The Belford Boys
According to the police investigation, the three boys were dead after stealing two bird cages that belonged to a drug dealer’s uncle. The trio would have been convicted by the ‘crime court’. During the attacks, one of the boys did not resist and ended up dying. The other two would have been killed to “solve the problem”.
