JUPITER, Florida — Onesimo “Marcelino” Lopez-Ramos was savagely beaten to death in the brief time it took Heather Burga to go inside to use the bathroom.
From the window, Burga saw a sudden frenzy of flashlights darting across the darkened yard, where moments earlier she had been quietly drinking a late-night beer with her friend Marcelino and two of his family members.
“No one was yelling; it was just commotion—suddenly there were people running all over the yard,” she said, remembering the night of Friday, April 17.

When Burga returned outside, 18-year-old Marcelino was slumped dead in the driveway, laying face-down with blood spilling from his head. The mysterious assailants had scampered off into the thickening night, leaving Burga and Marcelino’s injured brother to wait for the police in panicked disbelief.
