorney John Champion said, in the Clarion-Ledger. “And this is not over by any stretch of the imagination.”
