In one of the most savage crimes of the year, a Mississippi man was decapitated while still alive — and authorities say the bloodthirsty MS-13 gang may be behind the inhuman act!

An autopsy performed on the burned body of Jeremy Jerome Jackson reveals the 30-year-old suffered a nonfatal gunshot wound to his leg — before his head was lopped off, and placed on the porch of a nearby home in Jackson, Miss.

Police Chief Lee Vance calls the crime "truly unique" and says due to the extreme nature of the case, the local force has called in the FBI.

MS-13, the vicious gang founded in L.A. by Central American immigrants, has expanded through the U.S. to become an international syndicate, law enforcement experts say. The hoodlums are known for decapitating and burning victims.

"They displayed him and you could ride down the street and see it on the step."
