In the first Instagram post on June 22, Caine wrote that the only way he would be apprehended by the police is if he turned himself in. He wrote in a post: "Keep sleepin on us trini n—as," in what is a clear reference to the dangerous Trinitarios street gang which was the gang that allegedly killed the teen. He added: "No n—a getting away with rape ion give a f*** who it is."
Investigators in the case have said that the people who launched the brutal attack on Guzman-Feliz killed him in what is believed to be a case of mistaken identity. A female relative of one of the gang members was filmed having sex with the man who is believed to have been the one the gang mistook Guzman-Feliz for. Caine had threatened all users on social media who re-posted the sex video by saying: "Stop repostin bro sister or we gon find u. I got gang in ya state!"
Officers from the New York Police Department are on the lookout for the Instagram user. Guzman-Feliz was a 15-year-old teen looking forward to being a police officer. Caine wrote in one of the posts on June 22: "Ya n—as dumb mad I’m still free n ima stay free ! This lifestyle not for ya so don’t act like u know wtf goin on ! Junior was a mistake but the next nigga won’t be !!"

Guzman-Feliz was a member of the NYPD Explorers and he had hoped to become a detective one day. He was brutally hacked to death on June 20 night by around six members of a gang outside a deli in the Bronx. One of the members of the gang was even carrying a machete.
The post that was put up by one of the Caine accounts shows the alleged knife sitting in a pool of blood in what looks like a wooden surface. The caption for the post read: "Police already know who I am, that dont mean they gonna catch me. Ya dont even know the real story why we did it and I wont snitch on gang."

One of the other Caine posts had the caption: "Maybe I do deserve to die I shoulda been dead already with the shit I been thru but it aint eva stop me. When my time come Ima be ready and the police gon have to kill me."
It has been reported that at least five people have been arrested as of June 24 in connection to the vicious slaying of the aspiring detective. It was also not clear immediately if the Instagram user was in the group of those who had been arrested so far.
Alvarez, 19, has been charged with second-degree murder and gang assault. Police say there are other suspects still out there, reports ABC news. On Sunday night, police picked up persons of interest in Paterson, New Jersey, the Bronx and even the Dominican Republic to lead them to this arrest. Some of them are believed to have been at the bodega, or participated in some way in the gory assault.
"We feel proud of the justice. They are doing a really good job, and we deeply appreciate it," said Lesandro's brother, Manny Ortiz.
