An anonymous referee is acknowledged for providing constructive comments that improve the presentation of this paper. We thank the support by NASA through grant HST-GO13459 (PI: Treu). This paper is based on observations made with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, and utilizes gravitational lensing models produced by PIs Bradac Natarajan & Kneib (CATS), Merten & Zitrin, Sharon, and Williams, and the GLAFIC and Diego groups. This lens modeling was partially funded by the HST Frontier Fields program conducted by STScI. STScI is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. under NASA contract NAS 5-26555. The lens models were obtained from the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST). Ground-based data have been obtained with the MUSE and KMOS spectrographs at the ESO VLT Telescopes.
