Five suspects indicted for the murder of the mob in August: death of a man from the city of Manassas


Five suspects have been charged with murder in the mob following the death in August of a 24-year-old man from the city of Manassas, police said Monday. A grand jury from Prince William County on Monday accused three adults and two miners of "lynching," a little-used charge, defined in Virginia as any act of violence committed by a group of people resulting in the death of someone. Police in the city of Manassas found 24-year-old Reynaldo Eliazar Araujo shot and wounded in a house in the 10000 block of Massie Street shortly after 2 am on August 30, police said. There were also bullet holes in the door of the house. Araujo was declared dead on the scene. The police did not reveal any information indicating that the victim had been hanged. They did not immediately respond to requests for comment explaining why the suspects were accused of lynching. Those indicted on Monday were Terrence Tyrese Martin, 18, of Manassas; Ebelin Jojana Lopez, 19, from Manassas; Seni Jimenez Blanco, 19, from Manassas Park; and two minors, 17 years old. Police said the minors would be tried as adults. .
